There's positive news regarding the fight for racial equality in the United States. 

Katerina Sergatskova, a Ukrainian journalist who wrote about the alleged influence of far-right groups on a fact-checking organization, is receiving death threats. Her personal information has been published online.

The Committee to Protect Journalists has called on the authorities in Egypt to release all journalists held for their work, as even brief detentions amid the COVID-19 pandemic can mean a death sentence. Read this report about Mohamed Monir, a reporter who died after contracting Covid-19 in pretrial detention in Egypt.

Governments must be held accountable for the deaths of health and essential workers who they have failed to protect from Covid-19, Amnesty International said in a new report published today on the plight of health workers around the world.

And when you remember Liu Xiaobo, China's Nobel Peace Prize winner who died on July 13, 2017, consider supporting other rights activists in the country.
