on International Human Rights Day

 

December 10th marks International Human Rights Day and two years since the arbitrary and unjustified detention of Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor by Chinese authorities.

We echo the calls from the Canadian government, the international community, and the families of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor for these two men to be released immediately and returned home.
