  • Rights of migrants in action

    Migration is a growing phenomenon that occurs in every country. While many migrants move voluntarily – perhaps looking for economic opportunities or better living conditions – others do not have a choice. More and more people are forced to flee their homes and communities because of factors such as conflicts, insecurity, disaster or poverty. Many migrants succeed in establishing themselves in their new communities, but others face abuses and discrimination; and these are of primary concern for National Red Cross Red Crescent Societies and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. As migration is a global phenomenon, partnerships with government and non–governmental agencies, migrant groups and host communities and our National Society network, are essential alon...

  • Tibetans Demand UN Action on Human Rights

    Three Tibetan independence activists are nearly one month into a hunger strike outside of the United Nations in New York. They promise to continue their water-only fast until a fact-finding mission is sent to their homeland to assess the human rights situation there. On Monday night, New York police and medics forcibly transported the oldest striker, Dorjee Gyalpo, to a local hospital out of concern for his deteriorating condition. He remains in hospital but has refused food and is only accepting intravenous fluids. He recently spoke with VOA United Nations correspondent Margaret Besheer.

Please watch the video and share it with your friends today.   A shocking 17,000 children are forced to flee conflict and persecution every day. The international laws that were designed to protect them are routinely ignored. Children are indiscriminately targeted in conflicts such as the civil war in Syria. More than 50% of those affected by war are children, but less than 5% of humanitarian funding is spent protecting or educating them. THIS IS A SCANDAL. These children should have the same rights wherever they are - even though they've moved, their rights haven't. They must be protected from harm and exploitation, be able to go to school and access medical care. War Child's HELP campaign is calling on world leaders to urgently develop a global action plan which would promote the rights of children forced to flee, and ensure that: 1. No child forced to flee is out of school for more than one month - by mobilising $4bn for education in emergencies by 2020.* 2. Child protection funding requests in UN appeals are fully funded - with no project failing for lack of finance. 3. No child forced to flee is criminalised - by committing to eliminate child detention of displaced minors. 4. There are safe and legal routes for children forced to flee, and that countries resettle a fair share of unaccompanied minors and vulnerable children. Please sign our petition calling on the UK Government to stand up for the rights of children forced to flee https://warchild.campaignion.org/theresa-may-protect-rights-child-refugees

Hopwood took her case to court, arguing the schools affirmative action program violated her rights. Students discuss the pros and cons of affirmative action. Should we try to correct for inequality in educational backgrounds by taking race into consideration? Should we compensate for historical injustices such as slavery and segregation? Is the argument in favor of promoting diversity a valid one? How does it size up against the argument that a students efforts and achievements should carry more weight than factors that are out of his or her control and therefore arbitrary? When a universitys stated mission is to increase diversity, is it a violation of rights to deny a white person admission? PART TWO: WHATS THE PURPOSE? Sandel introduces Aristotle and his theory of justice. Aristotle disagrees with Rawls and Kant. He believes that justice is about giving people their due, what they deserve. When considering matters of distribution, Aristotle argues one must consider the goal, the end, the purpose of what is being distributed. The best flutes, for example, should go to the best flute players. And the highest political offices should go to those with the best judgment and the greatest civic virtue. For Aristotle, justice is a matter of fitting a persons virtues with an appropriate role.

You arrested him and charged him with helping two bloggers who were exposing the wrongdoings of judges and social workers. You have put him at risk as an attempt was made on his life for being GAY. You have locked him in solitary confinement, denying him his family visit or phone calls. You have humiliated him and emotionally mentally and physically tortured him. Your Judge Abraham Heiman of the Tel Aviv District Court has refused to honour domestic law, Supreme Court principles, International Law and UN treaties on fair treatment. Your Judge refuses to consider bail or house arrest. You denied the human rights lawyer his evidence, and made him PAY to get it. You have denied him dignity and innocence before guilt. You have denied his probono clients any representation who are left in despair and losing their hearings. Many of whom are foreign nationals trapped in Israel and starving, many of whom are American. You have denied him to help american children who need his support in juvenile and welfare cases. We demand that your Judge Heiman gives him bail, and not commit to his word that he will decide in September after his own summer holiday. Innocence before guilt is a democratic way. This is a blight on Israel's reputation of an honest judiciary and democracy. Release Zvi Zer to the safety of his family and allow him access to his evidence in order to defend himself. This is an outrageous abuse of human rights, and a shock to the American people.
