|Miriam, human rights defender, 1947-2012|
We usually focus on human rights violations in this blog, but this week Guy brought to our attention the horrible abuse of animals in Nepal. We call upon you to click on the links and take action on behalf of the voiceless creature exploited to death in the brick industry in Nepal.

THE GARMENT INDUSTRY AS A KILLER
The death toll in the Bangladesh garment factory collapse is spiraling higher. It is time to put some accountability into the supply chain and for the big companies who have been waxing fat on the blood and sweat of Third World workers to take some serious steps to fix what is obviously broken. Please sign the AVAAZ petition and make noise on your social networks.
ABUSES IN SRI LANKA
Please take action on behalf of victims of human rights abuses in Sri Lanka. A human rights defender is under threats. Also, Guy informs us that a man has been held without trial since 2007 on suspicion of being a Tamil Tiger. Please act for justice for Mano and others held without trial.
