About me

Kevin Neish, Victoria, B.C.  Canada
phone (250) 595-3991
I’ve done human rights and human shield work all my life (53 yrs).

  • 1966 and 1990 visited Cuba on solidarity/work tours.
  • 1989 acted as a human shield for 5 exiled leaders of the Guatemalan opposition group RUOG, including Rigoberta Menchu, when they returned for peace talks. We dealt with paramilitary death threats and a car bomb.
  • 2000 and 2009 worked as an official observer in elections in El Salvador.
  • 2002 volunteered with the International Solidarity Movement to act as a human rights observer and shield in Bethlehem during the Easter  reinvasion of the West Bank.
  • 2009 and 2010 worked as a human rights observer in a Colombian prison where union and peasant leaders were held, and stayed with one of their threatened families as a protective witness.

In a nutshell, I just don’t like bullies, regardless of their colour,  religion, size, nationality or race.
