Global Action Against Enforced Disappearances

August 30 this year marks the 25th anniversary of the International Day of the Disappeared.

Around this day, commemorations will take place all over the world to honour the disappeared and their families as well as to campaign for the UN Convention against Enforced Disappearances. It is the first time that the International Coalition Against Enforced Disappearances (ICAED) organizes simultaneous activities on such a big scale. As of today, events have been confirmed in places as multifaceted as: The Philippines, Guatemala, Peru, El Salvador, Namibia, Iraq, Sri Lanka, Belarus, Spain, Morocco, The Netherlands, Georgia, France, Nigeria.

Join in and take action to eradicate enforced disappearances!
