Help us #BreakTheChains: Daily Brief

Join our global campaign to end shackling; protect US voters from white supremacist threat; migrants and asylum seekers forced out of Algeria; protests erupt over Bangladesh rape case; at the UN Human Rights Council, France is trailing from behind; is South Africa prepared for next wave of xenophobic violence?; and "don’t free me, free my country," says unjustly jailed dissident Pham Doan Trang in Vietnam.

White supremacist groups present a threat to the upcoming Presidential elections in the United States. A coalition of 58 civil and human rights organizations, among them Human Rights Watch, have urged the Department of Justice to protect voters and all people in a public letter

The authorities in Algeria have expelled thousands of migrants and asylum seekers to Niger during waves of roundups of mostly sub-Saharan Africans across at least nine cities in recent weeks

Protests in Bangladesh erupted this week after a video of a group of men attacking, stripping, and sexually assaulting a woman went viral.

Let’s hope that once elected to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, "France will show some spine and work with its friends and allies in making multilateralism work in the defense of human rights both near and far".

Without a comprehensive anti-xenophobia strategy that includes efforts to bring to justice those responsible for inciting and carrying out attacks, the horrific waves of xenophobic violence are likely to continue unabated in South Africa.

And an unjustly jailed dissident in Vietnam shares her message: 'Don’t free me, free my country.'
