AI Madison Group #139 Weekly Update - July 24, 2015

Greetings Everyone!
     As I was paging through the internet this morning, I noticed that human rights stories continue to dominate the headlines. Journalists and lawyers are imprisoned. Demonstrations continue to be held for Raif Badaw, blogger and father. Lethal force continues to be used abroad and in the US by the military and police. Sexual violence and slavery flourish. Racial tension is heightened. So many stories.
     In our Weekly Update we share the links that our members send to us. But unlike the passive reading of internet stories, we can do something. Our members send us links to actions that we can take right now. Thanks to our members, we have online petitions, written urgent actions, calls, and other actions that we use to show our solidarity and perhaps change a life. Thanks to our members, we continue to be informed through our news links and videos. Thanks to our members, events are shared. And, thanks to you... this is all possible.
     Please send us your suggestions for links to Azam at and we will continue to spread the word and, hopefully with you, change our world.
