Croydon Amnesty International Present a Free Performance of ‘Even If We Lose Our Lives’
Saturday 26th April @ 8pm
St Peter’s church, St Peter’s Road, South Croydon, CR0 1HG
Scripted by Christine Bacon
‘I don’t really understand why we were targeted, because I was not doing anything
controversial. I was simply helping women, saving their lives.’
This script tells the stories of three Afghan women human rights defenders. Afghan women are too often portrayed as faceless, passive victims who are powerless to change the grave human rights abuses they are regularly affected by. But this ignores the countless Afghan women who are fearlessly working to promote women’s rights and support their communities.
