RAPBS in collaboration with our friends from RRAN and RAC will stage a series of readings in Human Rights Week.

People from all walks of life will read from a list of charges calling the Australian state to account for its failures to uphold international human rights conventions and treaties such as the Rights of the Child, the Convention against Torture and the Refugee Convention.

Participants and contributors include Tess Allas, Iqbal Barkat, Tony Birch, Melissa Lucashenko, Michelle De Kretser, Amala Groom, John Highfield, Al Poulet, Baden Offord, Kim Scott, David Whish-Wilson, Arnold Zable, Uncle Jack Charles.

The readings will be combined into a short film for international circulation, produced by Steve Thomas.

We invite all members of the public to participate in the film.

Please wear black clothing on the day.
