"Today we lost the most important voice of our generation on behalf of human rights and social justice in the United States and around the world. Ted Kennedy was our indispensable hero on all these issues. He has supported the work of the RFK Center since his brother Bob's death in 1968 and we will miss him terribly." - Philip Johnston, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the RFK Center
The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights is deeply saddened by the loss of an American human rights icon, founding Board Member and vital supporter, Senator Edward M. Kennedy. No public servant in America has done more to stand up for fundamental human rights both at home and abroad than Senator Kennedy. In an unparalleled career in the U.S. Senate, he has led the fight on behalf of America's poor, minority, immigrant communities and those who lacked a voice on issues including civil rights, workers' rights, and what he called "the fight of my life," the right of universal health care for all Americans.
Senator Kennedy has been a champion for international human rights, helping bring peace to Northern Ireland, rallying unity against apartheid in South Africa, and standing up for the powerless in past conflicts in Latin America and today in Darfur. He has brought light to injustices in lesser known parts of the world, including Western Sahara and the Dominican Republic.
"Senator Kennedy was an unrelenting force in American politics, continually pushing our nation to strive for our ideals of justice, public service, equality and human rights. Alongside his epic body of work in the U.S. Senate, his dedication to the RFK Center, including hosting the annual RFK Human Rights Award and unwavering advocacy, will reverberate in communities at home and abroad for years to come. He will always remain a beloved figure in the hearts of the disenfranchised around the globe", said Lynn Delaney, Executive Director of the RFK Center. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Vicki, their children, and the entire Kennedy family."
Michelle and I were heartbroken to learn this morning of the death of our dear friend, Senator Ted Kennedy.
For nearly five decades, virtually every major piece of legislation to advance the civil rights, health and economic well-being of the American people bore his name and resulted from his efforts.
His ideas and ideals are stamped on scores of laws and reflected in millions of lives -- in seniors who know new dignity; in families that know new opportunity; in children who know education's promise; and in all who can pursue their dream in an America that is more equal and more just, including me.
In the United States Senate, I can think of no one who engendered greater respect or affection from members of both sides of the aisle. His seriousness of purpose was perpetually matched by humility, warmth and good cheer. He battled passionately on the Senate floor for the causes that he held dear, and yet still maintained warm friendships across party lines. And that's one reason he became not only one of the greatest senators of our time, but one of the most accomplished Americans ever to serve our democracy.
I personally valued his wise counsel in the Senate, where, regardless of the swirl of events, he always had time for a new colleague. I cherished his confidence and momentous support in my race for the Presidency. And even as he waged a valiant struggle with a mortal illness, I've benefited as President from his encouragement and wisdom.
His fight gave us the opportunity we were denied when his brothers John and Robert were taken from us: the blessing of time to say thank you and goodbye. The outpouring of love, gratitude and fond memories to which we've all borne witness is a testament to the way this singular figure in American history touched so many lives.
For America, he was a defender of a dream. For his family, he was a guardian. Our hearts and prayers go out to them today -- to his wonderful wife, Vicki, his children Ted Jr., Patrick and Kara, his grandchildren and his extended family.
Today, our country mourns. We say goodbye to a friend and a true leader who challenged us all to live out our noblest values. And we give thanks for his memory, which inspires us still.

India: Please take immediate action to save the life of the Female Human Rights Defender in Manipur,India
Peoples' Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR), Varanasi received information from its associates Wide Angle, Manipur that Female Human Rights Defender received threat for opposing the arbitrary detention of a school girl Ms. Salam Bidyarani Devi.
Ms. Ningthoujam Memchatombi Devi, Convener of Joint Action Committee (JAC) against the illegal arrest of a school girl was threatened by the Manipur Police Commando at around 12:30 pm for opposing the arbitrary detention of school child Ms. Salam Bidyarani Devi. This joint committee was formed for the release of the Miss Bidyarani.
After receiving information from the associates on 18th August, 09 around 6.29 pm letter was sent to Chief Minister of Manipur and copied to Prime Minister and H.E. President of India with the plea for the immediate release of Bidyarani, 11 year old daughter of Mr. S. Dewan Shingh of Nongmaikhong, Mayai leikai, Imphal west district.
She was released around at 7 pm on 18th and on 19th August, 09 at around 1:30 pm she was handed over to her family. The physical and mental condition of Bidyarani is not sound; as she became very weak and unconscious too.
According the information,S. Bidyarani Devi was picked up by the Manipur Police Commando on 14th August, 09 and was detained in Mayang Imphal Police station for four days. Her detention is against the Honorable Supreme Court Judgment in case of D.K Basu Vs. Government of West Bengal, Juvenile Justice Act 2000 and UN convention on Child Right
19th August morning her parents were also threatened, while they were working in the farm place which is 2 ½ km far away from her native place.
Therefore it is my kind request to provide immediate medical and psychological support to Bidyarani and ensure proper safety to Bidyarani family and Ms. Ningthoujam Memchatombi and the common people of Manipur to prevent the atrocities and establish rule of Law.
On 16th August, 09 arbitrarily detention and harassment of four innocent young boys by Indian para military forces (Assam Rifles posted at one Ningthoukhong village some 8 Km away from Karang island).
1. Salam James so of Jhulon Singh Age 19 years, reading in Class XI
2. Haobijam Nanao (Bobi) son of H. Kwaklei, age 21 years
3. Oinam Somorjit Singh, age 18 years son of O. Sanaton Singh
4. Master Nongthoujam Somarjit Singh, age 11 years son of Lukhoi Singh
It was revealed that the innocent young boys were their way to collect some materials like sands for smearing the bamboo made wall of a house with mud which is under preparation for a proposed marriage ceremony. Fortunately enough, our mission succeeded and four boys were released without much delay. The news of safe release of their children brought a sigh of relief and smile in the vexed faces of local women, who were deeply brooding over the uncertain fate of their children. The apprehension and angst wrote large in their faces spoke a volume about the fake encounter killings perpetrated by state actors that have already claimed many innocent lives in recent times. This is being a common phobia engulfed the psyche of phobia engulfed the psyche of every mother whose son has been picked up by security personnel in the state.
Prior to the detention of the young children and several times people of Manipur are facing the problem and in this context letter was communicated to concerned authorities –

'Cory only true queen we had'
MANILA - The Filipino nation paid tribute to former President Corazon Aquino on Wednesday with one priest describing the ex-president as "the only true queen the Filipino people had."
In his homily at the Manila Cathedral in Intramuros, Fr. Catalino Arevalo, SJ, pointed out three attributes that made Aquino a great leader: her selflessness, her faith and her courage.
He said Aquino put love of country above self and family, which endeared her to the nation. He pointed out that Aquino was a woman of prayer who always turned to God whenever she faced trial or hardship. Finally, he said Aquino possessed courage and abiding loyalty.
"It was a strength that others could lean on. It was always there, it never wavered. It was never broken,' Arevalo said.
He said the greatest tribute given to Aquino were the thousands of Filipinos who lined up for hours, braving the elements, just to show their love for the mother of the nation.
"These words are for the mortals with bruised hearts who have lost the mother of the people....Perhaps a little less elegantly, the seminarian told me last Monday, she was the only true queen our people had ever had, and she was queen because we knew she truly held our hearts and in gentleness and greatness of her own," he said.
The funeral Mass for Aquino started at exactly 9 a.m. with Balanga Auxiliary Bishop Socrates Villegas, a close friend of the Aquinos, as the main celebrant.
Among those seen attending the Mass were Vice-President Noli de Castro, East Timor President Jose Ramos-Horta, former presidents Fidel Ramos and Joseph Estrada, Senators Panfilo Lacson, Aquilino Pimentel Jr., Rodolfo Biazon, Alan Peter Cayetano and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Bayani Fernando.
