We are hosting a joint fringe event with Amnesty International at the Labour Party Conference in Liverpool this year.
Violence Against Women Activists: Defending the Defenders
Thousands of brave human rights activists face persecution and violence around the world – and often the worst of it is directed at women. Just last month, Saudi Arabia announced that it would seek to execute Israa al-Ghomgham, a female human rights activist, for “providing moral support to rioters”. This story is repeated all over the world.
In support of Amnesty International’s Human Rights Defenders campaign, we will be co-hosting a panel discussion about violence against women activists and how we can defend against this.
Date: Tuesday 25th September
Location: Concourse Room 3, ACC Liverpool, Kings Dock, Liverpool,
- Kate Osamor MP (Shadow Secretary of State for International Development)
- Owen Jones (Journalist)
- Kate Allen (Director, Amnesty International UK)
- Idil Eser (Former Director, Amnesty International Turkey)
With more speakers to be announced.
