Join Amnesty International at Boston University for a special event with featured speakers Jitman Basnet, human rights lawyer and journalist, and Katherine Hughes- Fraitekh, Executive Director of Peace Brigades International USA. Basnet survived kidnapping and torture at the hands of Maoists and Nepal Army for his human rights activism. With the protection of PBI and international support, he continued to work for justice in Nepal even under threat. Learn about the methods, strategies, and tactics used to protect human rights activists in conflict zones around the world, and get a general overview of the work of PBI and Amnesty International.
