Our human rights protest in pictures
Vigil in front of the Federal Chancellory, 12.01.2015
January 16, 2015
On Monday, 12/01/2015, Angela Merkel received the Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. We took the opportunity to have a vigil in front of the Federal German Chancellor. We demanded an end of the support of radical Islamists in Syria by the Turkish government and humanitarian aid supplies for the distressed Kurdish and Christian civilians.

"Zarte Bande – Mensch und Tier 2015" - the new picture calendar of the Society for Threatened Peoples (STP) delights with very special images. You can almost feel the wing beat of the golden eagle that rises into the air of Mongolia. The caution with which a Bishnoi in northern India holds a newborn Antilope in his hands shows his compassion for the orphaned baby animal. The Dinka in southern Sudan with their Zebu cattle, the Bakhtiari with their goats in the Iranian Zagros Mountains, a Native American woman on her Mustang in Wyoming, a young Tibetan monk with his kitten and an elephant swimming in the Ocean at the Andaman Islands together with his keeper – the large-format color photographs on the pages for each month are surprising, touching, stirring.

On the back of the pages, you will find profound, entertaining and exciting expert reports on the relationship between mankind and animals in different cultures.

According to the Society for Threatened Peoples (STP), Angela Merkel's offer to establish new economic relations with Russia if there is a solution for peace in Ukraine is a "wrong signal at the wrong time". As Sarah Reinke – the human rights organization's expert on questions concerning the CIS-states – stated in Berlin on Friday, the Russian President should not be rewarded for playing a "double game".

January 22, 2015

In China, the nomadic people of Inner Mongolia are acutely threatened by land grabbing and the consequences of mining. It is understandable that the German economy welcomes the recent approval of rare earths exports from China. For the Nomads of Inner Mongolia, however, this is a serious threat. They are suffering a lot from the effects of mining.
