Join Amnesty International to take action for Sombath Somphone, a victim of an enforced disappearance at the hands of the Laos authorities.
Sombath is an agricultural specialist. He established an environmental NGO and has supported village communities who have been displaced by development activity.
He was abducted in December 2012 from a Laos police road block. He has not been heard of since.
The Laos Government must act now to ensure the safe return of civil society leader Sombath.
Come along to this demonstration and stand in support for the freedom of Sombath.
Find out more in Amnesty’s report on Sombath’s disappearance and an article featured in the Sydney Morning Herald, ‘Wife’s plea: free my abducted husband’.
