ILFRY confirmed in the General Assembly the leadership of Thomas Leys. There was the call for freedom for Maikel Nabil (finally released in January 25th 2012). The Resolutions of the GA highlighted a lot of important topics: Tahrir Square, West Papua, Sri Lanka, and Belarus. It was a unique occasion to meet dedicated and passionate people from as far apart as Lebanon, the Netherlands, Sweden, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Norway, Morocco, and Turkey itself talking about human rights and freedom.
Marco Cappa addressed his keynote about the common fight for democracy between YDE and ILFRY. He quoted MLK: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
