CCLP Worldwide attended to the opening day of the 23rd session of the Council of Human Rights of the United Nations.
NAVI PILLAY, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that she hoped that the Council would be able to take tangible action to stop the escalation of violence in Syria, which had become an intolerable affront to the human conscience. Ms. Pillay also expressed concern about ongoing violence in other regions of the world. In addition, the global financial crisis, which had not been borne by those who were primarily responsible for it, had increased inequalities and undermined the fabric of society.Regarding the work of non-governmental organizations, Ms. Pillay said that it was depressing to observe policy debates and legislative measures which severely undermined non-governmental organizations in many countries around the world. Civil society remained vital to advancing the human rights agenda both at the national level and internationally.
In this framework, The Delegation headed by Bertrand Thibert was representing CCLP Worldwide as accredited NGO, with Special Consultative Status to UN ECOSOC. The opening debate was the opportunity to several NGO to provide their own statements and points of view, about the general situation of Human Rights in the world, the particular situation in Syria or the specific topics of the afternoons : access to health and rights of the migrants.
Due to extra discussions on the Syria conflict, the CCLP Worldwide delegates were not in a situation to declaim their statement, which finally was delivered as a written statement to all present delegations.
