Niober had been planning and looking forward to this trip for months. It took him almost two days to reach Havana international airport from his town in Guantanamo, Cuba, but he still arrived well before his flight. He'd budgeted in plenty of time, knowing security is tight and checkpoints are common across the island. At the airport, just before the final security line, an officer from the Ministry of Interior quietly took him to a side. The officer told Niober he could not board the plane.

Yolanda Barranco Hernández will never forget the morning of 18 May 2013. It started with a loud noise. Seven men carrying heavy weapons broke down the door of her house. They were looking for her husband, Damián Gallardo Martínez. They didn't present any warrant. They said they were there to arrest him and they took him away.

By Sebastiana Pérez Hernández

Sebastiana has a sad look on her eyes.

For more than five months, she has been demanding the Mexican authorities find her husband Fidencio Gómez Sántiz. She wants him back, and alive. So far, her demands have been met with silence.

Sebastiana Pérez Hernández is a 45-year-old woman and is the mother of two children. She speaks the indigenous language tzeltal and lives in the village of Las Perlas, in the municipality of Ocosingo, Chiapas. She is a member of the grassroots organisation Frente Nacional de Lucha por el Socialismo (FNLS).

2016年7月12日到13日,欧盟与中国的年度高峰会议即将于北京召开。在英国脱欧引发欧洲动荡两周之后,中国很可能会认为这是一个良好的机会,可以利用欧盟成员国,获得更好的贸易协定。

虽然中国可能会认为现在的欧洲很虚弱,但是欧盟切不可淡化对人权和民主的承诺,向中国政府绥靖。事实上,没有英国,欧盟可能处于更有力的地位,强调人权和法治的重要性。

英国在欧盟中曾经是中国最大的辩护者,因为英国推动所谓的“黄金时代”的友谊。没有英国,欧盟可以更加坚守原则,并且通过这次峰会发出明确的信息,那就是虽然欧盟向中国开放更多的贸易,欧洲在支持中国人权方面不会妥协。具体而言,欧盟领导人必须强烈声明继续支持中国人权捍卫者,尽管中国政府企图让这些人权捍卫者噤声。
