International Human Rights Day Sydney

A large number of solidarity groups including supporters of West Papua joined in solidarity with the "Unite with Aboriginal Peoples' Defence of Human Rights March" in Sydney on International Human Rights Day. After speeches at Town Hall Square supporters heading through the city to Circular Quay, stopping at various intersections to watch traditional Aboriginal dancing  and speeches.  The city echoed to chants of "Always was always will be Aboriginal land", "Refugees are welcome here" and "Free West Papua" and "Free Palestine". An inspiring event.

The theme of this years Human Rights Day is the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the two International Covenants on Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, both which were adopted by the UN General Assembly on the 16th of December, 1966.
