Cartooning for Peace and the Permanent Representative of the Organisation internationale de la francophonie to the United Nations Office are pleased to announce the presentation of its exhibition “Human Rights, still some way to go?” at Palais des Nations in Geneva from 5 to 15 March 2019 as part of the spring celebrations of the Francophonie and the 40th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.
“The exhibition highlights the founding principle that we are all born free and equal in dignity and rights. It invites visitors to give practical effect to the vision of hope, freedom and universalism conveyed by the Universal Declaration,” said Commissioner Mijatović. “The exhibition cartoons also pay tribute to all those fighting on the front line to protect human rights”. With 30 newspaper cartoons, the exhibition reminds us of the relevance of the Universal Declaration against a background in which its values and principles are currently under serious threat.
The exhibition is presented on March 7th at 1:00 pm with
Patrick Chappatte (Switzerland), Vice-President Cartooning for Peace’s Foundation in Geneva
Hani Abbas (Syria/Palestine), member of Cartooning for Peace
