Newry Rainbow Community is hosting an Open Mic Night on Friday the 12th of December to sing out for human rights as part of the NI Human Rights Festival 2014 that runs from the 8th to the 13th of December.
Open Mic Night at NRC Centre Friday 12th December 2014
There’s an open invitation to singers and songwriters to come along and perform well known songs and anthems on Human Rights.
The event kicks off at 8pm on the 12th at the NRC Centre, 82a Hill Street, Newry and all are welcome. Admission is free.
Each year the 10th December is celebrated as Human Rights Day across the world. The date marks the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption and proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948. Civil society groups across the world use this date as an opportunity to celebrate and mark the importance of human rights globally.
Every year a diverse range of organisations across Northern Ireland have traditionally held events in the week surrounding this date to mark the occasion and highlight different aspects of human rights as they apply locally and internationally.
This years events include stand-up comedy by human rights activists, a Superhero Pub Quiz, discussions around the use of drones and restrictive libel laws. Other events remind us of discrimination groups in our society still face, whether women, the trans community, children and young people or Travellers, while others look at struggles beyond our shores, for Congolese women, campesinos in Peru, and others whether in Rwanda, Kenya or the Golan.

To Mark World Aids Day the NRC are holding a Film Night in the NRC Centre on Monday the 1st of December at 8pm.
Around 100,000 are currently living with HIV in the UK and globally an estimated 34 million people have HIV. More than 35 million people have died from the virus, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.
Today, many scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment, there are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition. But despite this, people do not know the facts about how to protect themselves and others from HIV, and stigma and discrimination remain a reality for many people living with HIV. World AIDS Day is important as it reminds the public and Government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.
Please come along and show your support.
