In response to the success of @narcisocontreras108 ’s exhibition “Libya: A Human Marketplace” at @antwerpphoto , we are pleased to announce the display will be extended until September 30th! This in-depth #reportage , created over a period of five months, examines #humantrafficking in #Libya , and the resulting #humanitariancrisis involving #illegal #migrants , #refugees and #asylumseekers who are exploited by #militias . Held in detention centers for illegal migrants, they are subjected to #inhumaneconditions including overcrowding, lack of sanitation and vicious #beatings . Pictured is an image from the reportage. The caption: #Zawiyah , June #2016 . #SubSaharan illegal migrants and refugees are pictured begging for their release in the #Zawiyahdetentioncenter . The center’s director (not pictured) stands in front of the cell, threatening to beat them with a stick if they do not calm down, leading to panic on the part of the #detainees .

Regrann from @wetonia - Well...I SMELL SANCTUARY🆘 #Atlanta #Mayor   Keisha Lance Bottoms on Thursday signed an #executiveorder  to #permanently stop the #cityjail from receiving people detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The order also directs the Atlanta City Department of Corrections chief to formally request that #ICE officials transfer all current detainees from the #AtlantaCity #DetentionCenter as soon as possible. “As we work to achieve our vision of an Atlanta that is welcoming and inclusive, with equal opportunity for all, it is untenable for our City to be complicit in the #inhumane #immigration #policies that have led to the separation of hundreds of families at the #UnitedStates southern border,” Bottoms said in a statement. Atlanta has permanently ended its acceptance of ICE #detainees and will immediately transfer all those remaining out of our City jail. We will not be #complicit in an immigration policy that intentionally inflicts misery on vulnerable populations. @foxnewsinsider @icegov @realdonaldtrump - #regrann
I got da🥤, soooo according to city of Atlanta communication department: Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has signed an Executive Order directing the Chief of the Atlanta City Department of Corrections to take the necessary action to permanently stop receiving U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainees under the current agreement with the United States Marshals Service. —Additionally, the order directs Corrections Chief Patrick Labat to formally request that ICE officials transfer all current detainees from the Atlanta City Detention Center as soon as possible. #WhatYallThink #TrendyTopic #Immigration Laws #Atlanta #Laws #DeptofCorrection #Detainees #ICE #Trump #President #Mayor 🤔🧐 🗣Atlanta said we ain’t goin lol #Periodt 💪🏾😂✔️ #JustDoIt

Rough section from my upcoming novel, not Firm Resolve. 📖
Art has no geography. #Art has no citizenship. #Music has only one language which is universal. The same passion for art and fire of the music I happened to find in Central Jail Karachi, Sindh Pakistan. The prisoners artists were so talented that I being part of national team on Prison Reforms, was astonished. Convicted in murders, kidnapping, terrorism and drug smuggling, these people have made music and art sources of expression of their feelings and state of mind in the jail. #Karachi #SindhYatra ♥️🇵🇰 #Pakistan #Art #Music #School #Jail #education #humanrights #volunteer #NationalBuilding #nayapakistan 🇵🇰 #officersonduty 😇 #Women #Children #detainees #BasicRights #Unesco #FederalOmbudman #SupremeCourtOfPakistan #travelling #traveler #travelblogger #travelphotography #instapakistan #instagram #storyteller

Tomorrow morning I’ll be at this church, teaching about immigrant detention and encouraging people to visit immigrants in the detention center in Jessup, MD. . . By far, the most difficult thing I’ve ever done is sit and listen to immigrants in detention—these are people locked up for misdemeanor crimes and often transported and detained far from their families. I want to help and solve all their problems but all I can do is sit and listen to them. Literally, the only visitors they have are people who practice this holy ministry of presence and listening. They are lonely, bored, and desperate for an immigration solution. . . I’m grateful for the opportunity to help other people understand the injustices surrounding detention centers and urging them to engage in an opportunity to serve Jesus by visiting those who are detained. “...I was in prison, and you visited me.” . . #detentioncenter #immigrantdetention #immigrantsarewelcomehere #immigrationjustice #detainees

What is seen in war does not haunt a man as much as what he does in war. War brings out the best in men, sure, but it also brings out the evil bits as well. Man carries out actions in war he did not know he was capable of. It is those things a man must spend his life coming to terms with. A man thinks himself honorable until he is not. Society lifts him up as a brave hero while the evil he has committed eats him up. This story is my way of dealing with my inner demons. It is my way to process the evil I have done. This story is not meant to dishonor the brave men which have served - and there are many. This story is meant to shine a light on the darkness people don't like to expose. War is a complex beast. History will lift up certain men and heroes, and others as villains. In reality they are both. This is a story of me as the villain. - To read the story, please visit jasonrcrawford.com (link in profile) - #memoirmonday #marines #usmc #iraq #creativewriting #warstories #detainees #innerdemons

Before we began our tour of the #Adelanto Detention Facility this morning, ICE officials spoke to me and my congressional colleagues about what we could expect to see on the tour. We're paying close attention to the conditions in which #immigrant #detainees in U.S. government care are being held, and the treatment they are receiving.
They tried to stop us by putting up a chain link fence around the facility but we gathered together across the road and made a lot of noise so those inside could hear us and know they weren’t forgotten. #vigil #richmond #westcountydetentionfacility in support of #immigrant #detainees #keepfamiliestogether #notmypresident #letourpeoplego #firstammendment
This is what #freedom looks like? This is what #democracy looks like? #notinmyname I’ve had the privilege of spending the past week with #warriors in #folkston #georgia assisting with #probono representation of #detainees . Occupying half of a federal prison, the facility houses a sea of black and brown faces - 1,100 beds. Many turn themselves in at the border after days long, dangerous journeys across many countries. They seek asylum. Protection. Their lives are at risk. Many (most?) don’t speak English and have few connections. As a welcome, our government puts them #behindbars and #barbedwire . We are all #immigrants . This is wrong. We need to do more and do better. For them and each other. Thank you to those devoting their lives to this cause. You give me hope. @henrivinetmartin @jonezztown #privateprisons #livingnightmare #whatareyoudoing

Did you know that CARAD is contributing to international advocacy for refugees? CARAD's Operations Manager, Joanna, recently participated with other individuals from well-known aid organisations around Australia to contribute to a scorecard used for the Global NextGen Index. "The scorecards use a comprehensive framework to track child migration experiences, including child detention, and then determine a global ranking of state action and commitment. Is your government keeping their promise? Launching on International Youth Day, 12 August 2018, the Global NexGen Index uses annual scorecards to evaluate 22 states on their progress to implement alternatives to child immigration detention. Children continue to be psychologically damaged from detention all around the world, when there are alternatives that can be more affordable and effective" For more information, check out the website, http://next-gen-index.org/ . . . . . . . . . . . . #CompassionInAction #CARAD #Welcome #EatShareConnectGIVE #RefugeesWelcome #Refugees #ThankYou #InternationalPerth #Perth #PerthWA #PerthNotForProfit #PerthGives #PerthVolunteers #PerthFoodies #AsylumSeekers #Detainees #GIVE #Volunteers #NotForProfit #BringThemHere #LetThemStay
"I didn’t realise what was going on until this guy had pushed his fingers inside my eyes and I could feel the coldness of his fingers. Then I realised he was trying to gouge out my eyes. When he pulled his hands out I remember I couldn’t see anything. I’d completely lost sight in both eyes. I was lucky and grateful to be reunited with my family and back to the warmth of my home. To be touched at last by the soft, cool wind of freedom, but my joy remains incomplete and will remain so until the rest of the unlawfully held detainees share my experience of freedom at last." — Omar Deghayes, still blind in one eye, cleared and released after 5 years in Guantanamo. . #shutdownguantanamo #humanrightsviolation #mi6 #fbi #intelligence #antiterror #prisioners #detainees #islam #muslims #resistance #illegaldention #humanrights #un #waronterror #injustice #guantanamobay #tonyblair #georgebush #radicals #warcriminals #islamophobia

"Perhaps the fate of those killed by chemical attacks and barrel bombs is better than that of a detainee. At least in an attack a rocket comes and you die, you're not tortured. Detainees die a hundred deaths a day." - former detainee in Syria In the last few weeks, hundreds of Syrian families learned that their loved ones who had disappeared in government detention facilities had died. Many found out as they requested routine records from the Syrian administration and were stunned to find that the authorities had recently registered their relatives as dead. Detainees have been dying in large numbers in Syria for years. The scale became clear in early 2014 when a defector code-named Caesar, whose job in the military police was to photograph the bodies of dead detainees, smuggled out thousands of photos and internal documents, exposing how every detainee death was recorded and photographed. https://fpif.org/syrias-bureaucracy-of-death-and-the-fate-of-the-disappeared/ #humanrightswatch #Humanrights #humanrightsviolations #Syria #detainees #whatisnext ?

STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY WITH CIVILIANS IN SYRIA One year ago, our beloved friend, fellow activist and colleague Malak was killed by an airstrike carried out by the Syrian regime on the then-besieged suburb of Damascus, Eastern Ghouta. We want to remember her commitment to women empowerment, encouraging others to become leaders and her tenacious spirit. She was only 26 years old, when she was taken from this world. Sadly, instead of having the time and space to mourn her death, we are overwhelmed by more devastating news. For the past few weeks, the Syrian regime has been releasing lists of detainees who have died in its detention centers. Detention in Syria is essentially enforced disappearance. When someone is taken to prison, they do not receive a phone call, legal counsel or have access to communication. This in turn means their families are left completely in the dark about the fate of their loved ones. These newly released lists contain hundreds of names and are being displayed in civil registry offices across Syria. Many families had not heard for years about their loved ones and are now finding out without proper evidence that they have been deceased for years. These families are not receiving their bodies, they cannot bury their relatives and therefore remain without closure. Most death certificates state heart attacks as the reason of death, which human rights organizations question. We stand in solidarity with the victims and their families. May the victims rest in Peace and the families find out the truth about what happened in the detention centers. We ask for investigations into these deaths and to provide the families with proof. Most of the family members who survive these detainees are women who must carry on as the head of household and sole breadwinner. Some of these women are brave members of our team, we present our deep condolences to them and to all the families. We commit ourselves again to supporting women and families to know the truth for those who have been announced dead and also for those whose relatives’ fate is still unknown. #Women #womensvoices #syria #detainees #swaida #justice
