The Gist of It – Sarah Joseph explains the ICCPR

By Right Now Radio

Right Now Radio’s new segment The Gist of It takes a complex issue and has someone who really knows what they’re talking about explain it, in two minutes. Just enough information that we can understand the gist of it.

Hugh Crosthwaite chats to the team about the new segment, and how it began.

And this month, Professor Sarah Joseph from the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law explains the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.



Blackout (poem)

By Bänoo Zan

Bänoo Zan’s poem was written in the aftermath of countrywide protests against sudden steep rise in fuel price in Iran on November 15. Authorities shot down the Internet of the whole country and embarked on a horrific killing spree. Amnesty International has so far verified 208 deaths in less than a week.
