BREAKING: @POTUS' ambitious goal to vaccinate 70% of the world by this time next year will not be met with the trickle of charity currently on offer from rich countries. Leaders must commit to bold action, not meagre hand-me-downs. #UNGA #PeoplesVaccine bit.ly/3AvZJuJ

The Chinese government is rooting out Islamic beliefs in #Xinjiang. Over 1 million people have been detained in camps and all experienced torture. Call on the Chinese authorities to immediately release all those wrongfully detained: amn.st/6013yAEmx
Pls RT: Iranian Kurdish prisoner, Heidar Ghorbani, is at risk of imminent execution despite the fact that his conviction is based on torture-tainted "confessions” - obtained while he was forcibly disappeared. @khamenei_ir must QUASH his death sentence & grant him a fair retrial
We call on the @UN_HRC to challenge the UK govt's plans for an amnesty for #HumanRights abuses during the #NorthernIreland conflict. It is a betrayal of victims still seeking truth, justice and accountability. Watch the video to learn more:
It’s painfully disappointing to hear the Prime Minister making light of #HumanRights abuses in #SaudiArabia. A penal system known for systematic unfairness, torture and the #DeathPenalty is no laughing matter. twitter.com/guardian/statu…
For months we have spoken about how the Policing Bill will compound racism in the criminal justice system. Now, the Government accept that this will happen - but that it is "justified." It is an outrage. Email the PM now urging him to act: amnesty.org.uk/actions/uk-gov… twitter.com/Independent/st…
Addis waited 13 years before receiving a positive decision on her asylum claim. She had to leave behind her 5 year old daughter whom she has lost contact with. Lina would be 19 now, meaning if they do find each other- they won't be able to reunite under the current rules.

So many reasons why this response is both wrong & nonsensical. But one is sheer arrogance of thinking this country has any entitlement to collect people & deposit them in another country without agreement of either. Imagine if France proposed this but in other direction. twitter.com/GMB/status/143…

Young people are being suspended from school for attending protests and standing against injustice. No matter how young you are, everyone has rights. Stand with young people everywhere and call on all governments of the UK to protect child rights. amn.st/6012yI3yw
From the #PimlicoProtests to #FridaysForFuture climate marches - young people have stood up for human rights time and time again. But - right now - we’re seeing a backlash against children claiming their rights.

The Prime Minister MUST show that he genuinely cares about the plight of Anoosheh and other British citizens detained in Iran. Join us in calling on the Prime Minister and his government to ACT NOW and help #FREEANOOSHEH amnesty.org.uk/freeanoosheh
We’ve written letters to government, we’ve contacted all MPs, and we’ve asked the PM for a meeting many times. The government SAY that Anoosheh’s case is a priority, but the Prime Minister still hasn’t even met with Anoosheh’s wife and children.
Anoosheh’s family describe his life as ‘nothing short of hell’. He is held in terrible conditions and is at risk of new variants of Covid-19 in an overcrowded cell. For FOUR years, the government have failed to bring him home to his family.
TODAY we headed to @10DowningStreet hoping that the Prime Minister would meet Anoosheh’s family on the FOURTH anniversary of his arrest. But despite many pleas, the Prime Minister was a no-show.
Hey @BorisJohnson - where are you? We’ve asked you to meet with the family of British father Anoosheh - who is unjustly imprisoned in Iran. Today on the 4th anniversary of his arrest, you still haven’t shown you care. So we’re waiting outside @10DowningStreet for you...⏰
