After 2 years of illegal detention, we demand @PJdeHonduras immediate release of the Guapinol Defenders. Their detention for protecting water & land - at the request of @MP_Honduras & @LosPinaresHN - is arbitrary & unjust. They are innocent #FreedomForGuapinol #GuapinolInnocent

A shortage of Covid-19 vaccines & vaccine resistance is threatening to collapse Somalia’s fragile healthcare system with less than 1% of Somalians vaccinated, says Dr. Abdi Tari Ali, Deputy Director of Trócaire Somalia. trocaire.org/news/mass-vacc…
'Stark and shameful': of almost 5bn vaccines administered, 75% have gone to 10 countries. As we start to talk about boosters in Ireland, only 2% of people in Africa have had one shot. #VaccineEquity @peoplesvaccine @DrMikeRyan theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

"The world is following events in Afghanistan with a heavy heart and deep disquiet about what lies ahead. All of us have seen the images in real time. Chaos. Unrest. Uncertainty. And fear. " UN Secretary-General António Guterres today un.org/press/en/2021/…
"People rightly fear that a seizure of power by the Taliban will erase the human rights gains of the past two decades" says UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. UN Security Council must take action to protect rights & prevent further atrocities, particularly against women in 🇦🇫
Haiti death toll rises to 1,297 as a tropical storm nears. Our partners @CaritasHaiti are on the ground. The needs of the population are immense. "There is an absolute demand for food, water, tents, hygiene kits and first aid" Father Jean-Herve Francois, Director of Caritas Haiti

We are calling for a fair trial and the end of impunity for Jhony Salgado. Jhony is a victim of a flawed judicial process that seeks to criminalise his involvement in the 2017 post-election protests. The evidence shows he was not present at the protest clovekvtisni.cz/en/honduras-th…

Thank you to all the Oireachtas members who signed this letter calling on Ireland to show leadership and support the #TRIPSWaiver. Depending on a very small number of companies to vaccinate the world in an equitable and timely manner has failed. peoplesvaccine.ie twitter.com/aliceeire/stat…
