Persembahan teater dan diskusi oleh Sisters In Islam
Walaupun sudah menginjak ke tahun 2016, kita masih mendengar soalan seperti: "adakah seorang isteri perlu taat kepada suami atau ibu dahulu?", "salah atau tidak jika isteri keluar rumah tanpa izin suami?", "adakah seorang isteri boleh menolak hubungan kelamin dengan suami?” Jadi bagaimana kita boleh mewujudkan keluarga moden yang harmoni yang setiap ahli keluarga sentiasa bekerjasama dan menghormati antara satu sama lain? Adakah impian keluarga moden yang mengikut prinsip-prinsip Islam ini boleh dicapai? Dengan persembahan teater bertajuk 'Pasang', arahan Azzad Mahdzir.

Sat 3pm
Forum on Convention Against Torture
"My government will never apologize for placing the safety and security of the Malaysian people first," the sentiment by our Prime Minister, Najib Razak is often echoed by people in Malaysia and in other countries. The notion that our safety must be preserved at all cost is not an alien concept and has become the foundation of many counter-terrorism policy post-9/11. While our staunch protectors insist that force and violence is a necessary component to combat terrorism, is it the best way out? Is torture the light that would guide us out of the shadow of terrorism?

2) Firdaus Husni, Bar Council of Malaysia
3) Melissa Sasidaran, Lawyers for Liberty
4) Dobby Chew, Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM)

Sat 4pm
Malaysia does not believe that all children should have the freedom from discrimination and the freedom from torture. Malaysia also doesn’t believe all children should have the rights to nationality, to free and compulsory primary education, and to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. Like everyone else, Malaysia has signed the Convention on the Rights of the Child. But we hold the 5 reservations above. What can we do better protect our children, not just the ones at home, but also the ones failed by the state? We gather a few of our most passionate children’s rights activists to tell us:
Panel: Hartini Zainudin on stateless children
Goh Siu Lin on unilateral conversion of children
Dorian Wilde on LGBT adolescents
Gloria Martinez on access to education
Sharmila Sekaran on juvenile justice
Moderator: Juana Jaafar

Sat 5.30pm
Presentation by Malaysian Bar
Bar Council Malaysia is renewing its call to the Malaysian Government to establish an Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (“IPCMC”). Join us for a reality check - how many cases of deaths in custody are reported every year in Malaysia? How many inquests had been done on these deaths? How many have fallen victim to police shootings and torture? Do we have laws to prevent this? And what exactly is stopping the government from setting up IPCMC?
