3canal concert - ReThePublic - Amnesty International Small Places Tour

For Republic Day in Trinidad and Tobago, 3canal, in conjunction with Amnesty International, will bring you their 2nd Annual "ReThePublic- Know your Rights", concert as part of Amnesty International's Global Initiative Small Places Tour events. The initiative is part of the commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The idea is Think Globally Act Locally.

This concert is on MON 22nd SEP at Queen's Hall. Tickets TT$150 & TT$200. 1-868-623-0982 for more info. Part proceeds from this event will be donated to the Jeffrey Chock Medical Expenses Fund.

Trinidadian photographer Jeffrey Chock has fallen ill in Toronto and is in urgent need of surgery which is estimated to cost approximately TT$300,000 (US$47,000).

Jeffrey has captured our life and work and energy in Entertainment, Media and the Arts from his unique perspective for many years, so let us please come together to support him in his time of need.

Online donations can be made at (T&T credit card holders can use "00000" as the zip code!). A bank account has been opened for Jeffrey. Donations can be made via deposit at any Trinidad and Tobago branch of Scotiabank — cheques should be made out to "M. Mahabir". The account number is #4004891.

The following is distilled from Amnesty's website.

On December 10, 1948 the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories."
