We are out here at the Supreme Court to defend abortion rights for all people as the case that could effectively overturn Roe v Wade takes place inside. Abortion is a human right! ✊✊✊ @amnesty @amnestyusa

We are still in THIS pandemic. As the events of the last week have shown, this is far from over. Human rights violations continue to define the #COVID19 Strengthening global health law architecture is important, but holistically and as a reaffirmation of health as a human right.

Would a new "treaty" provide solutions to the greed and self-interest that has defined the #COVID19 response? Would it ensure a TRIPs waiver, which still eludes? Would it provide regulation of pharma industry? Would it protect human rights in pandemic response? 2/3

A bit perplexed with the hyperboles being used to express the passing of the #WHA res on development of a #PandemicTreaty Being called a landmark/watershed/groundbreaking moment. Is it really? Or is it a distraction from the fact that we continue to fail on #VaccineJustice? 1/3

ICYMI: @amnesty is calling for accountability after park rangers & police shot 6 villagers near Banhine Nat'l Park, Mozambique. @Peace_Parks must ensure that its operations respect the rights of local communities and comply with international standards
Six local villagers were shot by park rangers and police near #Mozambique's Banhine National Park on 3 November 2020. Over a year later, no one has been held accountable and there hasn’t been a proper investigation into this senseless shooting [1/4] amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2…

Paraguay is turning its back on its girls. While there is a legal framework to support survivors of sexual violence, in practice they face a chaotic system where authorities ignore their voices & force them to carry pregnancies resulting from rape to term. amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2…

Today’s historic verdict confirms for the first time in a courtroom that the acts of the Islamic State against the Yazidi religious community in northern Iraq amount to the crime of genocide. The process in Frankfurt is an important step. amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2…
