The NZ Centre for Human Rights Law, Policy & Practice at Auckland Law School, the AUT Law School and Amnesty International Aotearoa New Zealand invite you to a first-hand account about what is happening in the Philippines from long time human rights defender Wilnor Papa.

Wilnor Papa, Campaigns Manager for Amnesty International Philippines.

For close to two decades Wilnor Papa has been the face of Amnesty International and its human rights campaigning in The Philippines. Whether fronting up to media or at Senate inquiries, advocating behind the scenes with decision makers, or undertaking training of activists Wilnor has been at the forefront of encouraging The Philippines to respect human rights at home and advocate for human rights on a global stage. Now under the Presidency of Rodrigo Duterte, this human rights defender has been targeted for campaigning to counter attempts to reintroduce the death penalty and to halt the thousands of extrajudicial executions within the deadly “war on drugs” currently raging.

An inspiring campaigner in the middle of a volatile human rights crisis, Wilnor Papa has much to share about effective activism and his experiences on the frontline.
