PROTECTING HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS
Giving human right's defenders a voice | Human Right Defenders
The situation for human rights defenders concerns us all. Front Line Defenders reported that 321 defenders were killed in 2018. 77% of those killed were defending land rights, the environment or indigenous rights. All of them were standing up to protect their families, their communities and societies. Protecting human rights equals protecting those who fight for human rights and against those who want to violate them.
