Visste du att i Tunisien kan man som våldtäktsoffer tvingas gifta sig med sin våldtäktsman?   Det finns en tunisisk lag som gör det möjligt att som våldtäktsman undgå straff genom att gifta sig med sitt offer. Det här gör att det är offret som straffas och att rättvisa inte skipas! Det vill vi i Amnesty ändra på! Kom och ta ställning för kvinnors rättigheter och rättvisa tillsammans med oss under vår kulturkväll.   Under kulturkvällen kommer vi blanda musik och konst med information om situationen i Tunisien. Det kommer även gå att köpa enklare tilltugg.    På scen: ***Rrriotsamba Saravá***  Med bombastiska slagverk kommer ett av banden i musikföreningen Rrriotsamba att få golvet att gunga av dansvänlig samba! Rrriotsamba är en feministisk musikförening för kvinnor och transpersoner och spelar i sammanhang där mänskliga rättigheter lyfts! Ni kanske såg dem på Amnestys arrangemang "Dansa för mänskliga rättigheter" på Södra teatern?! Nu spelar de igen för Amnestys räkning.    Och KITTY KITTY är ett nytt ansikte i musikvärlden. I sina låtar berör hon ofta ämnen som man vanligtvis inte pratar om. Debutsingeln "Killer Eyes" som släpptes förra året handlar om revansch, som kommit ur en självupplevd traumatisk händelse, ett övergrepp. Med sin musik vill hon inspirera, få folk att lyssna, prata och att känna.   Konst: - Mer info inom kort!   FRIVILLIGT INTRÄDE! Alla eventuella intäkter från inträdet och delar av intäkterna från konstförsäljningen går direkt till Amnesty International.   Länk till eventet på Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/467632310107806/   Arrangörer: Amnesty Internationals kvinnorättsgrupp 88
