http://www.ngosummit.org Human rights dissidents to gather for major summit in New York on September 21-22, 2011: “We Have A Dream: The Global Summit Against Discrimination and Persecution.” Taking place next to UN Headquarters in New York at same time as opening of the UN General Assembly and the commemoration of the Durban conference on racism.

 

Bringing together human rights activists from countries with some of the most abysmal human rights records—including China, Syria, Sudan, Zimbabwe, North Korea and Iran—the conference will produce draft UN resolutions for world leaders to adopt on governments that commit genocide, torture, discrimination, and systematically violate civil, religious and political freedoms.

Mariane Pearl, an author and vocal advocate for the rights of women in conflict zones, and the widow of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, will headline the summit’s session on empowering women.

The stellar line-up of summit presenters also includes Yang Jianli, a senior Chinese human rights activist and veteran of the 1989 Tiananmen Square uprising; Rebiya Kadeer, the voice of China’s oppressed Uyghur minority; Jacqueline Kasha, a courageous defender of LGBT rights in Uganda; Grace Kwanjeh, a Zimbabwean women’s rights activist tortured by the Mugabe regime; Ahed al Hendi, a Syrian writer jailed for opposing the Assad regime; and John Dau, a survivor of genocide in Sudan.

Prominent dissidents, former prisoners of conscience, and cyber-activists from Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Egypt, Vietnam and Burma will also participate. http://www.ngosummit.org
