《人權》雜誌秋季號出爐!

最新一期《人權》雜誌,以「近在咫尺的死刑」為題。封面分別是絞刑繩和針筒,但你輕輕一拉,就會粉碎上述兩種死刑工具,寓意我們每個人也可坐言起行,為全球廢除死刑運動出一分力。40年來,國際特赦組織致力推動全球廢除死刑。至於香港,由於1993年已廢除死刑,許多人也會認為死刑和自己無關。但原來許多港人旅遊熱點仍有死刑,亦有港人在中國和外地被判死刑。

到底死刑是否符合人權?最新一期《人權》雜誌以「近在咫尺的死刑」為題,從人權角度探討死刑議題,並邀請了馬來西亞人權律師兼亞洲反死刑網絡主席饒兆穎分享對亞洲死刑情況的看法,並討論香港於推動亞洲廢除死刑的角色。

雜誌將於樓上書店、兆基創意書院、教協、Kubrick、社聯及大專院校等地點免費派發。成為我們的會員或捐款者,可定期收到《人權》雜誌印刷本乙本。

 Human Rights Magazine - Autumn Issue is published!

The latest issue of Human Rights Magazine features "The Death Penalty around us". By pulling the cover page gently, you can break the hanging noose or lethal injection syringe. It symbolizes that every one of us can take initiative and action for the global campaign against the death penalty. Amnesty International has been dedicated to campaigning globally against the death penalty for 40 years. Since the abolition of the death penalty in Hong Kong since 1993, many Hongkongers have regarded it as an irrelevant issue. But the death penalty remains in Hongkongers' most popular holiday destinations. A number of Hongkongers are sentenced to death in China and overseas. 

Does the death penalty infringe human rights? The latest issue of Human Rights Magazine features "The Death Penalty around us", which discussed the death penalty issues from a human rights perspective. We also interviewed Ngeow Chow Ying, a human rights lawyer in Malaysia as well as the Chairperson of the Anti-Death Penalty Asia Network, on the existence of death penalty in Asia. She also discussed the role of Hong Kong in promoting the abolition of the death penalty.

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.

Latest Leaflet: the Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) System and Gender Equality

In recent years, there has been criticism that girls outnumber boys at university and band 1 secondary school due to the changes in the SSPA system, namely removal of gender-based features, in response to the court judgment in 2001.

Why did the judge rule the gender-based features of the SSPA system discriminatory and contrary to the Sex Discrimination Ordinance? Check out the latest education leaflet on this case to find out.
