President Trump's ugly, racist targeting of four Congresswomen should concern everyone. His words expose the xenophobia at the heart of his despicable immigration policies. His agenda is only serving to further hatred, division & suffering. It must stop.

Our new report into gun violence in the US shows how the govt is compounding people's suffering by failing to provide them with adequate healthcare. This is a human rights crisis. We are calling on the US govt to provide survivors with reparations.

Tomorrow, the UN's top human rights body will vote to investigate the Duterte admin's murderous "war on drugs" in the Philippines. For 1000s of victims & bereaved families with no hope for justice at home, this is a critical day & a vital vote.

Peaceful environmental protesters should never be treated as criminals. As the climate crisis unfolds we should be championing the people speaking out for our right to a healthy environment, not criminalizing them.

It is only with the advent of empathy and unity along side the end of our use of fossil fuels will the climate crisis be mitigated. Too many people believe that it is too late to stop the climate crisis, too many people are unaware, too many people are not taking action.

Good news from Sri Lanka. This happened because you helped us resist and speak out, and is proof that activism works. The fight for abolition of the death penalty continues.
