By HUMAN RIGHTS FOUNDATION OF TURKEY
International law prohibits torture and violation of right to life. Prohibition is absolute and non-derogable. States are obliged to respect to this prohibition and there is not any exceptional circumstances whatsoever may be invoked by a state to justify acts of torture, including war.
Yet, violence of police forces against to people who are enjoying their right to assembly and demonstration which has started in Istanbul and spread all around the country reached the level of brutality. This is clearly act of torture and violation of right to life.
We, the International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL) herein represented by its governing Bureau in session and joined by fellow members firmly reiterate our call to the present Philippine government to hold past and present perpetrators of human rights violators accountable.

Campaign for Peace & Democracy condemned the forced eviction perpetrated by the Government of Manipur in Sangakpham area on 13 May 2013.

In recent years, resource extraction has intensified under the Harper government in Canada, as capitalist profit-making is increasingly "fueled" by the rape and plunder of the land and its resources, especially the ancestral lands of Indigenous peoples.
As part of its work to defend land defenders and build people's power, the ILPS-Canada Commission in Support of Indigenous People's Struggles is supporting grassroots women from the Ojibway Nation of Saugeen located in northwestern Ontario, Canada.
