好消息:高瑜獲准保外就醫 

北京市高級人民法院,於11月26日處理高瑜案上訴。高瑜被判減刑兩年,改判有期徒刑5年。同日,她的保外就醫申請獲得當局接納。
 
高瑜因為將俗稱「七不講」的中國《關於當前意識形態領域情況的通報》提供給境外傳媒《明鏡》刊登,於今年4月被控以「為境外非法提供國家機密罪」成立,判監7年。
 
我們感謝曾經聲援高瑜的您。
我們亦會繼續監察狀況,要求中國政府終止對高瑜的人身限制,及讓她尋求適切的醫療協助。
 
GOOD NEWS: Gao Yu is allowed to serve jail terms outside prison

  
The People's Court in Beijing had her sentence reduced from 7 to 5 years following an appeal hearing on 26 November. Gao Yu’s application to serve jail terms outside prison was approved on the same day.
 
Gao Yu is a veteran journalist in China. She revealed an internal document of the ruling Communist Party to a foreign media. She was then convicted of “disclosing state secrets".
 
We thank everyone who has shown your support to Gao Yu.
Amnesty International continues to call for the Chinese authorities to end all restrictions on her and ensure she receives proper medical treatment.

很多人會質疑,寫一封信,如何可以改變生命?現在,就由他們告訴您,您是如何改變了他們的一生。
Many people would doubt that how can a letter save a life. Now, let's hear what they said:

一年前,挪威跨性別人士John Jenette 從來沒有想過,在跨性別人士在爭取法律認同性別更改的漫長抗爭道路,會得到國際特赦全球會員及支持者的重視。她說:「我收到排山倒海的信件,全都是給予我的支持和鼓勵,您的一封信或者一個簽名,都大大改變我的日常生活,令全球跨性別人士看見希望。
John Jeanette is a transgender woman in Norway who can’t be legally recognised as ‘female’ without having surgery which will leave her sterile. “Less than a year ago, I wouldn’t have even dreamed of getting such enormous attention for transpeople’s suffering around the issue of legal gender recognition. Getting this massive, wonderful and warm support from people worldwide really makes a great difference to my daily life, and hopefully to transpeople all over the world."


一年前,尼日利亞青年Moses Akatugba被警方扣留3個月內施行酷刑及屈打成招,承認自己從未犯過的罪名,更被判處環首死刑。他在本年中獲得特赦後,向我們分享寫信的力量:「我真的很感動。感謝國際特赦組織及所有行動者。有你們的支持,我才能克服這個難關,你們是我的英雄。你們為我所做的行動,並沒有白費。
我向你們保證,我會成為捍衛人權的行動者,為捍衛他人的權利而奮鬥。」
A year ago, Moses Akatugba was arrested under a crime a crime he says he had never committed. He confessed after severe torture during the three-month detention. He was subjected to an unfair trial and was sentenced to death by hanging. Here is his message after his pardon,"I am overwhelmed. Amnesty International members and activists are my heroes. I want to assure them that this great effort they have shown to me will not be in vain. I promise to be a human rights activist – to fight for others.”

Human Rights Blog

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when we talk about human rights? It might be gender and sexual rights or freedom of speech. However, there are still many human rights issues that we need to stop ignoring. In order to raise public's awareness towards different human rights issues, we set up a blog few months ago on our website and other online media platforms to talk about human rights with examples in everyday life.
