 埃及: 釋放人權律師Mahienour el-Massry!

Mahienour 、Moataseem和幾名行動者於2016年中參與一個和平集會,及後於2017年11月被捕,2017年底因「參與非法集會」及「暴力行為」罪名而被判2年監禁。日前,埃及上訴庭判定二人無罪。

「雖然這是一個罕見的正義時刻,卻為成千上萬因當局對公民社會持續鎮壓而被無故地拘押的行動者,帶來一絲希望。」

「埃及當局必須立即停止任意拘留任何人、停止殘酷鎮壓。我們也期待與Mahienour一起獲判無罪、捍衛勞工權益的和平行動者Moataseem獲釋。」

 Egypt: Release of human rights lawyer Mahienour el-Massry 

Maheinour participated in a peaceful protest with Moataseem and several activists in June 2016.

On 18 Nov2017, Mahienour was being held at the detention until a verdict was reached in December. On 30 Dec 2017, Mahienour and Moataseem were sentenced to two years in prison for “participating in an unauthorized protest” and “show of force”. On 13 Jan 2018, the Court of Appeals acquitted Mahienour and Moataseem of all charges.

"Rare moments of justice like this offer a glimmer of hope to thousands of other people who are detained in Egypt without legitimate reason as part of the authorities’ ongoing crackdown on activists and civil society."

“The Egyptian authorities must now stop arbitrarily detaining people and halt the brutal crackdown on human rights. We also look forward to the release of Moataseem Medhat who was acquitted in the same case alongside Mahienour."

《人權》雜誌冬季號出爐!

近年,多位社運人士因參與和平集會而被當局以「非法集結罪」起訴,這些事件再次引起社會對《公安條例》的爭議。然而,香港人的和平集會權利是否得到充分保障?我們參與和平集會捍衛人權時,有甚麼權利及限制?
 
最新一期《人權》雜誌以 「人權捍衛者與和平集會的權利與限制」為題,介紹「人權捍衛者」的概念、「BRAVE」(人權奮鬥)倡議運動,並邀請馬來西亞的人權捍衛者葉瑞生分享馬來西亞公民運動的狀況及策略,從而回顧香港的和平集會狀況。

 Human Rights Magazine - Winter Issue is published! 
 
Recently, a number of activists were prosecuted for the offence of “taking part in an unauthorised assembly”. These incidents have raised public awareness in the controversy of the Public Order Ordinance. Is freedom of peaceful assembly fully protected under the statutory law in Hong Kong? What rights and restrictions do we have in a peaceful assembly?
 
The latest issue of Human Rights Magazine focuses on “human rights defenders and the restrictions to the Rights of Freedom of Assembly". It discusses the concept of “Human Rights Defenders” and the recent BRAVE campaign launched by the Amnesty International. We also invited Yap Swee Seng, Malaysian Human Rights defender to share the human rights condition and strategies of the social movement in Malaysia, so as to review the freedom of assembly condition in Hong Kong.
 
You can now get a free copy of the latest winter issue in hotspots like upstairs bookstores, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, HKPTU, Kubrick, HKCSS and universities. WHATSMORE: You will receive a printed copy on a regular basis if you become our member or donor. Do come and join us!
