Watch: Kumi Naidoo on Climate, Rights and Human Survival #BIAF19

Amnesty International’s secretary general Kumi Naidoo delivered the NGO’s annual lecture a couple of weeks ago in the Europa Hotel as part of Belfast International Arts Festival.

He picked up the title and theme of the UN’s New York summit in September: Climate, Rights and Human Survival. Formerly the executive director of Greepeace International, the South African human rights activist took up the top post at Amnesty in August 2018.
