Keith was awarded Amnesty International Aotearoa’s 2012 Human Rights Defender award over the weekend.

We could devote pages to the campaigns, issues and individual cases (not just high profile but the many more that didn’t make headlines) but instead we invite readers to browse through some of Keith’s posts and remember all the work he did before becoming an MP.

It was an honour to work with Keith and we look forward to the next opportunity to catch up with his latest work.

For those that didn’t see Keith was on Firstline this morning you can catch the interview here.
