Sunday was the end of the Brighton Festival and the last day of performances around the city, including a picnic in the north of Queens Park.

Monica Ross has been travelling between the communities of the UK and reciting the UN Declaration of Human Right from memory.

This was her 31st time on stage and her first time in Brighton, and she was met by a tide of people willing to participate.

Susan Diab and Maria Michael read Article 13 because, 'It was an article that had personal influence for our families and their history.'

Susan read in Armenian, which she was taught over skype by an Armenian tutor, and Maria read in one of her native tongues, Greek.

Article 13 reads, 'Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State' and 'Everyone has the right to leave any country, including their own, and return to their country.'

The event hosted Amnesty International, Greenpeace, Womens International League of Peace and other peace-seeking organisations.

It started with the musical entertainment of Marika Hackman and Early Ghost, who were sadly missing two thirds of their band.

Monica took he stage in her dark suit and started reciting the preamble, as a line of people who wanted to contribute filled the area behind the stage.

When someone faltered or paused, Monica was standing by to prompt and encourage.

The entire recital was accompanied by sign language and the abundance of children present made the entire picnic appear the perfect example of an inclusive society.

It was a brilliant, if sombre, ending to the Brighton Fringe and was a fitting tribute to the Declaration on the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International.
