CAPE ANN FORUM PRESENTS
Deputy director for the Middle East and North Africa, Human Rights Watch
To mark the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Cape Ann Forum is hosting Human Rights Watch’s deputy director for the Middle East and North Africa, Joe Stork, to speak on the revolutionary upheavals now sweeping the Arab world and what they mean to us.
From Tunisia, Egypt and Libya to Yemen, Syria and Bahrain, young Arab men and women have risen up to challenge deeply entrenched, repressive regimes with varying degrees of success but few signs of a let-up. In August the protests spread to Israel as Jewish and Arab activists set up tent camps to call for reforms there. Filed under:
