奧巴馬宣布縮短曼寧的刑期
 
前美國總統奧巴於日前(1月17日)宣布縮短曼寧(Chelsea Manning)的刑期。自從發表了指出美國軍方可能犯下國際法與違反人權法的資訊後,曼寧便被判處35年有期徒刑。美國分會秘書長Margaret Huang表示:「為曼寧減刑雖然姍姍來遲,但是正確的。她因揭發了美國政府嚴重的侵權行為而成為階下囚,但政府侵權的行為卻完全卻完全沒有受到查核。」

國際特赦組織同時呼籲針對洩密者/「吹哨人」(Whistleblowers)洩漏的資訊進行全面調查,並加強保護措施: http://amst.hk/whistleblower
 
Commutation for Chelsea Manning

We Demand Full Investigation into Information Exposed and Stronger Protections for Whistleblowers.

Former U.S. President Obama commuted the sentence of Chelsea Manning on 17 Jan. “President Obama was right to commute her sentence, but it is long overdue. It is unconscionable that she languished in prison for years while those allegedly implicated by the information she revealed still haven’t been brought to justice,” said Margaret Huang, executive director of Amnesty International USA.

ART EXHIBITION - CARNIVAL

Amnesty International Hong Kong has announced its upcoming exhibition, entitled <Carnival> which is to be held in KONG Art Space, Hong Kong’s first privately-owned contemporary art museum from 16-26 February 2017. The exhibition seeks to promote freedom of expression through a series of art activities including performances, education programmes, an art auction and charity dinners.

Education has long been close to the heart of AIHK’s work. <Carnival> serves as a platform for artists to incorporate educational elements into their artistic endeavors, with the aim to introduce the public to the world of human rights through an artistic lens. There are 15 workshops in different forms, including photography, yoga, dance, poetry, movie, music and handicrafts. Our artists and guest speakers hope to adopt a variety of methods through which participants can explore the relationship between human rights, the arts and education.

All events are free of charge. Spaces are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, please go to https://www.ticketflap.com/amnesty-carnival.

教師守則應體現人權

最近,我們就《香港教育專業守則及實務指引》諮詢稿向教育人員專業操守議會提交意見書。雖然教師肩負人權教育的重任,但是教師守則諮詢稿人權元素不足,部分條文定義廣泛,過份限制教師的表達自由和私隱權,譬如範圍涵蓋個人臉書和Whatsapp等。

我們建議操守議會加強守則的人權元素,譬如加入國際人權公約訂明的教育目的及兒童權利四大原則,在維持教育專業形象之餘,亦尊重教師人權。

The Professional Code for Teachers should embody human rights 

Recently we filed a Chinese submission to the Council on Professional Conduct in Education on "Code for the Education Profession of Hong Kong cum Practical Guidelines". Although teachers play a critical role in human rights education, the consultation draft does not pay sufficient regards to human rights. Some of the provisions are vague and may limit freedom of expression and privacy of teachers in an excessive manner. For example, the scope of the code extends to private facebook and Whatsapp communication etc. We urge the Council to strengthen human rights elements in the Code by incorporating the aims of education enshrined by the international human rights treaties as well as 4 principles of the rights of the child. In addition to maintaining the image of the profession, the rights of teachers shall be respected.
