#Cameroon Thread: I worry about the security situation in the country. With #BokoHaram stepping up attacks in the #FarNorth & armed separatists continuing their violent campaign in the #Anglophone regions, civilians are the main targets. Eastern border with CAR also volatile 1/4

Western #Australia’s govt should end the use of prolonged solitary confinement for prisoners, particularly those with #disabilities. Some prisoners are spending more than 23 hrs a day in solitary confinement under the "disruptive prisoner policy." https://t.co/wI8dsMSRdG @hrw https://t.co/LnAQxRT5Oi

Congress passed MJ reform that only benefits the legal industry, leaving communities behind. The MORE Act would remove convictions from people’s records, eliminating barriers to jobs, housing & education. No MJ reform without racial justice! cc: @LeaderHoyer #WeWantMORE NOW. https://t.co/eF9AepbMF5

And police detentions in central Minsk continuing. HRW’s researcher saw police randomly grab 2 young men, 3 young women, then another man and another woman. Over nothing. 3 girls then a guy and a girl detained by police - over nothing. Then put them on this bus https://t.co/PuqroYEoHb

Belarusian authorities have unleashed brute force in this country, in an effort to crush peaceful protests and stifle public discontent. They are setting a new precedent for police violence in Belarus, and are on track to a new, low point in human rights for the past 25 years. https://t.co/BSf4tXrqh8
