Without human rights defenders, there would be no human rights. Despite being attacked for who they are and what they do, these brave individuals stand up to powerful actors violating human rights. Today we celebrate four Brave Human Rights Defenders. Chaired by Naomi McAuliffe, Head of Amnesty International Scotland.

Authors Reading: Yaba Badoe, Christopher Edge, Stuart MacBride and Zaher Omareen
