Amnesty Event

27 08 2011

Speaking after attending an  event organised by Moyle Amnesty Group  to celebrate 50 years of Amnesty International, Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Donal Cunningham said “For the last 50 years, Amnesty has really played its part in changing the world, championing the causes of oppressed minorities, fighting torture, campaigning against the death penalty, defending prisoners of conscience and the rights of refugees, and calling oppressive regimes to account. Its inspiring vision is of a world in which every person enjoys the freedoms of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Unfortunately  there are still human rights challenges to face and the need for individuals to stand together against injustice remains as strong as ever. I wish the Moyle Amnesty Group every best wish for the future and assure them of my wholehearted support ”

The event featured Ballycastle’s own emerging acoustic folk singer/songwriter Meghan McWilliams  (daughter of the late David McWilliams), followed by the dramatisation  of   “Rich Woman/Poor Woman” (a poem from the Chile in the period shortly after the democratically elected Salvador Allende was overthrown by Augusto Pinochet) by locals Molly Goyer-Gorman and Catherine Dallat. The headline act was the legendary former Moving Heart  Keith Donald. An absolutely brilliant night.
