CALL FOR PARTICIPATION FROM OUR “GRASS ROOTS” ABOUT PEOPLE LIVING IN EXTREME POVERTY WHO ARE DENIED RIGHTS

At the 23rd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (June 2013), the Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Magdalena Sepúlveda, will submit a report on the human rights approach to participation of persons living in poverty in decisions that affect their lives. In order to see a brief description of what we need to do, please use the following link:

Some examples of what is being requested could be lack of inclusion, results of misuse of funds, gender inequality, denial of participation in governance, or discrimination against members of certain groups. If you wish, you could send me a one paragraph description and I will compile them. mjtsndngo@yahoo.com

2013 sounds a long way off but the sooner we do this the better.
