The NGO Coalition on Human Rights have organised a march today to commemorate World Human Rights Day.
The march will begin at 10am from the Flea Market ending in a rally at Sukuna Park and is the culmination of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence, from November 25 to December 10.
World Human Rights Day is celebrated annually on December 10 to mark the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948. This year is a significant milestone for the UDHR as it marks its 70th Anniversary.
Human Rights Day is a day to celebrate and advocate for the protection of Human Rights globally. Since its launch in 1997, the NGOCHR now includes members such as the Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre, Fiji Women’s Rights Movement, Citizen’s Constitutional Forum, FemLINK Pacific, Ecumenical Centre for Research and Advocacy, Drodrolagi Movement, Social Empowerment and Education Program and observers, Pacific Network on Globalisation, Haus of Khameleon and Diverse Voices and Action for Equality.
