Evacuate Human Rights Defenders from Libya

đź“… Bologna | 26 - 27 January 2024

Evacuate #HumanRightsDefenders from Libya!

@refugeesinlibya is inviting you to discuss possibilities of evacuation, solidarity on the routes, documentation, protection and legal litigation.

Refugees in Libya protested for 100 days in front of the @refugees in Tripoli, Libya.

On the 10th of January 2022, the protest was brutally dismantled and hundreds of the refugee activists punished with imprisonment in the Ain Zara detention center.

In July 2023, after 18 months of torture and forced work, 221 comrades were released from prison, but most of them are still in Tripoli facing destitution, lack of medical care and the constant risk of arbitrary detention and physical violence.

The Network Alliance with Refugees in Libya (ARiL) is now launching a tour in various European cities, with events aimed at informing about the situation in Libya and recognizing the refugees as human rights defenders.

The 2-days event in Bologna is the starting point of this transnational mobilization.
