Today, I actually made it to the International Tribunal of Conscience (ITC) – and I am very glad I did!It took place in the Comision de Derechos Humanos del DF, which was not communicated very clearly, but nevermind: There was a long list of very impressive/touching testimonials on the abuse of the rights of migrants and indigenous people. They ranged from
South Africa to the Sahara, Chiapas and the Philippines, and the form of presentation included speeches and Power Point presentations up to film documents, a skype call-in, a little play and even an opera!
The final verdict of the tribunal was actually not real final and read very fast in Spanish, but from what I got from the translation it covered a wide range of topics and was still very much to the point.
I will post a more detailed report, also on the church meeting where I went in the morning, but that may have to wait until I reach Puerto Vallarta tomorrow (Sunday) night…
Well Stefanus, I think in every field/industry or worlds (like science) people do not spend enough effort and time in communicating or organizing things. Reason is for me, that those activties are taken for granted…and reputation if “things just work” is not considered to be mentioned. Hope to read the full report soon and CU back in Germany, Karsten
