HRD, Lawyer
موارد نقض حقوق بشر:

Eloisa Samy is a human rights lawyer. Since the beginning of the anti-government demonstrations in Brazil in June 2013, she has worked to protect protesters.


The challenges and threats faced by human rights defenders in Brazil remain very high, particularly for those working on issues of land, environment, indigenous peoples, LGBTi rights, corruption and impunity. Many HRDs have experienced death threats, physical attacks, arbitrary arrests and lawsuits. The high number of killings is of particular concern and takes place against a background of widespread impunity.
