Eleanor Roosevelt, 1958

'Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person... Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.' Eleanor Roosevelt, 1958

Steven Neary's detention ruled unlawful

I haven't had a chance to read the judgment in full yet, but Jerome Taylor at the Independent was kind enough to send me a link.  You can read the ruling here:

Hillingdon also tweeted me a link to their statement, which is here:

More thoughts to follow...  In the meantime, here's my wishlist for accurate media reporting on the case!
