Difference Day Honorary Title for Freedom of Expression to Raif Badawi
Nina Scholz accepted the Difference Day Honory Title in behalf of Raif Badawi at BOZAR, The Brussels Centre For Fine Arts. Some pictures of the ceremony and Nina’s acceptance speech.

One of the highlights of Difference Day, May 3 in Brussels, was the awarding by the rectors of VUB and ULB of the Honorary Title for Freedom of Expression to Saudi blogger and activist Raif Badawi.

Badawi is in jail in Saudi Arabia; his wife, Ensaf Haidar, awaits the outcome of her asylum procedure in Canada. So the price was accepted by their friend, Vienna based political scientist Nina Scholz.

Some pictures of the ceremony, the homemade clip by Ensaf Haidar, and the acceptance speech by Nina Scholz can be viewed here.
