Baby Whitney and 9-year-old Harry are some of the latest victims of a growing brutal trend: they were abducted and murdered for their body parts, because they were born with albinism.
Thousands more people are at risk of being hunted for their bones and body parts, to be used in witchcraft. Call on the government to protect them.
There is a near-total ban on abortion in Northern Ireland, even in cases of rape, incest and fatal foetal abnormality. Women face life imprisonment for a health service freely provided on the NHS everywhere else in the UK. This Victorian-era law must be brought into the 21st century.
Imprisoned for investigative journalism, Khadija Ismayilova is an award-winning journalist who is serving seven years behind bars for investigating government corruption.
Khadija has endured years of harrassment and smear campaigns from the government, but she fearlessly speaks out. Use your freedom to defend Khadija's.
Fleeing war and persecution, people are forced to take grave risks, often in the hands of people smugglers – all in the hope of finding a safe place to be a family again. It doesn’t have to be this way. Tell the UK government to help refugees travel safely to be reunited with their families.
Iranian filmmaker Hossein Rajabian’s debut documentary has landed him with a six-year prison sentence. It's about women's right to divorce. He and two musicians were tortured into 'confessions' and convicted in a trial that lasted just three minutes. Tell Iran to drop the charges.
Allegations that Vodafone is giving GCHQ access to their networks for mass surveillance. Or that BT is facilitating drone strikes in Yemen. When UK companies are suspected of causing or contributing to human rights abuses, the government is refusing the investigate complaints against them. Sign the petition to make this change.
The release of a damning US report on CIA torture in 2014 revealed how they used waterboarding, mock executions, sleep deprivation, stress positions and other cruel and degrading treatment against detainees.
But we still don’t know how deeply the UK was involved. Demand the UK government investigates the truth.
