Miriam Makeba, South African singer and campaigner, has died. I see that there is a film called Sarafina that includes her music and shows the struggle against apartheid in the days before the release of Nelson Mandela. It is a film that I would like to see.

...People in Ukraine are facing a catastrophic human rights crisis. The Russian invasion has led to many civilian deaths and mass displacement. We're urging governments across Europe – including in the UK – to ensure anyone fleeing Ukraine is given protection without discrimination. Our crisis investigators are on the ground to document human rights abuses as they happen. Amnesty International UK's vital work depends on the generosity of our supporters to fund our ongoing fight for human rights. Your donation, however big or small, is valuable.
If you can, please chip in today to help put humanity first and protect human rights. Thank you.
