***Unfortunately due to illness we have had to cancel this event. We are hoping to run it in the new year***

Amnesty International’s Milena Marin reveals the cutting-edge digital investigation behind the BBC Africa Eye report on the executions of women and children by Cameroonian soldiers and more on how Amnesty is using tech to expose human rights abuses globally.
