Anni Lanz,a 73-year-old woman, has done nothing wrong & committed no crime. By driving across the border to help a young & traumatized man who had been forced to sleep rough in sub-zero temperatures, she showed compassion, not criminality.

But yesterday, Evelyn was declared innocent. Now that Evelyn has been acquitted, we call on El Salvador to end the shameful & discriminatory practice of criminalizing women once & for all by immediately revoking the nation’s draconian anti-abortion laws.

In 2016, Evelyn Hernández, 21, suffered an obstetric emergency in her home in El Salvador which resulted in the loss of her pregnancy. Once at hospital, staff reported her to police. She was arrested & sentenced to 30 yrs in jail for aggravated homicide.

The Hong Kong government must immediately withdraw the extradition law amendments, ensure the right to freedom of peaceful assembly & allow an independent investigation into the use of force by Hong Kong police against protesters.

So what’s this ”be water” philosophy being used in Hong Kong? It may have something to do with Bruce Lee 😉

The people of Jammu & Kashmir should not be treated as pawns in a political crisis, & the international community must come together to call for their human rights to be respected.

We reiterate our calls to Indian government to act in accordance with int. human rights law. Their actions have thrown ordinary people’s lives into turmoil, subjecting them to unnecessary pain & distress on top of the years of human rights violations they have already endured.

For 1st time in decades U.N. Sec. Council is taking up the issue of Jammu & Kashmir. They need to remember that their mandate is to protect int. peace & security, so they should resolve the situation in a way that puts rights of J&K people at its centre.

The scenes in Zimbabwe today demonstrate how far the authorities will go to repress dissent. Baton-wielding police unleashed a brutal assault on protesters, who had gathered to protest the socio-economic conditions which are causing suffering to so many.
