Human Rights Update April 20-25

Miriam, human rights defender, 1947-2012

Mexico again figures in human rights violations this week.  Please act on this case of persecution of human rights defenders.

The International Labor Rights Forum calls our attention to the exploitation of force labor in Uzbekistan by the Nike Corporation. Please join the protest and call upon Nike to end this nefarious practice. If the form letter comes up with my address, just click on the "not" button and put in your own.

Amnesty has an ongoing campaign to help people maintain control of their bodies and their right to make their own decisions about reproduction and sex.   Please support this campaign.
