Q&A with activist Suciwati Munir and director Josefina Bergsten, led by Yvette Lawson (Amnesty International).
Suciwati Munir is acclaimed by TIME Magazine as an "Asian hero", known in Indonesia for her unceasing fight for justice for her husband Munir Said Thalib, Indonesia's best-known human rights activist, who died of arsenic poisoning on a flight from Jakarta to Amsterdam. Suciwati (42) has been trying for nearly seven years to get the former head of the Indonesian secret service locked up for the assassination of her husband. Suciwati derives her unflagging energy from love. "Love for my husband, my children and my friends, love for the people who fight for justice, and love for my homeland."
