Please support disabled children like Amy by giving them a voice – while I remain siLENT for 24 hours for Million Minutes.

Tomorrow, Friday.  I am staying siLENT with Million Minutes this Lent to raise money for young people who don’t have a voice. I will not speak, use my phone or social media for 24 hours! Please sponsor me. 

 

Your sponsorship will help young people like Amy. Amy always wanted to show people who she was, but she wasn’t able to. Instead growing up as a young person with a disability, she was often judged and bullied. Now that is changing. Million Minutes is working with For Jimmy to give Amy her voice. Our help enables her to use her experience of being rejected and bullied to support other young people living with disabilities, and to reduce the stigma of the label ‘disabled’. Your sponsorship will support people like Amy to change their lives and their world.

Government Questioned Today about massacre at Axum in Tigray, and allegations of crimes against humanity. In written replies it says it is unable to “verify reports that this includes the transfer of military equipment and money by the Government of Ethiopia to the Government of Eritrea”; “condemns the destruction of the Hitsats and Shimbella refugee camps in Tigray” and forced return of refugees would contravene the 1951 Refugee Convention; and says ” We are keeping the provision of aid to Ethiopia under constant review.”

For the Uyghurs, Genocide is a word which dares not speak its name. For the sake of women like Rahima Mahmut, Gulzira Auelkhan, Sayragul Sauytbay, and Ruqiye Perhat – whose heart-breaking, shocking, stories are recorded here – it’s time that the crime of genocide was given definition in the UK. On January 19th Parliament can use its voice and speak that name – insisting on justice for victims of Genocide and refusing to make tawdry trade deals with those responsible for the crime above all crimes.

Government replies to request for details of  the “pervasive and rotten culture”, and  the “culture of intimidation”, within Liverpool City Council; fails to say what assessment it has made of which documents, if any, have been destroyed in any of the Council’s departments; and says it “hopes that it will not be necessary for the Commissioners to exercise these powers, but instead that their main role would centre on supporting the Council itself in making changes.”
