GOOD NEWS! It's now illegal for governments to return #climate  refugees to their home countries, thanks to a landmark ruling by the UN Human Rights Committee. Read more:

This should be obvious. But unfortunately there are still too many people who need reminding. 🤦‍♀️ RT to spread the message. 🤦‍♀️ #SexWithoutConsentIsRape

Children need their parents. Our new report with @refugeecouncil  and @savechildrenuk  tells the stories of child refugees living in the UK who are being kept apart from their families because of government policy. #FamiliesTogether 

When we come together real change is possible! We've done it before, and we can do it again 💪 We believe that children need their parents. If you do too, sign the #FamiliesTogether  petition and help change refugees lives 🏠🧦🎒👓 👲

The Home Office's unfair rules are tearing families apart. If we all come together we can change this. If you agree that children need their parents, share this video and take a minute to sign our petition: . Let's keep 👵👲 #FamiliesTogether 

#Bahrain upheld the decision to execute 2 pro-democracy activists even though they were tortured for confessions. Tell their Ministry of Defence to give them a fair trial and halt all executions: #enddeathpenalty

Arbitrarily arrested on unbailable and spurious charges. Arresting #Tanzania  human rights lawyer, Tito Magoti, is a clear attempt to silence government critics by keeping them behind bars. He must be released immediately.

“We never thought they would receive us like that,” said Melisa, who traveled with her son, aged 12. “They treated us like dogs.” 100s of Central American migrants are stranded right now on the banks of a river at the Mexican border. #PeopleBeforeBorders 

'Pretty much nothing has been done.' @GretaThunberg  said to political leaders at #Davos2020 . World leaders must choose between fossil fuels and human rights. The evidence is all around us that we can’t have both. #ClimateEmergency

Just in case anyone needs reminding 🤦 🤦‍♀️ 🤦‍♂️ 🤦‍♀️ Trans rights = human rights. Trans rights = human rights. Trans rights = human rights. Trans rights = human rights. Trans rights = human rights. Trans rights = human rights. #TransRightsAreHumanRights ✊🏾

Police bans on #ExtinctionRebellion  protests in London is an unlawful constraint of our rights to #FreedomofExpression  and peaceful assembly. Protesters' rights must be respected and their calls for urgent #climateaction  heard.

Resist sexism Resist racism Resist hate Resist cruelty RESIST TRUMP. We're with activists right now opposite US Embassy at Vauxall Bridge dropping ‘Resist Trump’ banners ✊✊🏽✊🏿

@theresa_may ’s comments are reckless and misinformed.

Three women have been jailed and charged with prostitution after this video of them not wearing veils on a train in Iran went viral. Defending women's rights is not a crime. Let's get these charges dropped! Take action now 👉

Police used excessive force in the #CatalanReferendum , injuring peaceful protesters. This must be investigated:

British mum Nazanin has spent over 3 years in a brutal Iranian prison without committing a crime. Will you use your voice to help free people like her?

Equivalent of 5 passenger planes full of people have drowned last week alone #DontLetThemDrown
