Peace Brigades International – The Netherlands will be hosting a new Human Rights Café edition on the 15th of May. The Human Rights Cafe is part of the Shelter city Bike Challenge event.
The past elections of 2017 were marred by insecurities and violence, said to be carried out by men in uniform. During this Human Rights Cafe, Francis will shed light on the violations of human rights and the work he is doing to ameliorate the situation in the slums of Nairobi. He is inquiring and documenting situations of police brutality and extrajudicial killings during and after the elections. Because Francis has important information and documents about extra-legal killings, he constantly receives threats. What are the challenges of defending human rights?
These and other questions will be discussed during this event.
