Human rights begin in our own environment, in everyday things. Thanks to them, we can freely express our opinions, participate in elections, receive adequate health care, and are protected from arbitrary state interference in our private lives. However, human rights are under pressure around the world. More and more governments are restricting our freedoms piece by piece. There are challenges in Austria as well.
On this evening, Heinz Patzelt, Secretary General of Amnesty International Austria, will give you a special insight into the current human rights situation in Austria and worldwide. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about Amnesty International’s human rights work and ask your own questions on the topic.
