Join Amnesty International South Africa at the Constitution Hill Human Rights Festival

Join Amnesty International South Africa and other leading Human Rights organisations as we #StandUpForHumanRights at this second Human Rights Festival hosted at Constitution Hill.

Amnesty International South Africa is participating in the Constitution Hill Human Rights Festival from 21 to 24 March 2019 at Constitution Hill. The festival highlights the work of social justice organisations and the importance of civic activism.

2019 marks the 25th anniversary of our country’s freedom. It is a poignant moment therefore, to acknowledge the immense sacrifices that have been made by countless people in the quest for human rights, both nationally and globally.

The Constitutional Court will form the backdrop of the four-day festival which will include interactive activist booths hosted by social justice organisations over the weekend of the festival. The festival is packed with interactive workshops, panel discussions, film screenings, poetry readings, art exhibitions, theatre & dance performances and a dedicated kiddies area.

It kicks off on Human Rights Day – 21 March 2019 – with exhibition openings and free tours of Constitution Hill, paying homage to all those who lost their lives in the struggle for freedom, particularly those who perished at the hands of the apartheid forces at Sharpeville on 21 March 1960.

You can find us at the Activism Row from 23-24 March 2019. Come say hello!

The entire festival is free and open to the public.

Registration is necessary for the We the People Walk on Sunday, 24 March 2019, through Webtickets.

Tickets are also required for the tours and the music concert; these can also be downloaded for free from Webtickets: https://www.webtickets.co.za/ or picked up at your local Pick ‘n Pay.
