Update January 3

Miriam, 1947-2012

It would seem that during the holiday season human rights activists and organization take time off as well. We have only one call this week, a request from Archbishop Desmond Tutu

 to join the Nobel Laureates' petition to the Chinese government to release Liu Xiaobo and his wife Liu Xia. I quote Archbishop Tutu:
 Liu Xiaobo is a prominent Chinese intellectual, democracy activist, and the world’s only imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. As a fellow Nobel laureate, I am asking you to stand with me and more than 134 other Nobel Laureates in demanding Chinese leader Xi Jinping release Liu Xiaobo and his wife Liu Xia, who is under house arrest.
 Please sign on

 Beyond that, all seems quite on the human rights web, but we all know that there will be much more coming. In the meantime, let us join the complacent XKCD  fellow.

Have a nice year.
