#Yemen: The outrageous attack on a funeral makes an international investigation into the country even more vital. “The UN Human Rights Council's inability to take decisive action by setting up an intl investigation is contributing to a climate of impunity, and violations continue to occur on a regular basis. Such outrageous attacks cannot be allowed to continue,” said UN Human Rights Chief Zeid. Learn more:

Mandela's words are our moral compass - for humanity, not inhumanity. Including for people on the move! You don’t have to like me to respect my rights. I don’t have to agree with you to uphold your rights. You don’t have to be like me, for me to protect your rights. Rights are not a system of endorsement or appreciation – they are not an award or a test result nor a beauty parade. Human rights are for the best and for the worst of us. For each of us – to the exclusion of none of us in the interests of all of us.

A must-read: Our new Global Human Rights Update, which addresses many of the country issues you have raised in the comments section on G+. This Update highlights our concern over this emerging pattern -> the growing refusal by an increasing number of Member States to grant us access – either to countries generally, or to specific regions. The Update discusses States that have granted us access, those that have not, or have yet to do so

I am sure that You there at +United Nations Human Rights​ have been following the American Elections quite closely and so I feel to say, as a concerned citizen of Planet Earth, (even if?, from way over here in New Zealand), that the new President elect Mr Donald J Trump needs to be watched very closely with his implementation of his over the top policies that are, by design.... Only geared towards his so called "saving money" by taking it from those that are in great need of it through the Obamacare Health scheme.... And likewisely with the building of the wall separating Mexico from the United States of America and then making the Mexicans pay for it?, is just another way for Donald J Trump to not only deceitfully aquire huge amounts of money from Mexico?, but also cause as much grief as possible to those who are caught up in the whole process. And his promise to deport all drug dealers and the like is only meant for those that are minor players in the so called game, so that he can then be best friends with all of the major drug cartel bosses at his own leisure. So I also thought to include +Buckingham Palace​ and +Windsor Castle​ in on this, My message to You here today and hope that You keep not only a close eye on the outworkings of the Donald Trump campaign, but also those of whom he appoints to positions of power. Plus, and in conclusion.... I really fear for those that are Migrants in America that are just trying to get away from the wars in their own land under the new Trump Administration as he only has disruption and aggravation on his mind that way to, and only as his whole electioneering campaign has shown.

Race-baiting bigots must be confronted, UN Human Rights Chief Zeid urged at the #UN4RefugeesMigrants Summit just now. The world has failed millions of migrants, but we can change this together. This speech is a must-read:

#Bulgaria: "They call them 'migrant hunters' or 'citizen protection' organizations." Unchecked atmosphere of anti-migrant discourse results in human rights abuses.
