Human Rights Festival 2019

Human Rights Festival 2019

By Margaret Fish

Over four days from 21 to 24 March the festival included poetry, art exhibitions, a film festival, the social forum, activism row, a music evening and We the People walks on the Sunday. In addition, there was a marquee with food stalls and a market where creatives sold their wares.

ProBono.Org had a stand in Activism Row and on Saturday morning we held consultations for people wanting assistance with family law issues. Our family law attorney and child law consultant, along with volunteer attorneys from Werksmans were on hand to provide advice.

Meanwhile, in Musina in Limpopo our refugee project manager attended a Human Rights Day annual soccer tournament that commemorated human rights with a special focus on refugee and migrant rights.
