Thanks again for all your help with Amnesty's work on Sri Lanka. If I can, I'd like to ask that you sign AI New Zealand's new petition for the disappeared Sri Lankan journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda (at bit.ly/2wpfHZe) and also AIUSA's new petitions on enforced disappearances in Sri Lanka. The English version is at bit.ly/2v4PwX2 and the French version is at bit.ly/2vEKhyp. Please encourage others to sign as well. Thanks a lot for any help you can give on these actions.

Thousands of overworked and underpaid children are responsible the jewelry that adorns the shelves of stores in the US.

The Rohingya, a stateless Muslim minority, have been victims of ethnic cleansing and brutal violence including torture, r**e, and murder, at the hands of the Myanmar military since August 2017. Over 647,000 have walked for days through jungles and mountains or dangerously voyaged across the Bay of Bengal to reach camps and assistance in Bangladesh. As more refugees arrive every day, there is an acute need for emergency shelters, clean water, health care, and other forms of aid. We will be donating all proceeds from the media blast to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. We hope you join us in helping the Rohingya refugees by liking this post and participating.

Burma: Rohingya Describe Military Atrocities

People didn't know about Rwanda until after thousands of people had already been killed. Call on your governments to put pressure on Burma to stop these despicable massacres before the issue goes too far.

Dream Act Toolkit 09/06/2017

Dream Act Toolkit

This afternoon, President Trump scheduled the repeal of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program for March of 2018. The repeal means that the 800,000 immigrants who arrived in the United States as children and became DACA-mented will be considered and treated by the federal government as undocumented. Dreamers contribute to our country as teachers, physicians, lawyers, and so many more professions. It is up to Congress at this point to create legislation to protect them, but it is up to all of us to tell Congress what we want. Call and tweet at Congresspeople of swing states here to let them know the importance of humane and effective immigration legislation: https://dreamacttoolkit.org

Liu Xiaobo, Chinese Dissident Who Won Nobel While Jailed, Dies at 61

This past Thursday, July 13, Nobel Peace laureate, democracy advocate, and prisoner of conscience Liu Xiaobo passed away after being denied medical care for cancer. Throughout his lifetime, Mr. Liu tirelessly wrote, spoke, and participated in movements in support of fundamental freedoms and the end of censorship. He helped save the lives of students in the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989 and supported Charter 08, a petition for increased liberties throughout his country. We mourn his loss and will continue to honor his quest for peace.

Liu Xiaobo, Chinese Dissident Who Won Nobel While Jailed, Dies at 61 Mr. Liu, who was convicted in 2009 of inciting subversion and sentenced to prison, was given medical parole recently to be treated for late-stage cancer.

Hey guys, Amnesty International is selling shirts this year! As almost all of the money we make throughout the course of the year goes directly to charities or groups to protect and promote human rights, we would really appreciate if you would all support Amnesty and allow for us to do more in the future by buying a shirt. These black long sleeve tshirts are $15 each, and you can order one of these (amazing) shirts through the Amnesty members waking around during lunch selling, or by messaging any of the Amnesty members. In addition, if you paid $15+ in the Media Blast hosted previously in the year by Amnesty, you will receive one of these shirts with no further payment.

In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti - a long-suffering nation still recovering from the destructive earthquake of 2010 and other recurring natural disasters. The 7.0 magnitude earthquake killed over 200,000 people and left the country’s infrastructure in shambles. 60,000 people are still living in the makeshift post-quake camps and many more are still homeless. Now, Haiti is coping with the recent devastation of the Category 4 hurricane. The Haitian people have lost loved ones, their homes, and their belongings. The death toll had already reached 877 people just three days following the hurricane. Almost 15,000 people have been displaced, 3,000 families affected, and 2,000 houses flooded. 1.4 million Haitians are in urgent need of food, clean water, shelter, medicine, and other assistance. The standing water from the flooding is of particular concern, considering the ongoing cholera outbreak that has killed more than 10,000 people already. More than 100,000 children have been unable to return to school because of the widespread wreckage. The UN reports that 90% of the country’s crops have been destroyed and much of its livestock lost - extremely debilitating to the already poorest nation in the Americas. Hope for Haiti is one organization that has launched relief efforts for the damage done by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti - focusing on Les Cayes, the southern port city most affected. We hope you join MHS Amnesty International’s social media blast dedicated towards the massive recovery efforts following this catastrophe for Haiti.

We hope to see you there!

For MHS Amnesty International's Fall Festival event, kids decorated hand cutouts and wrote something they want and something they need to survive. The goal was to promote awareness of basic necessities of life that are easily accessible in Montgomery but not everywhere around the world. Thank you to everyone who visited or volunteered at the booth!

Amnesty International's latest campaigns include supporting the acceptance of Syrian refugees in places like Australia and Europe and supporting the citizens of Kodaikanal, India, who are standing up against Unilever after experiencing the detrimental effects of mercury contamination.
