How far would you go to defend religious freedom?
As the plane takes off, you take one last look at your home. The country that you love so dearly, whose people you have devoted your life to protecting as a human rights lawyer, vanishes into the distance. The government has beaten you, imprisoned you, and, finally, rejected you wholesale. You know that you are free, now– but it is the bittersweet freedom that comes with exile.
As the plane climbs higher into the clouds, you know that your work is far from done. You’re going to keep telling the story of your arrest, imprisonment, and torture as long as you can, to whoever will listen. You can’t be in Vietnam any longer, but you’ll tell the story of its suffering, which is your suffering, until you can return home.
This is the latest chapter of Nguyen van Dai’s story. Come to Pursue Justice Live to hear how it began, from Nguyen Van Dai himself.
This year we’ll be meeting on 14 September in London and 21 September in Birmingham – book your place now!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
