<Amnesty International Hong Kong 2016 Annual Report>
Hong Kong’s human rights situation is rapidly deteriorating in 2016 : Causeway Bay Booksellers' disappearance, NPCSC's interpretation of the Basic Law, the CAT withdrawal claimant by government management officials....Amnesty International Hong Kong had been observing the local Human Rights situations and reviewed them in the 2016 Annual Report, which was officially released on 11 January. It aims to examine the existing inadequacies of human rights protection and urge the government to take action as soon as possible, as well as to raise public awareness on the human rights violations. Together we fight for our human rights.
Human Rights Magazine - Winter Issue is published! The latest issue of Human Rights Magazine features "The rights of persons with disabilities are human rights, not welfare". Apart from international human rights standards, the difficult situation of persons with disabilities in Somalia and Bulgaria is briefly introduced. We also interviewed lawmaker Fernando Cheung on the implementation of the rights of persons with disabilities in Hong Kong. To ensure information accessibility by persons with disabilities, we cooperate with "The Human Commons" for producing an easy-read leaflet.
The magazine will be distributed for free in upstairs bookstores, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, Hong Kong Professional Teachers' Union, Kubrick, the Hong Kong Council of Social Service and universities etc. By becoming our member or donor, you will receive a printed copy on a regular basis.
