On Human Rights Day (Monday 10th December 2018), ATD Ireland invites you again to #StandUp4HumanRights to #LightTheWay on the 17 #GlobalGoals of the #2030Agenda.
Join the "Long Walk to Freedom - Episode 4", the fourth symbolic walk of a series of 16 walks which take place each year from 2015 (Episode 1) to 2030, on Human Rights Day!
The now 12 years' journey to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be a long journey to free all human beings from the fear of terror and the fear of need! All the defenders of Human Rights are already walking on a long walk to freedom, as nobody is is free until we are all free! The #GlobalGoals are for sure part of the legacy of Nelson Mandela and many other Human Rights Key Defenders! As we mark #Mandela100 he will be marching with us wherever he is!
On the 10th of December 1948, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, France. The "Episode 4" of the 'Long Walk to Freedom" will also mark this 70th anniversary!
The Candlelit Walk will last around 1 hour (time of gathering, walk and short speeches or readings at some stops). The Starting point is the Dublin Mansion House. The walk will end at the Garden of Remembrance.
The walk is prepared by the Dublin group of the international Human Rights and Anti-Poverty Movement ATD (All Together in Dignity Ireland - www.atdireland.ie). The particpants will be invited to carry a banner with the message "Human Rights for All with 17 Global Goals" and signs of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

When: Monday 10th December 2018 at 4.30pm
