Bianca Jagger NEW DATE
- Event Start: 15th May 2018, 8:00pm
- Event Type:
"The Massacre of Nicaraguan Students by the Ortega-Murillo Regime"
Born in Managua, Nicaragua in 1950, Bianca Jagger has, in her own right, become one of the most formidable women in social change movements today. In her early life, she left home to study political science in Paris on a scholarship from the French Government and has subsequently gone on to be awarded four doctorates, honoris causa and, amongst other roles, become a Council of Europe Goodwill Ambassador and a Member of the Executive Director’s Leadership Council for Amnesty International USA. As Founder, President, and Chief Executive of the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation (established 2005), she has dedicated her life to defending the human rights, civil liberties, and peaceful existence of those groups of people who are most at risk of being denied them. In particular, she has tenaciously advocated on behalf of indigenous people, women, girls, and death-row prisoners. Moreover, she has worked towards preserving the world which we are all so privileged to inhabit and has even been awarded the United National Earth Day International Award (1994) for her work in this area.
