Sunday Roundup: Graffiti, Congo, Sudan, J. Stiglitz, J. Silva

Sunday Roundup is not a new rendezvous on the Sama Gazette but it is one on Max Dana’s Blog. Last Sunday she started this new series of posts about what caught her attention during the week. It sounds like our weekly Friday Digest which Max said it inspired her but we have to admit her news roundup is far more detailed than ours. We still have to learn a lot from her, we know that! So we decided to cross post it here. You can also read this post on ...

EHHR Barefoot Campaign: ‘One pair of shoes for a month’

Ten days ago we posted about the Every Human Has Rights and CIVICUS new campaign: Barefoot Against Poverty. By going barefoot against poverty, the campaign invites us to take a first step for human rights, thinking about people who barely have food to put on their table, let alone shoes to put on their feet. Simple, effective, easy to understand and easy to do. Back to when all started for us. In 2008, Max Dana supported the Every Human Has Rights ...

About the campaign (more on official website): This year, ...
