Welcome to My New Human Rights Blog
We stand with Joan, David and Sylvia stand with Joan, and all of us ‘ordinary people’ must stand with Joan. On Holocaust Day the dehumanising of those in terror must end, and we must turn again to democracy and the rule of law.
Dreams of Peace & Freedom evokes the streams that carried David Maxwell Fyfe on his journey and the river of rights and freedoms that flowed first from Nuremberg to Strasbourg, and then on into 75 years of liberty.
I have learnt over the past 25 years that whilst human rights lawyers are brilliant advocates for those they defend, they are, with a few exceptions, lamentable at speaking up for their own purpose, or educating others in the complicated business of rights, freedoms and responsibilities. This failure leaves the field wide open for those who wish to corrode and undermine those rights to grow the power of the executive.
