Wire Magazine July-September 2017: Brave
Find out about our new campaign Brave to stand with human rights defenders who are threatened just for peacefully speaking out for human rights. Read the story of Esther Kiobel from Nigeria who sees her case with the oil company Shell go to court; she’s accusing Shell of colluding in her husband’s killing over 20 years ago. From Naples, Italy, we hear about the forced eviction of the Gianturco Roma settlement. We’re also looking at the impact of our campaign for worldwide abolition of the death penalty, human rights friendly schools in Kenya, and the situation of media workers in Turkey who are jailed for doing their job. Also, we hear about the Ambassador of Conscience Awards 2017 winners – the rights movement of Indigenous Peoples in Canada and singer and activist Alicia Keys.
