International Human Rights Day at NULC

On Tuesday 17th December 2013 Students celebrated International Human Rights Day at NULC.

Student Richard Steventon, a keen supporter of Wise Up Action , Nathanael Smallman, Ingrid Schwartz and the college’s Equality & Diversity Advisor Theresa Kirkham Blair set up a stall in our Food Hall to share information about International Human Rights day with students.  They spoke about the need for all to be outspoken, to celebrate democracy and to challenge issues as they happen across the world so that we can change the lives of those struggling to a lead a life free from oppression. 

Students and staff signed Amnesty International’s online petition to pressure the American government to re-examine their imprisonment of Chelsea Manning, charged with leaking materials and information via WikiLeaks about crimes of war.
