1) Guyanese activists mount court challenge to ‘cross-dressing’ ban
February 20, 2010, marks the second annual commemoration of World Day of Social Justice, which recognizes, in the words of United Nations General Assembly Resolution (A/RES/62/10), that “social development and social justice cannot be attained… in the absence of respect for all human rights and fundamental freedoms.”
2) Time to Register for the Conference! Also, We need Spanish translators and places for people to crash!
Click on “Conference” above to see the panels and breakout sessions, and most importantly, to register for the conference. We have a tight budget this year, and limited space for all of the meals.
Also, we are desperately seeking some Spanish speakers who would be willing to help with some translation throughout the conference. Basically the task is to be part of a team of people switching off to follow around a pair of people – one of the lawyers arguing the marriage case in Argentina and the other a trans, indigenous rights activist from Argentina. Should be really interesting!
If you have an extra couch or something, we have law students coming from all over who could use a place to crash.
