Everywhere around the world people go to the streets to stand up for their rights and beliefs. Even though the goals of these different movements are wide ranging, similarities can be found.
Together with happyChaos, De Balie and Human Rights Watch you will dive into this topic through an interactive program: a dialogue between activists, experts, artists and clicktivists. Where they stood, where they stand and where you stand in 2020. What makes or breaks a mass movement? We speak with guest such as Elvin Rigters (frontman Kick Out Zwarte Piet), Lennart Tiller (Extinction Rebellion) and Yaqiu Wang (HRW China and Hong Kong researcher)
Human Rights Weekend
Human Rights Watch, De Balie, and partners present the eighth edition of Human Rights Weekend. Find out where you stand and learn more about human rights, by participating in a weekend of films, discussions, and more. Meet film directors, Human Rights Watch researchers, journalists, and others and discover your position on topics such as the link between human rights violations and your clothing, the struggles involved in being intersex, and the use of protest as a tool for change. The event covers a wide range of countries, from France to China and from Bangladesh to Chile. Join us in Amsterdam, and find out where you stand.
All programs will be in English.
