This ‘Possibilities’ conference is one with a difference, featuring threatre, music, song and dance, not to mention famous activists and promoters of peace and human rights.
Following Kila’s performance, Mary Robinson received a rousing welcome when she spoke this afternoon, focusing in on a few lines in the UN Declaration of Human Rights and our duty to community.
She phrased it better than the original which states: “Article 29 – Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible.”
She spoke about the need for “a greater sense of shared responsibility for the implementation of international human rights law.”
She was followed by five speakers from communities in Ireland including Mayo’s John Monaghan and Dublin’s Rita Fagan, the former unpaid, the latter unpaid, both working in communities.
