Thank you! 4.6 million actions for Write for Rights!

Amnesty supporters around the world outdid themselves in this Write for Rights 2016.  Together, you wrote an amazing number of 4,660,774 letters, emails, tweets and many more. Among those messages were words of support that made all the difference to the many whose rights we were writing for. Here are just a few of their personal thankyou notes to you: http://amst.hk/enw4r2016gdnews

Your words touched every on of us– and, yes – changed lives, too. Thank you!

「當我看見所有國際特赦組織收集來的信件,我不禁流下淚來。當我知道有這麼多人相信我、家父和家人時,我感到自己變得更加堅強。」— 菊爾‧土赫提 (Jewher Tohti),她的父親伊力哈木 (Ilham) 被關押於中國的監獄。

"It brought me to tears to see all the letters that Amnesty International had collected. It makes me feel stronger when I know there are so many people who trust me, my father, and my family." — Jewher Tohti, whose father Ilham remains in prison in China

「我並不孤單,因為這麼多來自全世界各國的人支持我,我非常感激。我希望你們能繼續支持、協助其他人,可以嗎?因為在秘魯各地,也還有許多女性,也好似我這個普通農婦一樣,正在遭受這種折磨及各種虐待,請聲援我們所有人。感謝你們所做的一切。」——秘魯的Máxima Acuña
當她還在等待一項關於她的土地佔用權的法院判決時,她持續受到警方攻擊
騷擾。今年2月我們拜訪麥希瑪時,總共交給她15萬封你們的聲援信。及後秘魯人權及司法部長也拜訪了她,並嚮應國際特赦組織希望政府確保她安全的呼籲。

"I am grateful that I am not alone. I have the support of so many people from all around the world, from many different countries. I hope you can keep on supporting, helping, and not just me. Will you? Because in different areas of Peru there are many humble peasant farmer women suffering from this kind of ill treatment, all kinds of abuse just like me. Support us all. Thank you for everything."
- Máxima Acuña of Peru, who has been repeatedly harassed by police and mining company personnel, awaits a court decision on her right to remain on the land she says is hers. We gave Máxima all 150,000 of your solidarity letters when we visited in February. The Peruvian Minister of Justice and Human Rights also visited her, later echoing Amnesty’s calls on the government to ensure Máxima’s safety.

人權星期五:為何我們需要檔案法?

在橫洲事件,政府透過「摸底」代替公開諮詢備受批評,而運輸及房屋局局長張炳良被要求公開摸底詳情時,以「沒有紀錄」為由拒絕;近日,一套有關六七暴動的紀錄片上映;導演指政府檔案處有關1967年的檔案,消失得不見影踪。
 
不少社運人士或記者尋求真相,為人權奮鬥之時,往往需要翻閱相關政策制訂或決策過程的檔案和記錄。許多地方已制訂檔案法,譬如日本、韓國和新加坡等,讓市民及傳媒更有效監察政府及公營機構運作,從而更有效確保市民權利得到保障;即使中國、澳門和台灣也有檔案法,但自詡為國際大都會的香港,仍是亞太區極少數未有訂立檔案法的地區。
 
檔案法對捍衛人權有多重要?香港距離制訂檔案法有幾遠?五月份人權星期五,我們邀請了前政府檔案處處長朱福強以及遠赴英國尋找香港檔案的本土研究社黃肇鴻一起討論。

日期:2017年5月26日 (五)
時間:晚上7時30分至9時
地點:銅鑼灣教協@銅鑼灣堅拿道西15號永德大廈閣樓
講者:朱福強(前政府檔案處處長)
   黃肇鴻 (本土研究社)
