I can count on two hands the amount of times I've been subject to direct racist insults. It's always a terrible shock. It takes my breath away and stays with me forever. The sense of injustice, of prejudice, the realisation that people judge you as different.

Activism, No Longer A Dirty Word

The term 'activist' should really be stripped of its obnoxious (and in many cases unfair) connotations and begin to be understood exactly as what it really means: acting resolutely in accordance with ones most dearly held principles. The crowds that have been marching in unity throughout the world show that this process is already under way and I urge every one of us to raise their banner alongside them in solidarity.

This week has marked a pivotal moment in the British judicial system as the UK's highest court has finally ruled that the law on 'joint enterprise' has been wrongly interpreted for 30 years. I believe that to be an understatement.

Alan Turing Was Posthumously Pardoned - But There Are Thousands of Casualties of That Terrible Law

Turing was posthumously pardoned and while he was a hero, there are thousands of casualties of that terrible law, thousands of men who are not heroes, but who cannot be overlooked for justice simply for seeking out the relationships to which all people are entitled... With this petition, I'm happy to play a small part in a campaign that can materially improve the lives of men convicted under discriminatory laws. The British government did the right thing by pardoning Turing, and now it's time for another positive step forward.

Justice Delayed

What should concern us all though, is a new class of injustice creeping into the system and one which not only can the Courts not deal with, but is one which is created by the Courts themselves. The problem is one of listing.

Fighting for Equality: Human Rights Day

Human rights are rights fundamental to all humanity. This means that everyone is entitled to their rights without discrimination; these rights do not consider age, sex, race, nationality, religion, language, ethnic origins or sexual orientation.

Many children dream of becoming a superhero, of righting wrongs and saving the world from injustice. Often, the superhero himself has suffered a difficult and painful childhood and wishes to protect others from a similar fate...

Will They Ever Let Us Back to Our Families?

I know I will leave here one day, perhaps soon. I have long been cleared, for six years now. But what of the other men here? Again, I worry about the 80 people who have not been cleared more than I do about myself and the other 83 who have. Some might get a trial of sorts, but scores never will. They say it's because they can't use the evidence against them in court. Even if we believe this excuse, we might well ask why the evidence is inadmissible - is it because they tortured the men? If so, then a thousand years of experience tells us that the statements are certainly unreliable, and probably false.

Richard Wright died on 28 November 1960. The Afro-American writer paved the way for future writers like James Baldwin, Ralph Ellison and Toni Morrison and prepared the ground for the civil rights movement. Both his memoirs Black Boy and Native Son were instant bestsellers and changed the literary scene in the US over night.

The Injustice System

Israel operates two different systems of law for two different groups of people. One is significantly harsher than the other. Caabu is the latest organisation to call for an end to wholesale discrimination and ethnic segregation in Israel's judicial processes. They join Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Defence for Children International and the UK Foreign Office in calling for Israel to implement significant changes to accord with international law, and basic human rights.

London Courts Must Remain Open to Fighting Injustice Overseas

As their Lordships debate the Bill, and lawyers thank Messrs Abramovich and Berezovsky for their fees, it is not too late for the government to propose a small change in the Bill that would enable the poor person at the gate to have entry as well as the billionaire.

Congo, Christians and Tiny 'We's

As a universal religion that potentially and at its best can be expressed within (and can simultaneously critique and subvert) any culture, Christianity, with its focus on the New Testament, should never place one race, one nation, one culture above another in any automatic way.
