Journalists from around the region are expressing their solidarity with Akram, Abdelkhaleq, Hareth and Tawfiq. The world needs to KNOW their story. WATCH the video and demand the Huthi authorities #FreeTheFour . @abdusalamsalah 

COVID-19 is no excuse for ageism. Nothing is.

GREAT NEWS: After 1,051 days (almost 3 years!) in immigration detention, Kelly Gonzalez Aguilar is FREE! THANK YOU to all the activists who helped get her out. She should have never been locked up. Now @ICEgov  must free all families from detention!

We keep documenting the use of US weapons in strikes on Yemeni civilians. And a strike just killed a family of nine last weekend. @RepAdamSmith , will you cosponsor @RepMalinowski 's amendment? #YemenCantWait  @RefugeesIntl

We don’t think choke-holds, racial and religious profiling, no-knock warrants, and other violent police tactics are ok, do you, @senatemajldr ? Advance the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing  Act today.

With COVID-19 now in family detention, a federal judge said “family detention centers are ‘on fire’ and there is no time for half measures.” @ICEgov : End this once and for all and #FreeTheFamilies  together #RightsNow .

This shouldn’t even be debatable. Black lives matter, period. Everyone deserves to live in freedom, dignity, and safety. It’s time to pass the #JusticeInPolicing  Act, @JohnCornyn .

🚨 @ICEgov  is keeping Pastor Steven locked up in danger and trying to deport him to Uganda where he'll likely be killed. Detention is the last place he should be, second to his country of persecution #FreePastorSteven 

⚠️ Take action! ⚠️ Call your senators this week and tell them it’s past time we stop violence policing. This link will get you connected and give you a helpful script ⬇️ #JusticeInPolicing

We really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really need everyone to remember that seeking asylum is a fundamental human right.

Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime. Protest is not a crime.

Stop killing Black people. Stop attacking peaceful protesters. Stop enabling racism and white supremacy. Stop arresting journalists. Stop allowing police violence. Just stop. #BlackLivesMatter  #RightsNow 

US can't tell other countries to improve their records on policing and peaceful assembly if it won't clean up its own human rights record

Just a reminder.... Trans rights are human rights. Trans rights are human rights. Trans rights are human rights. Trans rights are human rights. Trans rights are human rights. Trans rights are human rights. Trans rights are human rights. Trans rights are human rights.

Concerned about reports of force against protesters in #StandingRock . Peaceful protest is a human right and police must show restraint.

BREAKING: We have withdrawn our highest honour, the Ambassador of Conscience Award, from Aung San Suu Kyi, in light of the Myanmar leader’s shameful betrayal of the values she once stood for.

The people of Sudan are protesting for their freedom, but authorities have shut down the internet and led a brutal crackdown in a bid to close them off from the rest of the world. The world needs to know what’s happening in Sudan. Help get their message out. #WeAreSudan 

2 weeks since abduction of Nigerian school girls. Where is the government? #BringBackOurGirls
