1988 Human Rights Now! rally in Philly

Here is a news reporter named Dan Mechum inviting everyone to come to the Human Rights Now! rally in Philadelphia. In the background is beautiful Penn's Landing along the Delaware River!

The Rally was on September 18, 1988 at Noon and it was located at the Judge Lewis Quadrangle on 5th & Market Streets in Philadelphia, PA.

From Wikipedia: "Human Rights Now! was a worldwide tour of 20 benefit concerts on behalf of Amnesty International that took place over six weeks in 1988. Held not to raise funds but to increase awareness of both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on its 40th anniversary and the work of Amnesty International, the shows featured Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman, and Youssou N'Dour, plus guest artists from each of the countries where concerts were held."
