“FROM DOCTOR TO DEFENDER: HOW DR MUKWEGE TOOK CHARGE OF HIS PATIENTS, HUMAN RIGHTS AND PROTECTION”

Prior to receiving the Prix Solidarité prize in Belgium this Thursday 16 October, Dr Denis Mukwege, Congolese gynaecologist and world renowned expert on repairing rape patients internal physical damage, had the chance to sit down with longstanding partner organisation Protection International (PI) and explain how through his work, he evolved from a doctor to a defender of human rights – and the security risks that came along with this transformation.

For Those Who Died Trying - Thailand’s Murdered and Abducted Human Rights Defenders

The project looks to remember those who died defending human rights and protecting the environment by placing a portrait of the human rights defender, where possible, at the exact place he or she was murdered or abducted.

It is vital, for the victims and their families, that their fight and their death is not forgotten and left un-recognised. Ultimately, those responsible must be brought to justice. Recognising those who died trying as HRDs and a better administration of justice are critical steps to end these killings.
