Leo Igwe arrested in Nigeria – HumanistLife

HumanistLife, the BHA’s new website, offers a varied selection of stories. Bob Churchill from the BHA says,

The aim is that www.HumanistLife.org.uk will become a major node for expression and discussion of issues close to Humanism on the web.

We want to provide a space where our members and supporters, affiliated humanist groups, staff and Distinguished Supporters can build a content-rich, quality site, giving many humanist and other perspectives on current affairs, society, science and culture, as well as philosophical, artistic, Leo Igwevideo-based and other contributions. We want to bring together everyone who shares our broad worldview to present a bold, diverse vision of modern Humanism: its interests, its concerns and its inspirations.

One of the latest reports is about the courageous Nigerian Humanist, Leo Igwe, whose campaign against the “witch-hunters” who target defenceless children, and other human rights violations, have attracted threats against his life.

Postscript: Today (5th January), Leo Igwe was arrested in Nigeria.
