Message from Fray Raul Vera Lopez, OP, Bishop of Saltillo (Mexico) at the occasion of the Second National March for Dignity organized by Mothers searching their disappeared sons or daughters and seeking justice.
The administration of juvenile justice in many countries faces various challenges, including punitive approach negative impacts as well as lack of quantitative and qualitative indicators to measure, evaluate and monitor progress made. Dominicans call the UN and Member States to take action.
Togather with several other faith based organizations, the Dominican Délégation to the United Nations expresses its views on four key human rights issues in Sri Lanka: 1) Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs); 2) Peace and Reconciliation; 3) the Rights of the child; 4) Persons with disabilities.
Wants to know more on thse issues, please read the official UN working document.
The Delegation of the Dominican Order submitted a written statement to the 22nd session of the UN Human Rights Council on the Human Rights situation in Pakistan. Children rights, Women's Rights and Education are key issues for the future of the country.

Even in the midst of a global recession, there is a real need of seeking the common good and making real the concept of the family of nations as well as finding innovative ways to implement responsibilities for respecting, protecting and fulfilling human rights worldwide. This is what the concept of International Solidarity is about.
