To participate, kindly register online at https://forms.gle/eSoQVCVfQoJsRpc56.

#NoLockdownOnRights will weigh COVID-19 responses against the inalienable, universal, indivisible, and interrelated character of human rights and standards in upholding them, particularly in light of the observations of widespread and systematic human rights violations as well as a further shrinking of democratic space in the Philippines. First-hand testimonies, inputs from UN Special Rapporteurs and analyses by civil-society, human rights leaders will articulate perspectives and focus energy for the furtherance of promoting and defending human rights.

The details of the Zoom webinar will be sent one day before the event, on 28 May 2020, to the email address indicated in the online form.
