A Research-Based Reference Book Embarks on Inclusion of Immigrant Families and Multiply marginalized Students


reference_text_book_with_three_authos.jpg
 
 
Learning Challenges for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Students with Disabilities(IGI Global, 2020) by Dr. Soraya Fallah, Dr. Bronte Reynolds, and Dr. Wendy Murawski is a newly published reference book that will help working practitioners gain some information addressing specific areas of disability, learn strategies for improving the home-school collaboration, and be more comfortable with issues related to special education law. It also motivates administrators, other school leaders, and legislators to support those working in special education to bring about change and collaborate with teachers about best practices and effective communication.
 
The book provides a clear understanding of the important legal aspects of special education, the recognition of differences in disability areas, and the search for strategies that ensure inclusive practices.

 Iranian Kurdish prisoner Heidar Ghorbani, 47, is at risk of execution

Dear Friends,

Please find attached and copied below an Urgent Action that Amnesty International issued yesterday on Iranian Kurdish prisoner, Heidar Ghorbani, 47, who is at risk of execution for "armed rebellion against the state" (baghi), despite serious fair trial violations and the trial court confirming that he was never armed. His conviction is based on torture-tainted "confessions", obtained while he was forcibly disappeared. The authorities must quash his sentence and grant him a fair retrial.

The Urgent Action is available on the Amnesty International website at the following link:
https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/mde13/3101/2020/en/

Please also find attached graphics in English and Persian, which can be used on social media.

Many thanks and best wishes,
Iran team

Iran: Leaked official letters reveal state denial of COVID-19 crisis in prisons


July 31st, 2020

crisis_in_iran_prisons.jpg

 

amnestylogo.gif Leaked official letters newly obtained by Amnesty International reveal that the Iranian government has ignored repeated pleas by senior officials responsible for managing Iran's prisons for additional resources to control the spread of COVID-19 and treat infected prisoners.

The organization reviewed copies of four letters signed by officials at Iran's Prisons Organization, which operates under the supervision of the judiciary, to the Ministry of Health, raising the alarm over serious shortages of protective equipment, disinfectant products, and essential medical devices. The Ministry of Health failed to respond, and Iran's prisons remain catastrophically unequipped for outbreaks.

 

These official letters provide damning evidence of the government's failure to protect prisoners. Urgent requests for resources have been ignored for months
Diana Eltahawy, Deputy Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa

The details in the letters stand in stark contrast to public statements by the former head of the Prisons Organization and current advisor to the head of the judiciary, Asghar Jahangir, who has lauded Iran's "exemplary" initiatives to protect prisoners from the pandemic, and denied reports of increasing infection rates and COVID-19-related deaths inside prisons resulting from overcrowding, unsanitary conditions and lack of access to health care.

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL: Iran: Further Information: Syrian Kurd Under Threat of Execution in Iran چاپ ارسال به دوست

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL/Iran: Further Information: Syrian Kurd Under Threat of Execution in Iran: Kamal Hassan Ramezan Soulo


Dear Friends,

Please find attached and copied below an Urgent Action that Amnesty International issued today on Kamal Hassan Ramezan Soulo, a Syrian Kurd arbitrarily detained in Iran's West Azerbaijan province. Kamal Hassan Ramezan Suolo has been at risk of arbitrary execution for three years because ministry of intelligence officials refuse to acknowledge his real identity and instead are torturing and otherwise ill-treating him to make false "confessions" that he took part in an armed attack. They continue to seek his execution by claiming that he is a different man, despite two court rulings dismissing the claims. He must be released immediately.

Many thanks and best wishes,
Iran team

Amnesty International/ Iran: Forcibly disappeared prisoner feared ‘executed by firing squad

The Iranian authorities are responsible for the ongoing crime of enforced disappearance against prisoner Hedayat Abdollahpour and his family, and must reveal the full truth concerning his secret execution and return his body to his family, Amnesty International said today.

The organization is also calling on the Iranian authorities to account for why they led his family and lawyers to believe that he was still alive for weeks after he was forcibly disappeared.

Hedayat Abdollahpour, a Kurdish prisoner on death row, was transferred on 9 May from the Central Prison of Urumieh, in West Azerbaijan province, to an undisclosed location. Over the following four weeks, the authorities refused to provide his family and lawyers with any information regarding his fate or whereabouts, therefore subjecting him to enforced disappearance.
