Care systems often fail to recognize everybody's capacity to act on their own behalf--most obviously the people who receive care, but also people, mostly women, who provide support. Policymakers and other stakeholders worldwide need to have close consultations with organizations of people with disabilities and include them in ongoing discussions around designing and implementing support and care systems. These core obligations of international disability law include the right of people with disabilities to make choices about their lives. The Buenos Aires Commitment is a great start to advancing the autonomy and rights of people with disabilities. As such, it provides key guidance for the design of the national support and care systems underway in many countries in the Americas.
© 2022 PrivateOn 18 December 2022, the Men’s World Cup football final will be held at Qatar’s Lusail Stadium. 18 December is also International Migrants Day, a day set aside to honour migrant workers for their contributions and sacrifice. Over the past 12 years, millions of migrant workers have toiled to make the 2022 World Cup possible, building key infrastructure, including the stadiums in Qatar. While a positive initiative, its impact is inadequate considering that it does not cover most migrant workers who helped build and service the necessary infrastructure for the World Cup. This is why Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and other organisations have called on FIFA and Qatari authorities to remedy past and ongoing abuses during World Cup preparations, including deaths, injuries and wage theft.26 days ago Human Rights Watch
Human Rights Watch has not been able to independently confirm these numbers. Human Rights Watch received accounts from protesters and witnesses that some protesters threw stones, and saw unverified photos that show a handful of protesters with knives, but found no evidence that protesters carried guns. A member of The Transformers (Les Transformateurs), the main opposition party, told Human Rights Watch, “We were not armed. That’s just for our party, not the civil society people or human rights activists, so many others have been arrested too. The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights stated that it had received reports that over 500 people were arrested.1 month ago Human Rights Watch
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Facing significant gaps in the use of Magnitsky sanctions by the U.S., Canada, UK, and EU, leading human rights organizations today issued the first-ever multilateral report calling for the more effective use of these human rights and anti-corruption accountability tools. “Targeted sanctions can play an important role in providing a measure of justice for victims of torture and other human rights violations. “It will go a long way to secure justice for victims and accountability for human rights violators, while protecting the security of our democracies. Jurisdictions should sanction perpetrators of corruption or human rights abuses without fear or favor, in complement to other foreign policy efforts. Recognize a wider range of human rights abuses and marginalized victims: Jurisdictions have largely overlooked certain serious human rights abuses such as human trafficking, and should impose sanctions for a broader array of abuses.18 days ago Human Rights First
In the spirit of all iterations of Creepshow in pop culture, each issue of the Creepshow comic anthology series comes packed with two spine-chilling stories. First, Steve Orlando (Marauders) and Marianna Ignazzi (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) scare up a sensational yarn about a young man who’ll go to extreme lengths to retain his youth. “Creepshow was a world I just had to step into,” said Steve Orlando. So, when I was invited to illustrate Clay McLeod Chapman’s beautifully grotesque tale about the centuries-old coming of age tradition, the debutante ball, I was beyond ecstatic!

He isn’t bad, but he does action / comedy better than a serious drama storyline. This balances out with Pierce Brosnan who makes the perfect sophisticated and sentimental Doctor Fate. Dwayne does an adequate job as the lead and does have some great scenes. I want to see more Hawkman and Doctor Fate. I suppose this could be a set up for a storyline if Black Adam gets a sequel.1 month ago Comic Watch
