To adequately respond to the ongoing crisis of democracy, we must support care and protection strategies for activists.

January 21, 2021 - Last year exposed the structural flaws of the multiple systems that hold our societies together. We witnessed broken health systems, crumbling democracies, increased repression, attacks on human rights defenders, the criminalization of movements and the pervasive violence that continues to proliferate across the globe.

As we enter 2021, we honor the lives of essential workers and health workers – as well as the many activists on the frontlines of movements defending land rights, natural resources, the right to have an abortion, workers’ rights, freedom of expression, sexual rights and gender expression, and many others.

Извор: WUNRN – 14.02.2021

02, 2021 - For many rights holders, victims and activists, the UN Human Rights Council provides the last or only opportunity to get international attention and support for their vital work towards a world that’s more fair, equal and sustainable. We need the Council to continue being credible, effective and accessible to everyone. This is only possible if States demonstrate leadership, take principled action, ensure that Council members live up to their responsibilities and expectations, and fully cooperate with the Council’s mechanisms.


EU - Need to Reinvent to Win Fight Against Poverty - UN SR Extreme Poverty

Извор: WUNRN – 05.02.2021

BRUSSELS (29 January 2021) – The European Union must boldly rethink its socio-economic governance if it is to live up to its commitment to eradicate poverty, the UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights said at the end of an official visit to the EU’s institutions on Friday.

“While the EU has made recent progress in the eradication of poverty, it should not fall into complacency,” saidOlivier De Schutter. “Its own commitment to lift 20 million people out of poverty by 2020 was largely missed. Since the EU has experienced steady economic and employment growth until very recently, the only explanation for this failure is that the benefits have not been evenly distributed. This is a defeat for social rights.”
