Speak Right Now: Brussels commits to the defense of human rights

Share it:
To celebrate the 70th birthday of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Fedactio launched its project Speak Right Now, with events in defense of human rights across the whole of Belgium. Below, you may find an overview of the most important events in Brussels.

Awareness Workshop about Human Rights on 4 December
On Tuesday 4 December, Fedactio Brussels organized an Awareness Workshop in partnership with Amnesty International. The workshop was aimed at youngsters between 16 and 30 years old. During the event, around 15 youngsters had the opportunity to discover and discuss the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration.

The discussion took place in small groups with one moderator jotting down all of the relevant ideas. At the end of the event, Karim Ganji took the floor. As Amnesty International responsible for the project around the 70th birthday of the Universal Declaration, he gave more information about the survey Amnesty International did amongst youngsters between 18 and 34 years old, which demonstrated that the majority (67 %) did not know the Universal Declaration.

With the organization of this workshop, Fedactio hopes to fill this gap.


Writing Session Amnesty International on Wednesday 5 December in Fedactio’s main building
On Wednesday 5 December interested parties were invited to write letters to enquire the protection or liberation several female human rights activists all over the world. Between 12:00 and 18:00 the participants wrote almost 100 letters in total, snacks and drinks at their disposal to encourage them further.

Hopefully we will see you on the next writing session!
