The rally featured keynote addresses by Mary Robinson, executive director of the Ethical Globalization Initiative and former UN high commissioner for Human Rights and president of Ireland; Mark Heywood, head of the AIDS Law Project, South Africa; and Peter Piot, UNAIDS executive director, among others.
