Human Rights in Libya

Hassan al-Amin has worked in Libya for decades to expose human rights abuses and promote democracy. After Muammar Gaddafi’s security forces arrested and beat him in 1983, al-Amin fled to the UK. He then founded the website Libya al-Mostakbal. al-Amin will receive one of the 2013 Alison Des Forges Award from Human Rights Watch. (Photo: Human Rights Watch)
