26 Apr Tackling the politics of fear and hatred
Clive Stafford-Smith is one of the world’s most respected, awarded, and recognised human rights lawyers.
Listen to Clive talk about the death penalty, or drones or some of the things ‘civilised’ governments do in our name, and you will understand why he is so persuasive and effective. His belief is that people should never be judged by the worst 15 minutes of their life. And governments should never be let off the hook for acting illegally because kidnapping and locking up innocent people is wrong.
Reprieve, the UK charity he set up, does extraordinary work with a tiny staff of lawyers who uncover new evidence and hold governments to account.
For their contribution to a fairer world, they have my gratitude and support.
How about yours?
