Human Rights Under Your Nose

Share

Human Rights are at the root of many issues at home and abroad, historically and contemporary.

The Forum dealt with Haiti and the cross-border conflict with the Dominican Republic. The root of the current conflict stems from an ongoing dispute over construction of a canal in Haitian territory targeting water from a river that runs along the border.

The Forum also discussed poverty issues due to the cost of living which includes household energy cost.

Far more common are cases where family poverty is confused with neglect. Children removed from house-holds due to poverty issues such as inability to pay utility bills. Other states have benefited from policy changes that forced law enforcement to be more prudent about which children are removed.

Another environmental Think Tank is announced for December 9th at The Reed apartments in Tampa at 1240 Ray Charles Blvd.

Citizens attend a Think Tank on the environment, a human rights issue.
