IHEU is seeking donations to its Human Rights Defense Fund to help cover legal fees for Leo Igwe, IHEUâ€™s Representative in West Africa. Mr. Igwe and members of his family have been subjected to a sustained campaign of harassment by local police involving multiple arrests on unsubstantiated charges since he began a campaign to bring to justice a powerful local man accused of raping a ten year old girl.

HumanistLife, the BHA’s new website, offers a varied selection of stories. Bob Churchill from the BHA says,
The aim is that www.HumanistLife.org.uk will become a major node for expression and discussion of issues close to Humanism on the web.
We want to provide a space where our members and supporters, affiliated humanist groups, staff and Distinguished Supporters can build a content-rich, quality site, giving many humanist and other perspectives on current affairs, society, science and culture, as well as philosophical, artistic, video-based and other contributions. We want to bring together everyone who shares our broad worldview to present a bold, diverse vision of modern Humanism: its interests, its concerns and its inspirations.
One of the latest reports is about the courageous Nigerian Humanist, Leo Igwe, whose campaign against the “witch-hunters” who target defenceless children, and other human rights violations, have attracted threats against his life.
