Rights Defenders Need International Protection
With three human rights defenders abducted in less than one week by people suspected of working on behalf of the Zimbabwean authorities, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the Open Society Institute called today for an immediate halt to abductions and for the abductees to be freed immediately.
At an event marking the 15-year anniversary of the Media Monitoring Project (MMP) on 27 November 2008, MMP director William Bird announced that the organisation has been renamed Media Monitoring Africa (MMA).
