🚨Big news out the Hague: ICC prosecutor opens #Palestine investigation, bringing Israeli and Palestinian victims of serious crimes one step closer to obtaining a measure of justice that has for too long eluded them.

The evidence is overwhelming that Saudi Crown Prince #MBS approved #Khashoggi's heinous murder, & it was a mistake for @POTUS to not sanction MBS. But pressure is not going away & US has a lot more to do to support human rights in Saudi Arabia

My take in the @Newsweek on why this thuggish tactic has been escalating under Sisi's government, why it backfires, and why Western silence must end.

There have been nine UNSGs over the past 75 years, from all corners of the earth. But w/one thing in common—they’ve all been men. We are facing a crisis in women’s rights. UN ability to lead is undermined while gender equity is missing–from bottom to top.

The Myanmar junta has "charged Associated Press journalist Thein Zaw and five other members of the media with violating a public order law that could see them imprisoned for up to three years." Their "crime"? Covering the anti-coup protests.

The #Mediterranean cemetery and EU policies de facto condemning #migrants and asylum seekers to horrendous abuses in #Libya remain, arguably, the biggest stain in the EU's human rights record.

This cycle of suffering and death can, and should, be averted:

Our statement on the Justice in Policing Act, which the House will vote on this week. There are some positive provisions but overall it provides too much funding to law enforcement that could be better spent on investments in community. We continue to urge changes before passing.
