Photo: A woman holds her grandchild in Flint, Michigan (USA), where 6000-12000 children, mostly African-American, were exposed to high levels of lead in their drinking water. Children are arguably the most vulnerable to toxics and pollution. UN expert Baskut Tuncak urges States and businesses to prevent childhood exposure to toxics and pollution http://ow.ly/XxKm304qIyW

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 http://ow.ly/vowe3049Td3

Photo: A woman walks by an anti-Muslim ("Musulman") inscription written on the wall of a mosque. Populists and demagogues in Europe & US are fanning bigotry & hate. Speak out against xenophobia & racism. Speak for the rights of all. Say clearly: stop! Follow this link for our High Commissioner Zeid's statement: http://ow.ly/LLDK303UJDD

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. http://ow.ly/zfSJ304oiCk

#Bulgaria: "They call them 'migrant hunters' or 'citizen protection' organizations." Unchecked atmosphere of anti-migrant discourse results in human rights abuses. http://ow.ly/3OKx303WH3M

Photo: A mother holds her child, who has albinism. Who are the masterminds of attacks against persons with albinism in #Mozambique? "From cradle to grave, they are hunted & their body parts are wanted – everything from their heads to their toes, their hair, their nails and even their feces are collected," said UN expert Ikponwosa Ero.

Evil things, when chosen to be done, cause the initiator to take one more step down an evil path. When the choice to respect a life as our own is made, rarely is it anything but good a result. (Edit: I put the p in respect.)

In Kenya, conservation policies have resulted in alienation of indigenous peoples from their lands. This friction between conservation policies and indigenous communities is evident in the experiences of the Sengwer and Ogiek (pictured) peoples in Kenya. “We have been facing a lot of human rights violations, forceful evictions from our forest homes…and as a result we do not have a place where we can sit and say ‘This is our home’,” says Milka Chepkorir Kuto, herself a Sengwer.
