This video is of a talk by Thulani Maseko, a human rights layer and pro-democracy activist from Swaziland, given to an audience at Canadian Crossroads International in Toronto about the current crisis in Swaziland.

Despite the introduction of a new constitution in 2005, Swazis who voice opposition to the current political structure are still harassed, arrested, and tortured.

Thulani Maseko, an expert in human rights and democracy in Swaziland, was arrested in 2009 for publicly discussing the democratic struggle in Swaziland. He has been an active member of the pro-democracy movement in Swaziland for almost two decades and has handled a number of human rights cases in Swaziland. He is currently completing a one-year Fellowship in Washington DC, US, as part of the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program.
