Defending Rights & Dissent Asks UN Special Rapporteurs to Take Action On J20 Prosecutions - Defending Rights & Dissent
On November 13, 2017 Defending Rights & Dissent sent a letter to the UN Special Rapporteurs on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association and Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression. In our letter, we alerted both special rapporteurs to the ways in which the trials and arrest of the inauguration protesters violate international human rights norms.
