What does it mean to be brave?


Today, people across the world are taking enormous risks to stand up for our right.

They could be teachers, students, political opponents, factory workers, journalists, lawyers or so many others. They could be you, your friend or your relatives. But they’re being harassed, tortured, jailed and even killed – just for daring to speak out for what’s right. Without their courage, our world would be less fair, less just and less equal.

We must stand with human rights defenders worldwide – and do all we can to keep them safe from harm. We can find the spark of courage in all of us to speak out for what’s right.

We can tweet. We can protest. We can write letters. We can be a witness.

And together we can act as one alongside human rights defenders, to fight injustice and build a fairer world.



  1. Malala's story makes me feel guilty about all the times I didn't want to go to school! Here is a girl who nearly died along with her friends for just that chance. Malala,you're my hero! Pakistan has raised up a lioness!

  2. Leadership is marketed by elites as being their puppets. True leaders are never recognised by mass media. Your voice will never be heard by mass media only ordinary people. Remember only the latter matter.
