Additional information from the organizers:

The 2010 theme for Human Rights Day highlights the role of everyday human rights defenders – reaffirming that we all have a role to play in ensuring respect for human rights and to act to defend discrimination, whether in Europe or elsewhere. But what can YOU do in situations of everyday discrimination or in situations as harsh as the one depicted in “Children of war”? Tips and testimonies will be shared by prominent human rights defenders from all walks of life.

Moderator: Reed Brody, spokesperson Human Rights Watch
