A Voice from the Ground: Venezuela

  • Date: 21/03/19
  • Time: 19:00 – 21:00
  • Location: Lola Bikes and Coffee, Noordeinde 91, Den Haag

Join Justice and Peace and Lola Bikes and Coffee for the first series of talks for Ride for Rights with special guest speaker, Beatriz, a Venezuelan journalist and human rights defender. Beatriz works on the front line of defending press freedom in Venezuela, which is seeing a growing repression against journalists and the freedom of press and information. She will tell about the situation from her perspective as a journalist, her challenges, life, work, and hopes.

The evening will also give you the chance to get to know about Ride for Rights Netherlands, a human rights and cycle movement, with this year hosting a one day cycle challenge through the Netherlands to draw attention to human rights and activists who commit themselves daily to protecting them.

This event is organised by Hague-based human rights organisation, Justice and Peace Netherlands, together with Lola Bikes and Coffee.
