Right now, all around the world, human rights are under attack.

In Iran, protestors like brothers Vahid, Navid and Habib are being prosecuted, abused, and even killed for calling out the injustices of their government and authorities, exercising their right to protest.

In Hong Kong, Chow Hang-tung is in prison in Hong Kong for organising a vigil commemorating the victims of the Tiananmen Square crackdown.

When Russia invaded Ukraine, Aleksandra spoke out and peacefully opposed the war. Once a mental health advocate, writer and musician, she is now facing 10 years in prison.
