Global Human Rights Day Festival Martin Place, 2pm – 6pm Saturday, 10 December
Occupy Sydney invites individuals, families and inviting community groups to join us for a festival at Martin Place on 10 December – the Global Day of Action and Global Human Rights Day.
This family friendly festival will feature music, workshops, open mic, speakers and participation from a variety of community groups and associations in Sydney talking about global human rights and social justice issues.
The Festival will be held between 2pm and 6pm. The event is family friendly and all are welcome.
What has been so positive about Occupy Sydney is that it is an alternative space where diverse communities and individuals can come together to discuss ideas, issues and current struggles with the public in a public place.
The 10 December Festival will provide a positive opportunity for communities, families and individuals to connect with people in Sydney, and engage, discuss and share information about global injustice and human rights in a friendly, family orientated atmosphere.
Workshops from the Free School include:
Borders and Occupy
DIY renewable energy
A History of Radical Sydney
Community Renewable Energy
Discussion on Occupy Melbourne
Please leave info in the comments, or use the forum post here for organisational discussion for the festival.
