Freedom Walk

A group of individuals will come together to mark the International Human Rights’ Day on Sunday 10 December, 2006.

Organizations and individuals all over the world have been celebrating this day since 1950. The adoption and proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed on 10 December 1948 at the United Nations General Assembly.

In Singapore, a group of human rights advocates will commemorate this day by walking through along the busiest part of the country to raise the awareness of human rights among Singaporeans. The group hopes to pass on a message of hope and encouragement for all to respect and honour the rights of all individuals.

The group will gather at Hong Lim Park and will proceed to walk in small teams, relay-style, from Hong Lim Park, down Orchard Road, Tanglin Road and end off at Margaret Drive.

The public is welcomed to cheer us on or come and speak to the “walkers” at any point during the event.

The details are as follows:

Start point: Hong Lim Park
End point: Margaret Drive (outside Queenstown Remand Prison).
Date: Sunday, 10 December 2006
Assembly time: 4pm
Finish time: 6.30pm
