2017年成功推動變革的12件事
12 ways your support means Amnesty works
自1961年以來,國際特赦組織一直走在捍衛人權的最前線,我們隨時隨地回應本地以至環球的緊急行動之餘,更時刻關懷人權狀況如何影響社會未來。因為您的行動和決心,我們才可以持續推展人權工作。2017年上半年,在我們的共同努力下,已成功推動以下改變:

Since 1961, Amnesty International has been fighting for human rights. Through our detailed research and determined campaigning, we help fighting abuses of human rights worldwide. We bring torturers to justice, change oppressive laws, and free people who were jailed just for voicing their opinion. It is your determination and action that help us through this challenging journey. Thanks for your effort and contributions, here are some of the achievements we have made in 2017 so far:

洩密美軍曼寧獲釋

曾擔任美國情報分析軍官的曼寧,知悉美軍在伊拉克侵犯人權的狀況,決定將這些機密文件公諸於世,結果被判囚35年。2015年,國際特赦組織發動聯署,爭取曼寧獲釋,全球超過25萬人參加。於2016年美國前總統奧巴馬卸任前幾個月,即曼寧被捕入獄七年後,曼寧終於獲政府特赦,提早出獄。

在一封曼寧親自寫給國際特赦組織的信中,她說:「我支持你們的工作,保護那些無法獲得正義、自由、真相和尊嚴的人們。對我來說,政府的透明度是確保和保障所有人民獲得自由和尊嚴的基本前提。」

Whistleblower Chelsea Manning freed

Manning was jailed for exposing classified information, including those of possible war crimes committed by the US military. More than a quarter of a million people wrote for her release as part of Amnesty’s flagship Write for Rights letter-writing campaign in 2015. She walked free on 17 May, after her 35-year prison sentence was cut short by the outgoing US President Barack Obama in January.

In a letter Chelsea penned to Amnesty at the time, she wrote: “I support the work you do in protecting people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied. It seems to me that transparency in government is a fundamental prerequisite to ensuring and protecting the freedom and dignity of all people.”

企業回應棕櫚種植園中的人權侵害

國際特赦組織2016年底發佈《棕櫚油業的驚人醜聞:知名品牌背後的勞工侵權行徑》,揭露全球最大的棕櫚油生產商豐益國際(Wilmar)在印尼棕櫚種植園種種侵犯勞工權利的行為。
豐益國際最終於今年4月發表為期12個月
的執行方案,以改善我們在報告中所揭露
的種種侵犯人權的行為。

Companies respond to palm oil abuses

Following our report The great palm oil scandal: Labour abuses behind big brand names,  on abuses on palm oil plantations in Indonesia, Wilmar, the world’s biggest palm oil trader, shared their 12-month action plan to address the abuses we exposed in our report.

科技大廠接受鈷礦請願

鈷是不少電子產品的原材料。雖然各大電子產品生產商均堅稱未有僱用童工開採鈷,但國際特赦組織早前就剛果採鈷的狀況發表調查報告《我們的死因:剛果民主共和國在國際貿易鈷礦中違反人權的問題》中,就發現這些鈷礦場中有不少童工。世界各地的人不斷寫信、聯署,希望有關企業正視問題。其中,三星承諾將會調查國際特赦組織所指責的問題,並發布調查結果。

Tech giants listen to cobalt complaints

A lot of people demanded that tech giants to check whether their phones contained child labour through writing letters, tweeting, signing petitions and taking part in public protests. In the report This is what we die for: Human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of the Congo power the global trade in cobalt published by Amnesty International, the problem of child labour in cobalt mine was revealed. Samsung promised to investigate Amnesty’s allegations and to publish a report on its findings.

緊急行動 URGENT ACTION

土耳其分會主席及總幹事  仍被當局囚禁
 
近日,國際特赦組織土耳其分會總幹事Idil Eser與9位人權捍衛者同場遭土耳其當局以參與「恐怖組織」的莫須有罪名被捕;在12日後,即7月18日的預審中,4人可保釋外出,但Idil與另外5人遭還押候審,仍然身陷囹圄。

而我們的土耳其分會主席Taner Kiliç遭當局無理地以「恐怖組織成員」的罪名被捕至今,仍然在囚候審。

捍衛人權無罪!和平進行人權倡議、要求各國政府履行國際公約,乃國際特赦組織的宗旨。為人權奮鬥的行動,不應被污衊,更不能被任何政權以「恐怖主義」之名噤聲。

請繼續支持我們的工作,亦請各位尚未參與聯署行動的支持者,到 https://act.amnesty.org.hk 參與行動,要求土耳其政府立即無條件釋放Idil Eser及Taner Kiliç。

Our Turkish Director and Chair are still behind the bars
 
The remanding of six human rights defenders in pre-trial custody is an appalling affront to justice and a new low in Turkey's post-coup crackdown, said Amnesty International.

Our Turkey's Director, Idil Eser who was among those remanded in custody after a pre-trial. Four of the ten workshop participants were released on bail but are still under investigation. All ten are suspected of "committing crime in the name of a terrorist organization without being a member".

The six who were remanded in custody join Amnesty International Turkey's Chair, Taner Kiliç, behind bars.

Standing up for human rights is not a crime! Our mission to urge governments in the world to fulfill their human rights obligations through peaceful means should not be trolled and should never be silenced under the banner of "counter terrorism".

Please continue to support our work. Should you have not joined our action to demand immediate and unconditional release of Idil Eser and Taner Kiliç, please do so at https://act.amnesty.org.hk/?lang=en

Amnesty International Hong Kong has been organizing the Human Rights Documentary Film Festival since 2011. The Festival is the first-ever film festival featuring human rights documentaries in Hong Kong. The Festival aims to provide a lens for the audiences to learn more about the human rights conditions worldwide. This year, the theme of the Festival is "Fight for Human Rights", which introduces stories of various human rights defenders, with a goal to nurture a deep understanding on human rights issues. Audiences can also comprehend the strategies which people in other places deployed to defend human rights.

This year the Festival continues to expand the accessibility services for people with disabilities. Most film screenings provide accessible captions, more screenings and  post-screening discussion sessions. They are provided with audio description and sign interpretation respectively.

This year the Festival will be officially launched on 22 September. Tickets will be available for sale on 8 August. Stay tuned!
