Sombath Somphone STOOD UP for Lao civil society, pioneering the first CSO and co-hosting the first, AND ONLY international civil society event in Laos.

Soon thereafter, he was taken from a POLICE POST just a few hundred metres from Sunday’s CIVIL SOCIETY FAIR in Vientiane.

He has never been seen again.

Sombath STOOD UP for Lao civil society. Please STAND UP for him!
