Storify in solidarity with Azza Soliman and other women human rights defenders targeted for speaking out against injustice

Lebanon

The thing about gaming is you can’t quite explain the immersiveness of it to non-gamers. And I speak not about mindless arcade games you play to pass the time (although I think time-passing on a screen is totally legit. Play on, Candy Crushers).

Stand in solidarity with Azza Soliman and other women human rights defenders targeted for speaking out against injustice!

The final hearing in the trial of Azza Soliman will take place on 24 October 2015.
