A short film following a few people from Irish civil society as they travel across Ireland, hosting workshops and meetings to raise awareness about Ireland’s upcoming Universal Periodic Review.
In October 2011, Ireland will be examined for the first time by the United Nations on it’s human rights record under the Universal Periodic Review or UPR. Seventeen leading organisations have come together to make sure that the United Nations hears your views about Your Rights. Right Now.
In February 2011, the Rights Now campaign will be traveling around Ireland talking to individuals and organisations, as they prepare to write a report documenting failings they have found in Ireland’s Human Rights Record. Free, public information events will be held across the country. Get involved.
