Of course, human rights activists can never pass up the chance to have a demonstration, especially when spending the day near so many foreign consulates.

GOTB organizers and participants are students and activists who embody a keystone of Amnesty International's mission to undertake research and action focused on preventing and ending grave human rights abuses. At the next GOTB event, we'll spend the morning learning from a speakers panel comprised of experts, survivors, and people immediately impacted by human rights violations. They will provide us with a greater understanding of the issues for which we'll be demonstrating in the afternoon.
