Imagine Human Rights

International Human Rights Day

Saturday 12/11/2010

March 12pm-1pm

Hing Hay Park (King & Maynard) to Downtown Seattle

Rally 1pm-1:30pm

Victor Steinbrueck Park (north of Pike Place Market)

On Saturday, December 11, 2010, we peacefully gather for a march and rally in downtown Seattle to commemorate the 30 articles of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.  Vast accounts of human rights violations are committed everyday, with no respect or regard for human rights.  On this day, we demand those responsible for crimes against humanity to be held accountable.

Please join us in a peaceful demonstration, where we honor victims of human rights violations at home and abroad.  We march towards a new day when the ideas of justice, freedom and human rights are no longer confined to our imagination but realized throughout the world.

Gather at Hing Hay Park (King & Maynard) in the International District at 11:30am.  We will proceed with a march through downtown Seattle along 4th Ave to Victor Steinbrueck Park (north of Pike Place Market).
