This is what happened to people protesting outside a bank in China. Peaceful protest is a human right ✊

There's no place for jailing artists for making art. Cuban authorities must drop any charges against the peaceful July 11 protesters and guarantee their safe return home.

Stop enabling white supremacy. Stop killing Black people. Stop enabling racism. Please stop.

“Taken together, these policies form a system of repression that discriminates against women and girls in almost every aspect of their lives. Every daily detail… is controlled and heavily restricted.” - @AgnesCallamard 

Myanmar's Mandalay Palace looks peaceful...but something sinister is going on inside.

Afghan women have come a long way. Until recently, they held political offices, attended schools and universities, were employed in many sectors, and ran their own businesses. These gains are now at serious risk. Women's rights are human rights.

These executions amount to arbitrary deprivation of lives and are another example of Myanmar’s atrocious human rights record.

“Less than one year after the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan, their draconian policies are depriving millions of women and girls of their right to lead safe, free and fulfilling lives,” said @AgnesCallamard , @amnesty  secretary general.

Justyna Wydrzyńska was charged for aiding an abortion in 2021. Her trial comes at a time when the threat to abortion rights has been brought into sharp focus by the overturn of #RoeVWade . Anything less than all charges being dropped would set a dangerous precedent in Poland.

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 

🗣️📢 Ready to fight back? Today at 5 pm, join others to protest. If we get loud, it’ll show that we are united across the country in opposition to abortion bans and it will be more difficult for states to strip our rights. Find a protest near you >>>
