We will post the updates on our website soon.

Human rights history walking tours in London, such as the Suffragette, Black history, and more. London is full of history. We will be walking to different London landmarks to witness the history of human rights.
These tours will be open to volunteers, and the guide will be booked in advance.
Discussions with young people on ‘activism through art.’
Activism has many formats, and the use of art is a profound method. Art is not only an abstract way of acting but also a way of showing solidarity. We will discuss the art pieces that demonstrate the violation of human rights and try to find ways to show solidarity.
Research on International Criminal Law and Rome Statute’ mass killing of political groups’ and why it is not covered in the term ‘genocide’.
This research will try to identify the core elements of genocide described in the Rome Statute and analyse the reason behind setting ‘protected groups’ and why political groups are not one of them. The outcome of the research will be published on our website.
Please contact us if you wish to be part of the research team.
Research on the violation of disabled people’s rights and their struggles.
Disabled people are often isolated, and their rights are repeatedly violated. We want to research disabled people’s rights regarding ECHR decisions and share the outcome on our website.
Talented activists’ training.
This will be a training series for our volunteers to improve their skills and learn new ones in order to benefit the company.
After completion of the training, we will apply the new skills to our projects.
This will be seen in the form of creating podcast series and making video edits for our social media accounts.
The training will start by addressing the following topics:
Video editing training
Public speaking training
Discussion on the limitation of freedom of expression in line with hate crimes: What are the limits?
Freedom of expression and hate crimes are in absolute conflict. Hate crimes are at their highest records on social media. In the case of these vocalisations of hate, many argue that freedom of speech is essential. But do we know where freedom of speech and the effects of hate begin and end? We will discuss the types and forms of hate crimes, the groups who are facing the hatred and how to stop said crimes, including ways to report them.
We will be preparing documents for each attendee to read before this discussion.
Amnesty International “Oppressor and Oppressed” Panel
We are organising a panel with Amnesty International on Islamophobia; this event will focus on the violation of human rights towards Muslim people.
The details of the event will be decided soon in a meeting with Amnesty International and we will keep you posted.
