Fuelled by UK weaponry, coalition forces have been destroying human lives, homes and hospitals in Yemen for over a year now, largely unnoticed by the rest of the world. Tell the Prime Minister to investigate immediately and stop selling arms to the Saudi Arabia-led coalition – it’s illegal, immoral and inhumane.
Eight years. That's how long 27-year-old Belén will serve as a criminal in prison. She suffered a miscarriage in hospital and has been detained ever since. Belén has been treated appallingly. Call on Argentina to free Belén and overturn archaic laws that punish women for suffering miscarriages.
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 Human Rights Act protects the fundamental rights we all have as human beings, and allows us to challenge authorities if they violate them.
Don’t let universal freedoms turn into privileges for a chosen few. Call on Justice Secretary Michael Gove to save the Human Rights Act.
