‘I’m frightened’: the asylum seekers rounded up to be sent to Rwanda (www.theguardian.com)

Asylum seekers from Sudan, Eritrea and Afghanistan detained in government’s Operation Vector share their stories. When Helen arrived at Yarl’s Wood immigration removal centre, she was taken to her cell and handed some cleaning spray and wipes and told to use them before making up her bed. She had no idea why she had been...

: "As early as October 9 top Israeli officials declared that they intended to block the delivery of food, water, and electricity, which is essential for purifying water and cooking. Defense Minister Yoav Gallant’s words have become infamous: (...) The statement conveyed the view that has seemed to guide Israel’s approach throughout the conflict: that Gazans are collectively complicit for Hamas’s crimes on October 7.

Since then Israel has restricted the number of vehicles allowed to enter Gaza, reduced the number of entry points, and conducted time-consuming and onerous inspections; destroyed farms and greenhouses; limited the delivery of fuel needed for the transport of food and water within the enclave; killed more than two hundred Palestinian aid workers, many of them employees of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the principal aid provider in the blockaded territory before October 7; and persuaded many donors, including the United States, to stop funding UNRWA by claiming that a dozen of the agency’s 13,000 employees in Gaza were involved in the October 7 attack or have other connections to Hamas. (An investigation by former French foreign minister Catherine Colonna, released on April 22, concluded that Israel had provided no evidence to support its allegations and that UNRWA is “irreplaceable and indispensable.”) The air strikes on April 1 that destroyed all three vehicles in a World Central Kitchen convoy, killing six international aid workers and a Palestinian driver and translator, seemed a continuation of these policies. Israel’s explanation that this was the result of a “misidentification” has aroused skepticism. As a result, other humanitarian groups may be deterred from providing aid.

The cumulative effect of these measures is that many Palestinians—especially young children—are starving."

: "The former head of the Mossad, Israel’s foreign intelligence agency, allegedly threatened a chief prosecutor of the international criminal court in a series of secret meetings in which he tried to pressure her into abandoning a war crimes investigation, the Guardian can reveal.

Yossi Cohen’s covert contacts with the ICC’s then prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, took place in the years leading up to her decision to open a formal investigation into alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in occupied Palestinian territories.

That investigation, launched in 2021, culminated last week when Bensouda’s successor, Karim Khan, announced that he was seeking an arrest warrant for the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, over the country’s conduct in its war in Gaza.

The prosecutor’s decision to apply to the ICC’s pre-trial chamber for arrest warrants for Netanyahu and his defence minister, Yoav Gallant, alongside three Hamas leaders, is an outcome Israel’s military and political establishment has long feared."

Amnesty International was founded in London in 1961 by the lawyer Peter Benenson.

In what he called "The Forgotten Prisoners" and "An Appeal for Amnesty", which appeared on the front page of the British newspaper The Observer, Benenson wrote about two students who toasted to freedom in Portugal and four other people who had been jailed in other nations because of their beliefs.

You can choose to wait until you face a disability to see the worth in people with disabilities, or you can start acknowledging it now.

Disability doesn’t care about age, religion, gender, race etc.

The legal and social situation for LGBTQ couples in Japan led one lesbian couple to take the dramatic step of fleeing to Canada and applying for refugee status. Canada granted their request, issuing a damning verdict on the state of LGBTQ rights in Japan.

Israel distributed leaflets designating area 2371 as a ‘safe’ area and advised civilians to go there. They did this only to SLAUGHTER them.

Block 2371 was then targeted by an Israeli strike, burning over 50 Palestinians in Rafah.

Did you know that the employees with disabilities often have to go above and beyond to navigate and devise solutions for inaccessible environments?

This additional effort comes with significant mental health costs for these employees.

The burden leads to heightened daily stress levels.

Many people may take these basic necessities for granted, making it challenging for them to empathize with our experience of living in a world not designed for us.

We need to enshrine for everyone, otherwise they do not protect anyone.

One of the reasons for censorship in a country can be because other people's human rights are being violated.

People should read the transcript of @how recent presentation at .

It's about Human Rights, censorship and the gaslighting on the political stage that can happen during conflicts.

You can't hold rogue regimes to account if you allow censorship.
