緊急行動 URGENT ACTION

立即要求土耳其當局釋放Idil
 
我們的總幹事區美寶作出的緊急呼籲:

上星期我的土耳其同事Idil Eser被當地政府拘捕。土耳其當局扣留她超過24小時,仍未有透露其行蹤,而我們亦未能得悉她能否與家人及代表律師會面。我們十分需要你為她作出聲援。

Idil只是為人權奮鬥
Idil與我一樣,是當地分會的總幹事。我與她的工作都很相似 - 與政治人物會面、會見傳媒、參加會議、與大家同行並一起捍衛每個人應有的權利。我們一起行動,令人權狀況得到改善。

但她的倡議工作比我更加危險
自從土耳其箝制言論自由後,當地人權捍衛者的工作變得十分兇險。包括Idil在內,已有過千名人士被捕。
現在,這位和藹並專注於人權倡議的總幹事,亦成為土耳其政權日漸高壓的受害人。另外,有9名人權捍衛者亦不幸地與Idil同場被捕,他們都只是進行人權工作。

土耳其政府必須釋放Idil、與她同場被捕的人及Taner
你可能知道,是次拘捕已經是當地一個月內針對國際特赦組織的第二次行動。6月6日,土耳其分會主席Taner Kiliç被當局畜意指為「恐怖主義組織」成員而被捕。
 

立即行動: 請你為我們的同事作出行動 - 要求土耳其當局立即釋放他們!

最後,Idil 及Taner每日的情況都可能有變,但我們會儘快向你報告最新消息。衷心感謝。
 


Please demand Idil is released immediately

Urgent update from Mabel Au, our Director:
Last week, my colleague Idil Eser was arrested in Turkey.  For over 24 hours the authorities wouldn't tell us where she was — and they didn't let her have access to a lawyer or her family. She urgently needs your help.
 
Idil has just been fighting for human rights
Idil does the same job as me: she is Director of Amnesty International in her country. In many ways, our days are the same – we meet with politicians, speak to the media, attend the same meetings, and work with people who are defending their rights. Together, we fight for human rights change.
 
But hers is a far more dangerous job than mine.
Since the crackdown on free speech in Turkey, human rights defenders like Idil have been at risk. Thousands have been arrested.
 
Now, this kind and dedicated woman has become the latest victim of her country's increasingly repressive regime. Sadly, she's not alone: 9 others were arrested alongside her. All of them were just doing their job to defend human rights.

Turkey must free Idil, all those detained with her and Taner
As some of you already know, this is the second time in a month that a colleague has been arrested in Turkey – Taner Kiliç, the Chairperson of Amnesty International Turkey, has been detained since 6 June, falsely accused of being a member of a "terrorist" organisation.
 

Act now: tell Turkey they must free Idil and all those detained with her.

It's a constantly changing situation but I will keep you updated. Thank you for your help.

Human Rights Magazine - Summer Issue is published!

The then Chief Executive had issued pre-action letters to media, commentators and legislative councillor. He even filed a claim before the court due to some allegedly defamatory statements made by a legislative councillor. Some worry that Hong Kong is becoming more Singapore-like in the way it governs. So what is defamation? What does the justified limitation on freedom of speech mean?

The latest issue of Human Rights Magazine features "defamation and freedom of speech". We went through international human rights standards and relevant cases in Asia. We also interviewed Anne Cheung, professor of the Faculty of Law, Hong Kong University and she briefly discussed case laws from the US and the UK as well as commented on Hong Kong's situation.

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.

活動預告 UPCOMING EVENTS
人權星期五 :台灣推動人權議題的經驗

日期:2017年7月21日 (星期五)
時間:下午7時30分至9時正

「廢除死刑」這個議題在台灣一直備受爭議;廢除死刑推動聯盟 (廢死聯盟) 於2003年成立,多年來透過不同的活動推動死刑議題,希望台灣最終可以成為沒有死刑的國家;然而,面對「殺人填命」的傳統思想,如何在社會開展有建設性的討論,將廢除死刑的議題帶進社會?

香港早於90年代已廢除死刑;然而,台灣推動具爭議的人權議題(如推動廢死議題)的過程,相當值得香港參考;因此,今次人權星期五,我們邀得廢除死刑推動聯盟執行長林欣怡以及國際特赦組織台灣分會理事札西慈仁作分享。

兩位在台灣為人權奮鬥多年 - 即使受到不少反對者攻擊,甚至收過死亡恐嚇,多年來仍堅持推動極具爭議的廢除死刑議題。他們將與我們分享在台灣推動如此具爭議的議題的經驗;亦歡迎參加者分享自己推動社會議題的經驗,與講者及其他參加者交流。
