COURAGE IS CONTAGIOUS

After Berlin (in May), Dresden (in June) and before Paris, the travelling monument “Anything to Say?” will stop in Geneva during the Human Rights Council’s 30th session.

Bronze statues of Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning, standing on chairs and made by the artist Davide Dormino, will be exposed on the Place des Nations from 14 to 18 September 2015.

“This is a monument to the courage of three persons who said no to the implementation of a global surveillance and to lies, who chose to tell the truth”, the artist explains.

The work of art is a tribute to freedom of expression and information, outside of all political polemic.

Snowden, Assange and Manning: “Traitors” or “heroes” of our time? The public has to say. The exhibition is intended to be participatory, providing the public with the opportunity to express itself by getting up on the fourth chair that has been left empty.

The Swiss support Committee to “Anything to Say?” invites you to the inauguration of the exhibit.

MONDAY 14 SEPTEMBER, AT NOON, AT PLACE DES NATIONS IN GENEVA

The support Committee for the event in Geneva is composed of the NGO Press Emblem Campaign (PEC), of the International Centre for Peace and Human Rights (CIPADH), Pilar Ackermann, Fabio Lo Verso, Charly Pache and of the representative of a group of citizens that contributed to the realisation of the project, Marco Benagli.
