Doomsday Clock News by Haris Ahmed
Common Wealth commissioned the incredible performance poet Haris Ahmed to create a poetic response to Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as part of Fly The Flag.
Fly the Flag is a project co-produced by Fuel that seeks to ignite conversations and remind us that even in times of crisis we must protect the rights of everyone.
Article 25 We all have the right to a good life, with enough food, clothing, housing, and healthcare. Mothers and children, people without work, old and disabled people all have the right to help. Simplified version by Amnesty International UK
Fly The Flag is a unique collaboration between arts organisations and human rights charities which celebrates and reminds us of the human rights we all share. Launched in 2018 on the 70th anniversary of the ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Fly The Flag is a reminder of the human rights we all entitled to, in particular raising awareness of the UDHR amongst young people and shining a light where human rights are violated. www.flytheflag.org.uk
