We love starting the week with good news!

The Australian government has announced a $4 million funding boost for the Utopia homelands in the Northern Territory --> http://bit.ly/147mG0A

It's great to see the government listening to the community. Thank you to the tens of thousands of Australians who took action in support of traditional Aboriginal homelands.

Asylum seekers who arrive on our shores are desperate to protect their families and escape violence and persecution. Many are then locked away in detention centres for months or even years, with little hope of release.

You can help restore hope by joining the 'Freedom from fences' appeal to fund our Refugee casework program in 2013 --> http://bit.ly/WWmdNE

It is only with the generous support from our community that we are able continue to help hundreds of vulnerable asylum seekers each year.

We're outraged by the use of drones for extrajudicial killings across the world. 

While drones may be the future of war, we think the morality of their deployment is far from certain >> http://bit.ly/UwuI3b

What do you think? Are drone strikes moral? Is their use to kill ever justified? COMMENT below and let us know.

What if you could help people in need by climbing a towering African mountain, running few miles here in Oz, or even a marathon in London? 

Well now you can as an Amnesty supporter - and we invite you to join us in 2013 >> http://bit.ly/WxYODw

WOW -- We launched a campaign on Tuesday calling to save Siti Zainab from beheading in Saudi Arabia. Over *11,000* people have already spoken out! Every action helps show Saudi authorities that this brutality is not acceptable anywhere. Have you taken action yet? http://bit.ly/Xys6NM

Siti Zainab is a domestic worker from Indonesia and a mother of two. Police suspect she was mentally ill when she 'confessed' to murdering her employer -- but her confession was enough to seal her death sentence. 

Many foreign workers in Saudi Arabia suffer at the hands of their employers. Together we can speak for Siti Zainab and for the thousands of women like her: http://bit.ly/Xys6NM
