On September 1, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights will host an event in Copenhagen to cast light on the recent developments and present the case of human rights defenders and BCHR’s president, Nabeel Rajab, who is currently in jail based on charges related to his tweets.
After the screening of the documentary "Bahrain: An Inconvenient Uprising", representatives from various NGOs will give an overview of human rights violations in the MENA region, in the wake of the Arab Spring, particularly focusing on the repression against human rights defenders, peacefully exercising their right to freedom of expression.
A call for civic action will be launched to support the campaign #ReleaseNabeel.
