Speak Right Now: commuters in Antwerp Central stop for a minute to think and act for human rights thanks to Fedactio Antwerp

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 a report of one of the events in Antwerp.

On Friday 7 December Fedactio Antwerp put up a stand in Antwerp Central to promote human rights in the context of the project Speak Right Now. Hasty travelers were informed through the numerous flyers at their disposal. Those with more time were invited to participate in the Amnesty International writing session. To reward their efforts, volunteers of Fedactio Antwerp offered them a piece of cake and cup of coffee. Together, almost 150 letters were written.
Behind the writing tables, various testimonials, both of victims and of professionals, were projected on screen. Amongst others, a Syrian refugee was interviewed as well as Kati Verstrepen, president of the Ligue for Human Rights, Ernest Sagaga of the International Federation of Journalists, children’s rights’ commissioner Bruno Vanobbergen and Talha Yildiz of the platform Humanitarian Help and Solidarity. The initiative was lauded by the commuters and received many positive comments.
