寫信馬拉松個案 - 烏茲別克的Erkin Musaev 獲釋!
烏茲別克前公職人員及曾任聯合國職員的Erkin Musaev, 於2007年被烏茲別克當局屈打成招,其後遭到不公平審訊而被判監禁20年。


經歷11年的監禁,Erkin 終在8月中獲釋。他於給國際特赦組織所有會員及支持者的信中,感謝你的努力讓他提早獲釋:「我衷心感謝國際特赦組織的行動者,和所有支持我和我家人渡過困境的人。我的獲釋是場勝利,而你的行動是無價的。」

Write for Rights Case - Uzbekistani Erkin Musaev is now free!

Erkin Musaev, a former Uzbekistani government official and UN employee, who was tortured and then wrongly sentenced to 20 years in jail in 2007 after a series of grossly unfair trials.

Outraged at the injustice of his detention without a fair trial thousands of Amnesty International supporters took action for Erkin Musaev, demanding his release as a part of Write for Rights 2014.

Good News: Erkin was released in mid-August. He has written a letter offering his personal thanks to Amnesty International activists who spoke up for him:

"I want to express my great gratitude to all Amnesty International activists, as well as to all those who supported me and my family in a difficult time. My release is a great victory indeed, and your contribution to it is invaluable."

《單車女俠洛杉磯》追訪來自東洛杉磯的拉丁裔女子單車隊Ovarian Psycos。隊長Xela既是單親媽媽亦是hip-hop歌手兼詩人,隊員包括24歲街頭畫家Andi以及薩爾瓦多難民二代Evelyn。因種族與性別歧視,她們面對恐懼和威脅,但仍然無懼踩車爭取性別平等與公義。

Ovarian Psycos is a bicycle team formed by a group of Latina women in Eastern Los Angeles. This group of women has been defending women's rights with their wheels. Xela, the team captain of the group is a single mom, a hip-hop singer and poet. Team members include Andi, a 24-year-old street artist, and Evelyn, a descendant of refugees from El Salvador. Facing racial and sexual discrimination, as well as unimaginable threats in their neighborhood, this group of women shows their fearlessness when fighting for justice and gender equality on bicycles.
音樂是非洲國家馬里最重要的文化。《唔俾我唱歌 我同你死過》追蹤自2012年伊斯蘭極端組織控制了馬里北部後的光景 - 電台以至音樂樂器被拆除,有音樂人被虐待至死。為了保留馬里的音樂傳統,男子四人組合冒死唱出藍調金牌女歌手,為流亡到國外的難民同鄉舉辦一場演唱會,結他手親述家人被殺經過。

Music, one of the most important cultures in Mali, disappeared overnight in 2012 when Islamic extremists groups rose up to capture its Northern part. In this light, broadcasting stations and music instruments were dismantled, while some musicians were tortured to death. To preserve the Malian musical traditions, a boyband consisting of four members risked their lives to sing the Blues; a famous female Malian singer who fled to another country conducted a concert with help from her fellow refugees; a guitarist's family was killed under the enforcement of the draconian law.

The Apology follows the personal journeys of three former "comfort women" who were among the 200,000 girls and young women kidnapped and forced into military sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. Some 70 years after their imprisonment in "comfort stations", the three grandmothers from South Korea, China, and the Philippines face their twilight years in fading health. After decades of living in silence and shame about their past, ensure that this horrific chapter of history is not forgotten, they know that time is running out to give a first-hand account of the truth in the documentary.
