This month's newsletter contains more interesting information about human rights, including Yaroslav Mamchak's report of a recent international review of Australia's human rights record by a group of UN member countries – the Universal Periodic Review. John Howells also tells how Vulture Funds operate, and why Australia needs to legislate to prevent these funds subverting our humanitarian aid to poor countries.
