This Thursday we are presenting “Human Rights Challenge: Responding to Extrajudicial Killings in the Drug War,” side session at the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs meeting (CND), Vienna International Centre. The session is our first since being recognized as an accredited NGO by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) last year.

Vice President Leni Robredo of the Republic of the Philippines has honored us with a video to be presented there. The video and event were covered by TIME this morning.

Country and agency delegates to the CND or UN in Vienna, as well as UN-accredited NGOs and media, are able to attend the session. Here is the event flyer:

And here is Vice President Robredo’s video.

We will post further video from the event this week, including the video sent by Thailand former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, Chairman of event cosponsor the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD), and of the full session.
