Human Rights Action Update August 16-22

Miriam, human rights defender, 1947-2012

We are now told of a massacre by gas in Syria. Women are being used there, first as human shields and then

as rape victims. Join the call from AVAAZ to the leaders of the US and Russia to stop the stalling and to pressure the sides to negotiate and stop the senseless slaughter.

People are "disappearing" at the hands of various forces, including the military. Please call upon the President to put a stop to this nefarious practice. Here is a template letter. Feel free to edit and personalize it.

 A human rights lawyer is being harassed and threatened with loss of his license. This is a trick to deprive victims of abuse of legal help.  Please protest this action. Again I offer a template letter.
