> Urgent Appeal: Stop Arbitrary Detentions in Turkey!
> The international public has so far been oblivious to the so-called “KCK operations” carried out in Turkey by Prime Minister Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party for the past two years. Under the guise of “fighting terrorism,” the Erdogan government has been using the judiciary, the police, and the media to penalize all civic activism in support of rights demanded by Kurdish citizens in Turkey. The “KCK operations” in particular have been deployed to spread fear amongst activists, to silence public dissent, and to normalize the arbitrary arrest of citizens.

> European Race Audit Briefing Papers
> The IRR's European Race Audit (ERA) is now publishing regular free online briefing papers which are available as part of subscriptions to the IRR News Service. The ERA is one of the few sources of comprehensive pan-European information on racism, the extreme Right and Islamophobia. It also documents the erosion of human rights as a result of asylum and immigration law and civil liberties and as a result of the war on terror. The European Race Audit was launched in 1991 and its huge archive - of over sixty Bulletins on pan-European race and refugee issues - is an invaluable source of information for students, researchers and campaigners.

> Unlock the truth in Lithuania: Investigate Secret Prisons Now
> "In the continuing absence of any meaningful accountability in the USA, and increasingly disturbing signs that the same may happen in other European countries, the Lithuanian government should re-open its criminal investigation into both its own involvement in these operations, and that of the USA and its agents on Lithuanian territory, and conduct an independent, impartial, thorough and ef fective investigation that will serve as a model for accountability across the region."
