Adam Bemma | Radio Coordinator

The 16th edition of the jhr Rights Report brings attention to gender-based violence in Canada and around the world. First, International Crisis Group President/CEO Louise Arbour wrote an editorial in Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper calling on Sri Lanka to end gender-based violence against Tamil women. Second, Missing Justice is a Canadian movement calling for a national public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada.

*Rights Report news update*: Khader Adnan, a Palestinian activist being held in an Israeli prison without trial or charge, has surpassed 50 days of a hunger strike against inhumane treatment. Many fear Adnan may die in Israeli custody if he doesn’t receive urgent medical care.
