WATCH: ESCR-Net film Huma Rights For and By the People: Securing Economic, Social and Cultural Rights from Below!
In June of 2011, ESCR-Net, in collaboration with the Media Mobilizing Project, launched the online version of the documentary film project-- Human Rights For and By the People: Securing Economic, Social and Cultural Rights from Below!
This film visually represents the experiences and expertise of members of our Social Movements and Grassroots Working Group, in sharing common challenges to making human rights a reality, the power of the human rights framework, effective strategies, and successful examples of collective advocacy. We hope these experiences will help enrich our ongoing collaborative efforts to make economic, social and cultural rights a reality for all.
We send warm thanks to our Social Movement Working Group members who offered their time and insights to make this documentary a success. Special appreciation to Shivaani Selvaraj, Irit Reinheimer and Rebekah Scotland and for assisting us through this film production every step of the way.
