5 years after the 709 Crackdown, individuals who speak up for human rights and lawyers who try to carry out their duties are still being intimidated by the Chinese authorities. China must stop intimidating human rights defenders and #FreeTheLawyers!
The fate of families locked up in detention now rests in @ICEgov’s hands. Will they separate families once more, or #FreeTheFamilies by July 17? Demand ICE to do the right thing & release all families together #RightsNow! bit.ly/freefamiliesto…
More than 80,000 people have told @ICEgov to #FreeKelly. Will you be one of them? Kelly is a transgender woman who has been locked up in ICE detention for more than 1,000 days. We must #FreeKelly! Take action: act.amnestyusa.org/page/61145/act…
Widespread police violence against protesters is a human rights crisis in the U.S. In a new report, @amnesty analyzes the use of excessive force against peaceful protesters. Join us and take action: amnestyusa.org/protest-map/
You 🚶marched, 🚶you #️⃣ posted, #️⃣ you 🗣️ talked to your friends and family.🗣️ Now it’s time to tell the Senate that police violence must 🛑 END 🛑 and they need to take action T#JusticeInPolicinglicing ✍️ Wact.amnestyusa.org/page/62976/act…8EaRcP ☎️ amnestyusa.org/calljGyeePg
Stop killing Black people. Stop attacking peaceful protesters. Stop enabling racism and white supremacy. Stop arresting journalists. Stop allowing police violence. Just stop. #BlackLivesMatter #RightsNow
The majority of the world has abandoned death penalty. 7 US states and 19 other countries executed people in 2019. 4 countries accounted for 86% of all 2019 confirmed global executions. Tell US authorities to call-off scheduled federal executions bit.ly/2Zed6zH
Protect human rights in the Philippines.
We need public safety solutions that work for ALL communities, no matter the color of your skin, who you worship or where you live. Tell your Senators to support the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act: act.amnestyusa.org/page/62976/act…
In 2018, Amnesty reported barrel bombs had killed tens of thousands of civilians in Syria and injured many more. Two years later, a new innovation in 3D printing may help save lives in these communities: fastcompany.com/90519471/how-3…
22 US states have abolished death penalty and 11 have not executed in 10+ years. We can live without the death penalty, more than half of the countries around the world do. Demand AG Barr to keep 17-year-long hiatus and call off federal executions bit.ly/2Zed6zH
The number of incidents of police violence against protesters is shocking and alarming. We demand police reforms to ensure our communities are safe from those intended to protect us. amnestyusa.org/protest-map/
The House-passed #JusticeInPolicingAct is a big step in police reform, but does not go far enough to eliminate qualified immunity. "We strongly believe that the functions of this bill do not require new funding,” said @Krissy_Roth. businessinsider.com/house-passes-p…
Not just a scream in their heart
Human rights lawyer #YuWensheng was sentenced to 4 years in prison after a secret trial. He was jailed solely for exercising his right to freedom of expression. Join us in calling on #China to release Yu Wensheng now! #FreeTheLawyers TAKE ACTION: amnestyusa.org/wp-content/upl…

The beat of the people will not be silenced. Are you listening?
States are beginning to restrict the use of surveillance and facial recognition from local law enforcement use, but it must be expanded to federal agencies, too. There must be far stricter laws around these emerging technologies. bloomberg.com/news/newslette…
Death penalty diverts resources and attention from the long-term changes that would effectively tackle the root causes of crime. It’s time to end the cycle of violence. Tell US Attorney General Barr to halt the scheduled federal executions bit.ly/2Zed6zH
Women’s rights means: - The right to control your body. - The right to health care, including abortion and birth control. - The right to love whom you choose. - The right to safety, no matter your body. - The right of equal treatment under the law.
China must stop intimidating the human rights defenders.
Do you think it’s time police stop using 👎 choke-holds 👎 racial and religious profiling 👎 no-knock warrants We do, too. Now tell your senatoract.amnestyusa.org/page/62976/act…RUKV
New evidence from @amnesty shows that indiscriminate airstrikes by the Myanmar military have killed civilians, including children, amid worsening armed conflict in Rakhine & Chin States. These are #HumanRights violations. 10,000 people have fled their homes in the past few days. twitter.com/amnesty/status…

Human rights lawyer #DingJiaxi has been held in detention for >6 months. Now he’s been charged with “inciting subversion” after joining a social gathering. He is at imminent risk of torture & other ill-treatment. #China #FreeTheLawyers NOW! TAKE ACTION: amnestyusa.org/wp-content/upl…

US death penalty is broken. Research and cases have consistently shown that race and quality of legal representation are determining factors in life/death decisions. Urge AG Barr to halt planned resumption of federal executions after 17 years bit.ly/2Zed6zH
Amazing work by #StopHateForProfit campaign to push advertisers to stand up to Facebook over racism on the platform. Shame Facebook isn’t listening. We need to overhaul Facebook’s business model that relies on intrusive surveillance and amplifying hate. twitter.com/rashadrobinson…
Protect people seeking safety
“Their unrelenting voices and the injustice of George Floyd’s death have brought about meaningful social change, united a movement for equal rights, and compelled activism and action in the midst of a global pandemic.” Read more from @jasmeetsidhu_dc: medium.com/@amnestyusa/i-…
As COVID-19 runs rampant in family detention, a judge ordered @ICEgov to release all children in its custody. But she doesn’t have jurisdiction over the parents. Families must not be separated. Tell ICE to #FreeTheFamilies together #RightsNow! @amnestyusa bit.ly/freefamiliesto…

Keeping your child in detention or getting separated from them indefinitely all during a pandemic…that’s not a “choice” any parent should have to make. We demand @ICEgov to release all families together now #FreeTheAll #SafeAndTogether #RightsNow! act.amnestyusa.org/page/60621/dat…

This administration cannot tear children away from their parents again. No family should be forced to choose between indefinite separation or detention during a pandemic.

The death penalty will not make us safer- as federal executions are set to resume on July 13th. Demand US Attorney General Barr to call off the death warrants and maintain progress toward abolition in the US bit.ly/2Zed6zH
ICE has now updated Judge Gee on their progress in creating a formal - soon to be legal - policy to separate parents & children. What does this mean? ICE can finalize & implement this separation protocol before July 17th & it'll be PERMANENT.

In the words of US District Judge Gee, “the family detention centers are ‘on fire’ and there is no more time for half measures.” @ICEgov must release all families together now #FreeThemAll #SafeAndTogether #RightsNow! act.amnestyusa.org/page/60621/dat…
Under the new law, critics of the government could be labeled 'terrorists'. It also gives security forces sweeping powers to act against 'terrorism' suspects. Counter-terrorism legislation that undermines human rights makes us all less safe.

The unfounded conviction of individuals such as Mr. Eser and Mr. Kılıç chills public debate, civic activism, and human rights advocacy in #Turkey. Turkey benefits from having more engaged voices, not fewer. bit.ly/2W1Ft1I #HumanRights @aforgutu

US death penalty system is broken, with racial bias, arbitrariness and poor legal representation affecting many cases. Help us ask Attorney General Barr to halt resumption of federal executions before July 13 bit.ly/2Zed6zH
They fled crimes against humanity, now they need our help.
The new research on police violence in the U.S. makes our case clear: we need dramatic reform in the approach to policing and public safety. Hear more from @AmnestyErnest on our demands: cbsnews.com/video/amnesty-…
Violent policing, especially towards Black people MUST END. ☎️ Call your senators TODAY and urge them to support the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act.☎️ amnestyusa.org/call
Abusive police are running rampant in our cities and towns using excessive, disproportionate force against protesters. These are our communities, and we demand they be protected. #PoliceReformNow amnestyusa.org/protest-map/
Facebook is failing to address racial justice demands of #StopHateForProfit campaign, even in face of its own damning new civil rights audit. We need to fix Facebook's broken business model that profits from surveillance and amplifying hate. nytimes.com/2020/07/08/tec…
