Human rights defender
In May 2013, I went to Pakistan to meet human rights defenders. It was my first time in Pakistan and I found it a very complex country. We were very fortunate though that Sabeen Mahmud allowed us to use her space cafe T2F to meet human rights defenders and hear about the threats that they faced.
Sudanese human right defender Amin Mekki Medani is 76 years old and his health is critical. Despite this he is standing trial in Khartoum on charges of “waging war against the state” and “undermining the constitutional system” both of which carry the death penalty.
