Guyana Equality Forum hosts “Walk for Equality” for Human Rights Day
December 7, 2012
Red Thread, Justice Institute Guyana and the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination, on behalf of the Guyana Equality Forum (GEF), all believe in the inherent dignity of each and every human being.
Human Rights Day, observed on December 10, is an opportunity to celebrate human rights, highlight challenges, and advocate for the full enjoyment of all human rights, for everyone, everywhere.
This year, the spotlight is on the rights of all people — women, youth, minorities, persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples, the poor and marginalised — to make their voices heard in public life and political decision-making processes.
Members of the public are invited to join our “Walk for Equality” with any banners, tee-shirts and posters reflecting support for full equality and human rights of all Guyanese.
The Walk for Equality will take place on Saturday, December 8, 2012. It will start at 15:30 hrs so persons are asked to gather at the assembly point in Parade Ground, Middle Street in good time. The route will take us west along Middle Street, south into Main Street; east into Church Road; south into Avenue of the Republic; continue south into High Street; east into Brickdam; north down Camp Street; west into Middle Street and ending at Parade Ground.
After the walk, representatives of the GEF convening organisations and guest speakers will share their messages for Human Rights Day with the gathering at Parade Ground.
