Turning Point: Face to face with boots, water canons, batons, riot police and impunity

Over the past few years, many people have asked me why I decided to study International Human Rights Law instead of the more appealing, and perhaps more lucrative, corporate or criminal law. I've always been reluctant to explain what inspired me to do what I do, but I recently decided to let the cat out of the bag in an article published on the 4th Issue of DUNIA Magazine.

The article is titled, Turning Point: Face to Face with Boots, Water Canons, Batons, Riot Police and Impunity. Incidentally, it comes at a time when many innocent civilians and pro-democracy protesters in the Middle East and North Africa are facing a similar situation in what has been termed the "Arab Spring."

It's my wish that this piece inspires oppressed persons around the world to rise above oppression and become advocates for nonviolence, human rights and fundamental freedoms. Now more than ever, the world is in dire need of fierce nonviolent advocates to promote and protect respect for human dignity.

Enjoy the read on and keep in mind that comments and feedbacks are welcomed. You're encouraged to subscribe for a hard or e-copy of DUNIA.
