Sur le projet:

Protection International a lancé et organisé l’exposition photographique « For Those Who Died Trying ». Le projet avait pour but de sensibiliser à la cause des défenseurs et d’honorer la mémoire de ceux qui ont sacrifié leur vie pour défendre les droits humains et l’environnement en plaçant le portrait de chaque défenseur à l’endroit exact où il fut assassiné ou enlevé.

Cet exposition présente les portraits de 37 défenseurs kidnappés ou assassinés en Thaïlande réalisés par le photographe Luke Dugglebly. Les photos furent prises dans le nord, le sud et le nord-est de la Thaïlande. La musique accompagnant le projet est composée par le musicien Canadien Frank Horvat

Protection International a inauguré, ‘For those who died trying’ à la Place des Nations à Geneva le 9 Mai 2016 à la fois que ​l’Examen Périodique Universel de l’ONU de la Thaïlande. Le projet a été co-sponsorisé par SIDA et soutenu par le gouvernement Canadien en Thaïlande.
