Importance Of Supporting Migration And Human Rights Defenders

In the recent years, there has been a rise in the unprecedented flows of migrant and asylum seeking refugees. To this end, migration and human rights defenders, and other civil groups have been coming to the fore to uphold their rights, provide assistance to the vulnerable groups and collaborate with governments to handle the refugee crisis.

Governments are required to protect migrants and take interest in partnering with other stakeholders. However, many governments have demonstrated unwillingness or inability to fulfill their obligations. Instead they have been placing strict regulations on groups that advocate for migration and human rights.

These groups need to be supported and given space to operate without unnecessary restrictions. Some instances of hostility on human rights defenders and civil society organizations include vilification, stigmatization, and retaliation against lawyers and human rights advocates in different countries. Some governments criminalize services that are directed towards migrants while others restrict freedom of expression.

These excessive limitations create a difficult working environment for human rights advocates and civil societies. However, there have been successful efforts to challenge immigration practices that undermine human rights. The International Service for Human Rights (ISHR) has pushed for the prioritization of “defenders of migrant and refugee rights” by the UN Human Rights Council.

This situation has forced the High Commissioner to release a practical guidance of State policies on migrants. The Principles and Practical Guidance on Respecting the Human Rights of Migrants in Vulnerable Situations draft requires the State to respect all groups that advocate for human rights and offer assistance to migrants.

It states that the legitimate efforts of human rights advocates should not be criminalized by government laws and policies, but should be supported. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikepida  and Jim Larkin | Huffington Post

The principle holds the State and stakeholders accountable for violence, discrimination, reprisals or intimidation faced by these groups. Lastly, the principle requires the government to publicly support and promote the work of the human rights groups and civil societies.

About Lacey & Larkin

Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund supports groups that advocate for migrant, civil, and human rights, including freedom of speech and civic participation in Arizona. Lacey & Larkin was co-founded by two reputable journalists, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, who use their settlement to fund the organization’s activities.

Recently, the two were arrested by Sheriff Joe Arpaio. In October 2007, the duo were awarded $3.75 million after being put behind bars for disclosing the ongoing grand jury proceedings that demanded their notes covering Sheriff Arpiao.

Astonishingly, the grand jury also sought the identity of citizens who read the journalists’ New Times stories online. Lacey and Larkin used their knowledge of the First Amendment rights to sue the county. In the end, the United States Court of Appeal made a ruling in their favor.

Hair Game Changer No-Poo Shampoos

There are many benefits of using a no-poo shampoo. The name may sound contradictory, but this type of shampoo actually has an edge over the traditional shampoo and conditioner cleansing routine.

One of the popular no-poo shampoos is the cleansing conditioner from WEN by Chaz. The brand WEN by Chaz was founded by Chaz Dean. As a hard worker and perfectionist, Chaz Dean decided that his product would not be released until it was high-quality and and something consumers would smile over.

Created without harsh chemicals (such as sodium laureth sulfate), WEN by Chaz’s cleansing conditioner won’t wash away all of the hair’s natural oils that it needs to stay strong and healthy. With only the grease and environmental dirt getting washed away, natural oils are allowed to continue their job of protecting the hair. With extra protection come many benefits. The first benefit is that hair looks shinier in a healthy way. The second benefit is that the hair is smoother and healthier, which means that one may no longer need extra deep-conditioning products after using WEN by Chaz’s cleansing conditioner. With stronger, more conditioned hair, comes longer hair that requires less trimming of split ends. Cleansing conditioners not only allow less trips to the salon, but also less time to get ready; with less products to use (as the cleansing conditioner is a 2-in-1 hair product), less time is needed to wash and conditioner the hair. Having great hair no longer has to take great time.

Atlanta Hawks Files a Lawsuit Against an Insurance Firm

Bruce Levenson is a partner and the co-founder of the United Communications Group. He is also the director of Atlanta Spirit and a co-founder of UCG. Before launching the UCG Company, Levenson used to write for the Observe Publishing and Washington Star.

Bruce Levenson is a former owner of Atlanta Hawks. Atlanta Hawks owns the Atlanta Hawks basketball team.

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball company, which is the previous owner of the NBA franchise, has succeeded in filing a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance company. The lawsuit is for a supposed breach of contract that involved the settlement of numerous claims that were made by Danny Ferry.

Danny Ferry is the former general manager of the firm. However, the lawsuit does not include the current ownership of the hawk’s basketball company that is currently led by Tony Ressler.

The lawsuit is as a result of bad insurance faith and also a breach of contract. The Atlanta Hawks in the lawsuits claim that they had insured the company against losses that may be accrued as a result of employment malpractices such as workplace torts and acts of wrongful termination.

Ferry and the Hawks ownership had agreed on a secret buyout agreement that ended their six-year relationship. The lawsuit points out that the insurance company, referred to as American International Group Inc., had refused to accept that a claim had been lodged. This could have led to the triggering of the policy automatically.

American International Group Inc. had refused to participate in the defense of the lodged claims or the acceptance of the coverage. This resulted in the said breach of contract and the eventual refusal by the insurance company to pay for the covered losses.

The lawsuit makes a demand of an extra 50 percent in a penalty for the unpaid amount and the coverage of the attorney’s fees. The insurance company is so far proving uncooperative because the emails that were recently sent to the firm were not returned.
