Sydney opportunity to hear first-hand from UN Human Rights Chief

 

The UN High Commissioner For Human Rights, HE Excellency Navi Pillay, will be the guest of honour at a major public event to be hosted by the Australian Human Rights Commission in Sydney on Monday, 23 May.

 

Commission President Catherine Branson QC said Human Rights 2011 will be one of the High Commissioner’s only public events during her official Australian visit.

 

“Those interested in human rights issues will have the opportunity to hear first-hand from leading human rights advocates in a lively and interactive panel discussion involving the High Commissioner and prominent and well-respected Australians such as the ‘father of reconciliation’, Patrick Dodson, and Director of the Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Inc, Paris Aristotle,” Ms Branson said.

 

“Discussion will focus on major human rights issues in Australia, including constitutional recognition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, asylum seeker policy, and international human rights issues.”

 

Human Rights 2011 will also include a special performance by one of Australia’s leading dance companies, Bangarra Dance Theatre.

 

This free public event will be held at the Sydney Town Hall, George Street, Sydney, on Monday 23 May 2011 at 5.00pm for 5.30pm – 7.00pm.

 

Spaces are filling fast.

 

Those wanting to attend also have the opportunity to ask a question of the High Commissioner or the Panel via the Australian Human Rights Commission’s website.

 

Details of the event can be located at http://www.humanrights.gov.au/hr2011/ and will be updated on a regular basis.

 

To register your attendance please go to the website.

 

Up to the minute information on human rights is now available on twitter at twitter.com/AusHumanRights.
