Activist - Isayas Taklebrhan

Isayas Taklebrhan is an Eritrean human rights campaigner living in Israel. As a refugee himself, Isayas is all too aware of the discrimination faced by Africans living in Israel. In a country where refugees are called 'infiltrators' and a 'cancer', Isayas is attempting to change the situation on the ground. He escaped Eritrea after being imprisoned and tortured and is now trying to gather support and build a network to improve the condition for those fleeing war torn countries. Isayas works tirelessly to organise sit-ins, marches and challenge the construction of the world's largest detention centre for refugees.
