Beyond Covid-19. The war in Libya is not on lockdown

3 Apr, 2020 | Press Releases

Live stream today, 3 April 2020, at 19.00 GMT+1 (Brussels time).

In this particular time, everyone’s eyes are on the COVID-19 emergency – rightfully so. The emergency presents us with new challenges, which have a deep impact on global politics and society. While our daily lives may feel like they are somewhat “on hold”, human rights violations have not been suspended: on the contrary, they may even intensify due to the implications of this pandemic. 

Therefore, we decided to organise a weekly panel discussion to not forget about important human rights issues, bringing them directly to peoples’ houses through easily accessible social media.  

This second episode will focus on the ongoing war in Libya. The panel discussion, that will be chaired by Frej Fenniche, MENA Regional Representative of NPWJ, includes as speakers: Emma Bonino, founder of NPWJ, Italian Senator and former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ahmed El Gasir, Member of the Libyan NGO Human Rights Solidarity, Mohammed Tantoush, civil society activist currently working with IOM/Libya, Maurine mercier, journalist convering Tunisia and Libya.

The live stream is today, 3 April 2020, at 19.00 GMT+1 (Brussels time).
