"I was honoured to receive an invitation to speak at the March and Rally for Human Rights in Vienna. I hope all of you who will be in Vienna will participate in the March. The conference and the March in particular are a great opportunity to unite everyone involved in the fight against AIDS at a defining moment in the history of the response."

--Michel Kazatchkine, Executive Director, Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, June 11, 2010


IS THE HUMAN RIGHTS MARCH AND RALLY IN YOUR CALENDAR?

The March begins at 20:00 ON TUESDAY, JULY 20 at SCHOTTENTOR U-Bahn 
station, an easy subway ride from the conference venue. Head straight 
there after the sessions end on Tuesday, or come early for pre-march 
activities beginning from 18:30. Don't miss the live performance by 
Annie Lennox that will follow the march and rally that evening!


HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

The most important way is to march with us and bring your friends!  You 
can also get involved by:
- setting up a booth for your organization during the pre-march 
activities from 18:30 at Schottentor,
- setting up a March and Rally Station at a conference session or 
satellite event you are involved in before or on July 20. We will 
provide promotional and placard-making materials.
- helping us recruit volunteers. We need extra hands on July 20!
