We have lined up speakers involved with the different campaigns. It is now time to try to join the dots in these different campaigns for justice.

We hope that the event will help the campaigns to expose those who abused their positions of power and colluded with a number of agencies to suppress people’s rights. We also hope it helps the different campaigns win new recruits and gain fresh momentum to secure the justice these campaigns have long sought.”
