17 October 2019 – International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

17 October 2019 represents an opportunity to acknowledge the efforts and struggles of people living in poverty, a chance for them to make their concerns heard and a moment to recognize that poor people are in the forefront in the fight against poverty.” United Nations, Report of the Secretary General, A/61/308, para. 58

Testimonies from brave people experiencing the violence of poverty were given at the Dublin Human Rights and Poverty Stone. The focus was on children’s’ suffering because of poverty in Ireland today.
We were grateful to be there, attached are some photos from the event and thankfully the rain held off!
