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.
