United Nations to commemorate Human Rights Day with Concert
- Feature performance by Soca Queen and Women’s Advocate Alison Hinds
The United Nations (UN) System in Guyana will host a free Human Rights Day Concert “Speak Out for Rights” at the National Cultural Centre at 19:00 hrs.
This concert will mark the anniversary of the adoption by the General Assembly of the landmark Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The United Nations recognizes that everyone can advance the struggle against injustice, intolerance, and extremism.
By using a cultural approach to bring attention to human rights the event will engage leading local musicians, spoken word artistes, dancers and prominent personalities to spread the message that “...each one of us, everywhere, at all times is entitled to the full range of human rights....”
Women’s Advocate and Goodwill Ambassador for the International Federation of Business and Professional Women Alison Hinds will be the feature performer of the evening. Known for her popular anthems such as “Roll it Gyal”, “Togetherness”, “King and Queen”, and “Faluma”, Hinds works as an advocate for various causes inclusive of women’s rights.
Limited tickets for the concert can be obtained from the National Cultural Centre from Saturday, December 6 on a first come first serve basis. Tickets can also be won during promotional giveaways on popular television and radio talk shows. The event will be streamed live on the United Nations Guyana website – www.un.org.gy.
