Residents celebrated Human Rights Day with a difference at an inaugural festival on Saturday 21 March.

The event was held at Imperial Primary School from 11:00 to 22:00 and had a host of live acts, games and exhibitions for patrons to enjoy. “The event could not come at a better time considering the recent spike in violent crimes being committed against innocent people within our community and their basic right to freedom of movement being negatively impacted directly as a result of this violence,” says event director Rozario Brown.

Thousands of people attended the event throughout the day.

The event was put together by the same organisers of the Mitchell’s Plain Festival, held at Westridge Gardens in November.

People’s Post also attended the event
