Share The World’s Resources (STWR) are hosting an online presentation and discussion about our campaign for Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Article 25 proclaims the right of everyone to adequate food, housing, healthcare and social security. But still today, millions of people subsist without sufficient means for survival. Even in the wealthiest nations, we are witnessing a continuing rise in levels of hunger and deprivation – further exacerbated by food and energy price shocks due to the war in Ukraine.
Our presentation will outline the current reality of extreme poverty across the world, and the need for human rights to be protected by the rule of law within every nation. We suggest that only the massed goodwill of ordinary people calling for Article 25 can bring about an end to poverty in a world of plenty.
Participants are invited to discuss these issues and join a growing global movement that calls on governments to share the world’s resources.
Time: 7pm (GMT) on Wednesday 25th January (convert timezone)
