公民力量新聞組通知


由美國的人權基金會主辦的第二屆“舊金山自由論壇”將於9月29日在舊金山市的Regency Center (1290 Sutter St, San Francisco, CA 94109)舉行。

人權基金會於2006年建立,旨在關注世界人權議題,支持專制國家的人權人士的工作,推動全球的民主化。該基金會於2008創辦每年一屆的“奧斯陸自由論壇”,成為奧斯陸規模和受關注程度僅次於諾貝爾和平獎發獎儀式的國際活動。公民力量創辦人楊建利博士是人權基金會的資深顧問。

2012年人權基金會又創辦了舊金山自由論壇,第一屆的主旨演講人是緬甸民主領袖昂山素季女士。

目前公民力量正協助人權基金會在台灣建立亞洲第一個自由論壇。

敦請媒體蒞臨採訪報導第二屆舊金山自由論壇

Next Week!!!s San Francisco Freedom Forum To Feature Speakers Addressing Rwanda, Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine, North Korea, Cuba, and China

SAN FRANCISCO (September 22, 2016) — The 2016 San Francisco Freedom Forum, taking place on September 29, will bring together activists, entrepreneurs, reporters, technologists, and artists, united by their commitment to make today’s world a more peaceful, prosperous, and free place. The conference theme is “A Celebration of Noble Purpose.”
 
Programming begins at 9:30am at the Regency Center with talks from four speakers — a beauty queen using her platform to speak out against the Chinese regime, a Cuban activist committed to avenging her father!!!s murder and bringing democracy to her country, an investigative reporter exposing the crimes of Rwanda’s dictator, and a Syrian citizen journalist smuggling video footage out of ISIS-controlled territory.
 
After the first session, participants will join the Interactive Expo, where they can learn more about encryption, live video, countering censorship, information security, and virtual reality. At the Expo a group of North Korean defectors from Seoul will discuss their efforts to hack Kim Jong-un’s censorship system.

Afternoon talks include a Charlie Hebdo journalist still fighting for press freedom after fatal attacks on her colleagues, an Afghan tech entrepreneur encouraging girls to learn and work in computer science, and a defector who traveled back to North Korea to save her family. Participants will also hear from an international litigator fighting for the rights of the disenfranchised, a Ukrainian anti-corruption advocate, and HRF chairman Garry Kasparov. The conference will conclude at 7:00pm at The Palace Hotel with HRF’s 10 Year Celebration Dinner.
