    Discussion with Amnesty International (French) Executive Director Beatrice Vaugrante and Documentary Screening

    You are invited to a discussion with Beatrice Vaugrante, ED of Amnesty International Canada (French Speaking), followed by the documentary Voyage en barbarie by Delphine Deloget and Cécile Allegra, which won the 2015 Albert Londres Award. 

    Why does the Mediterranean sea carry so many ghosts? Why is Europe unable to welcome them properly? Why is Europe not taking notice of those who are wounded? Something is happening on the other side of the Mediterranean, something dreadful, unknown, and extremely difficult to unveil. East Africa, an enchanting and mythical land where the Nile takes its source has now turned into a giant trap. Since 2008, thousands of young Africans have been kidnapped, then sold to Bedouin traffickers and deported to the north-east of the Sinai desert, in Egypt.
