Hope to see you there!
Its about time. Count me in. Looking forward to getting more involved in South Africa. Would also like to establish a chapter in a rural area in Lesotho, where the service is badly needed.
Great.i would like to work on grassroot level on protection and guidance .
We would like to express our strongest sympathy and support to this very useful and important initiative. We are a research, training and advocacy centre based in Tirana, working currently on a new project which seeks to improve access to justice for rural women in Albania, providing them free legal aid and engaging them in strategic litigation, advocacy campaign on matters that concerns them: land rights, water and health services, job creation and entrepreneurship as well as sustainable rural development. We are looking for partners worldwide that can help us with both: know-how and funding. Thank you!
This campaign is essential, l would like to gather some stories about the environmental injustice encountered by women with particular reference to water.
I will develop a special web resource, e-book, and also develop talks and presentations and encourage fundraising. Fadeke
A post was merged into an existing topic: A call for ending FGM and early marriages in Tanzania
the forestry sector in Kenya is witnessing human rights abuses to local communities especially ingenious communities and i feel should contribute to enhance their access to justice
We discussed here in Themis and we are available to engage in the following goals/activities. The ones in bold are the most prioritary ones:
- Generate greater visibility for hundreds of network members who demonstrate courage and innovation in their grassroots work around the world;
- Accelerate progress on access to justice and legal empowerment commitments by using SDG implementation plans, Open Government Partnership National Action Plans, national justice plans and national development plans;
- Stand up to those who oppress justice defenders
- Documenting, spotlighting and speaking out against oppression can offer real protection against harm in the short term.
- Enhance protections for justice defenders
- Build trust between governments, civil society and justice defenders
- Courageous conversations between governments and civil society can open dialogues and empower people to know, use and shape laws.
A very great initiative. We interested in supporting regional this campaign in West Africa and in Ivory Coast. Human rights abuses and opening more civic spaces for citizens participation. Also the right of the vulnerable to access information is is key in making justice for all. We are interested in using internet and online media to achieve real freedom of expression, of association and full development of the human capital whatever his financial and social background are. We are located in Ivory Coast, West Africa
Great to see a kenyan active.True Forest have been invaded .Sad is by the community.Unfortunately Leaders can do nothing for politicians are in awe of loosing votes .Its all about self.Its never about all of us.
Please do not think that I am negative thinking individual and or, a pessimist. Nothing of the kind. I rise at 0500 hours and work 16 hours every day.
The entire bureaucratic structure has sold its soul to the devil. The election commission is sold-out, the law enforcement agencies, the supreme court of India, the CBI, everyone, everyone is making money and is paid handsomely for their betrayal of the country - India. The world today is full of despots and we have all failed miserably to combat them.
The highest to the lowest office in India has been betrayed and demeaned by those appointed to it - they have betrayed their oath, the country and everything in it. All the family jewels are in the hands of petty thieves and mafia groups and, MOBS rule supreme. Money cannot pull us out because the most crooked and fraudulent practitioners of the law would corner every bit of it.
Over the past decade India has received $40,000 crores (please convert this into billions to suit your denominations) as development aid - 92% of this has gone in, unaccounted for - this is a government report not mine. Yes, I stand with you in everyone of your activities, but I have no solutions to offer neither in the short term nor, in the long-term.
I write only as an expression of my solidarity with you and hoping that before I leave this world, some change will come in.
Please remember, I am an illiterate, ignoramus not fit to sit in any eminent or learned company. In fact it is arrogance on my part to be responding to your call. I am sad, very sad. We of the older generation worked very had to introduce change but, the country was hijacked by mafia mobs and thieves, cheats. They have nothing to lose. It may be rewarding to go through the latest book on school education written by our eminent, learned and esteemed Prime Minister.
With prayers and warm regards
Congratulations Coco and team!
I’m looking forward to watching the launch via live-stream next week!
