Nowadays Advocates

by | Nov 17, 2020 | Advocacy | 0 comments

As part of the 19th Geneva Film Festival and International Forum on Human Rights (FIFDH), Professor Davide Rodogno and David Brun-Lambert met two contemporary advocates Perla Joe Maalouli and Alaa Salah. These two human rights activists and advocates are today emblematic figures of the Revolution in their respective countries.

Perla Joe Maalouli is one of the voices and one of the faces of the 2019 Lebanese Revolution. Sitting down in the ring, at the centre of the protest, with the protesters, facing the police and the security forces, she read poems in front of the Public Electricity building. She drove 300 Lebanese women to intercede with the militaries and avoided a possible blood bath. Perla Joe Maalouli is 27 years old, she is a filmmaker, a musician, a poet, a bigmouth, a rebel-born person. Let’s meet this contemporary advocate in the following podcast:

Alaa Salah is a Sudanese student, an anti-government protester and a symbol of the Sudanese Revolution. She gained world-wide media attention from a picture of her taken by Lana Haroun that went viral in April 2019. The image of Salah has been dubbed as “Woman in White” or “Lady Liberty” of Sudan. In the following podcast (available in French only), the young advocate native of Khartoum explains how and why she has become at 22 years old one of the voices of the Revolution.
