Various non-governmental organizations, human rights activists and
victims of abuses will hold a Press Conference on Thursday, April 6
at 7:00 PM at The President Wilson Hotel, following the conclusion of
the V Human Rights Parallel Forum, sponsored by Mothers & Women
Against Repression (M.A.R.)
In contrast to the silence within the halls of what has until now
been the headquarters of the U.N. Human Rights Commission, voices
will be raised outside the "Palais des Nations" calling attention to
the dismal human rights' record of regimes such as the ones that rule
Cuba, China, Sudan and Zimbabwe, to name a few, where in spite of
brutal repression and systematic violations of fundamental freedoms,
are actively lobbying the U.N. General Assembly for votes to obtain a
seat in the newly created Human Rights Council.
DATE: Thursday, April 6, 2006
PLACE: President Wilson Hotel
47 Quai Wilson
TIME: 7 P.M.
Activists and victims of human rights' abuses from various
countries will offer their testimonies at the event.
Media representatives are invited to the Reception at the end of
the Press Conference.
