By Masha Chichtchenkova

Last week I attended the court hearings on case of Oyub Titiev, the head of the Human Rights Center Memorial branch in Grozny who was absurdly charged with drug possession. I first met Oyub Titiev in 2009 after our common beloved colleague Natalya Estemirova had been abducted and assassinated.

Mariam Diallo Dramé milite depuis son enfance. Elle n'avait que 13 ans lorsqu'elle a créé le Parlement des enfants du Mali, pour protéger les droits des enfants. Aujourd'hui, elle est présidente de l'Association Femmes Leadership et Développement Durable (AFLeD) et elle continue à défendre les droits des femmes et des enfants à la santé, à l'éducation, et aux opportunités de leadership, dans un pays que le Forum économique mondial considère comme l'un des plus dangereux au monde.

Le bien-être est apparemment dangereux en Turquie. Lorsque mon amie Ozlem Dalkiran a assisté à une formation sur la sécurité holistique, on lui a demandé de dessiner quelque chose qui représente ce qui la préoccupe. C'est le genre de tableau et de post-it se voulant bien intentionnés qui perturbent mon degré de stress, mais Ozlem a joué le jeu et dessiné une carte de la Turquie avec des personnages représentant des personnes fuyant la guerre en Irak et en Syrie à l'est et des amis emprisonnés à Istanbul.

On 7 March, Wikileaks published a trove of documents showing the United States Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) capabilities to remotely hack devices running Android, iOS, Windows, Mac OS X and others.

My friend Dr Mudawi Ibrahim Adam is currently chained by hands and feet to a wall in Kober Prison in Khartoum. He has been badly beaten. He started a hunger strike on Sunday in protest at his detention without access to a lawyer since the 7th of December 2016. He was allowed a brief visit from his brothers 10 days ago, but has otherwise been denied access also to his family.

Autocrats had a good year in 2016.

Brutal repression received a lot of encouragement.

Killers and torturers enjoyed impunity.

Putin and Xi Jinping led an idealogical assault on the very idea of human rights.
