Collective Power! Regional Exchange of Thai and Indonesian HRDs

December 2018 marked a milestone for Protection International, with our first ever regional community exchange. Over 4 days in Southern Thailand, defenders of the Southern Peasants Federation of Thailand (SPFT) met with Indonesian defenders from six organisations of buruh tani (farm workers). The objective was to
foster a South-to-South learning exchange, bringing together stories of hope and sharing knowledge on the defense of rights in their respective communities.
