Big day for @ajassy  as @amazon 's new CEO. Here's a reminder for Amazon: workers' rights are human rights.

All children have dreams: Bristy wants to become a teacher, Mohabar—an engineer, Hojifa—a doctor, and Ayatullah, a weatherman.

One year ago, the National Security Law was passed in Hong Kong. As a result, here are 10 things that are now deemed as threats in Hong Kong: 🪧 Blank placards 🎶 Singing 👩🏽‍🏫 Teachers 📱 Tweeting 🚸 ChildrenPolitical opposition ✍️ Journalists 📖 Reading 🖼️ Museums 🎥 Cinemas

The violence against Tbilisi Pride organizers, activists and journalists was as lamentable as it was predictable. The Georgian authorities are responsible for failing to ensure their safety and their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.

Social media platforms like Twitter have helped Nigerians demand accountability from the authorities, particularly during last year's #EndSARS  protests. Join our call to end the suspension of Twitter in Nigeria👇

It's been over 6 months since the raging conflict began in Ethiopia's Tigray region. 6 months and counting.

Palestinian authorities in occupied West Bank have launched a chilling campaign of repression cracking down on peaceful protests with unlawful force, targeting journalists, civil society activists, & lawyers with arbitrary arrests & torturing detainees.

The UK Government rushing ahead with the #PolicingBill  is a major blow to human rights. This deeply-authoritarian bill hands police vast new powers to fine, remove or arrest ordinary people who simply wish to peacefully protest.

The #PolicingBill  would also enhance stop & search & restrict the right to roam, which disproportionately impact people from racialised & minority groups. This bill is highly likely to further entrenched racism & discrimination in British policing.

Iran’s @khamenei_ir  must quash the death sentences of protesters—Amirhossein Moradi, Saeed Tamjidi & Mohammad Rajabi—immediately! Their trial was unfair & they said they were subjected to torture through beatings, electric shocks and being hung upside down.  #اعدام_نکنید

The Indian government must immediately stop its escalating crackdown on protesters, farming leaders and journalists, amid ongoing nationwide demonstrations against three recently introduced farm laws.

End police violence and impunity in #Chile .

Brazil, Chile, Lebanon, Ecuador, Iraq, UK, Guinea, Hong Kong ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 Protests are breaking out across the globe & activists are demanding action.

We are deeply concerned over the mounting death toll in #Gaza  with 188 killed including 55 children. @IntlCrimCourt  must investigate Israel’s attack on al-Shati refugee camp on Saturday that killed 2 women & 8 children. Direct attacks on civilians are war crimes.

The Indian government must immediately stop its escalating crackdown on protesters, farming leaders and journalists, amid ongoing nationwide demonstrations against three recently introduced farm laws.

We welcome the fact that Julian Assange will not be sent to the USA, but this does not absolve the UK from having engaged in this politically-motivated process at the behest of the USA and putting media freedom and freedom of expression on trial.

The continuing crackdown on @AIIndia  over the last two years and the complete freezing of bank accounts is not accidental. This is not the end of Amnesty India's commitment to human rights, we will not be silenced by the attacks of the government.

COVID-19 is not an excuse for racism. Nothing is.
