Corin Redgrave, alongside many others founded Peace & Progress – A party for Human Rights in 2005. This action was taken in recognition that the post war political consensus on the universality of Human Rights had been broken.
‘Now, human rights require an advocate within the political arena. We need a party of human rights.’
Peace & Progress A Party for Human Rights, 2005
This meeting is an opportunity to explore several questions: What has the impact of the sustained attack, driven by the ‘war on terror’, been on fundamental human rights? How is it now affecting us all in the UK? And how can we meet the challenge to defend Human Rights?
We will be asking for a voluntary donation of £5 on the door to cover costs.
