Without Rights

"A right delayed is a right denied." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

István Takács, a representative of the HCLU (Hungarian Civil Liberties Union - a human rights watchdog NGO), recently contacted me as he needed music for a documentary on the life of Roma people in the east side of his country.

Some background:

"During the aftermath of murders in Tatárszentgyörgy, Péter Juhász and Bence Békés began visiting villages around Ózd to support the Romani people living in the area. With advocacy tools provided by the HCLU, they joined in helping these communities advocate for themselves and fight discrimination more effectively. We have documented their work, this film is the first piece in documenting their work and revealing what they found."

More details behind the documentary can be found on http://tasz.hu/en/roma-issues/without-rights. The film can be viewed below in English subtitles.
