Emilie Palamy Pradichit, Founder & Executive Director of Manushya Foundation, and Nada Chaiyajit, Manushya's Human Rights Campaign Advisor, are fighting for real corporate accountability at the UN BHR Forum in Geneva, denouncing Thailand's weak NAP-BHR, calling States to #StopNAPping and to enact #mHREDD, standing up against corporate capture and pushing back on SLAPPs against human rights defenders in Thailand! ✊

#StopSLAPP 📢 Nada will speak at the session, "Defending rights: the essential role of HRDs for business accountability", sharing with the international community how unfair SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) lawsuits are weaponized against human rights defenders in Thailand.
