Educate for Peace
The civic act began with the martial touch of the Warband of the Secretariat of Public Security accompanying the patriotic lábaro. Francisco Guerra, coordinator of the GEAP in Mexico, then presented the Justice for Peace Program and thanked the authorities and speakers for their assistance.
With the topic: “Human Rights: essence, scope, foundation and validity in the world” began the cycle of speeches, by Manuel Argaez, president of the Instituto Tabasqueño of access to Public Information, who said:
“One of the objectives pursued by human rights is peace, and for that we have to Educate for Peace. Educating for Peace is one of the great challenges because it requires commitment and also creativity and intelligence.”
Responsibility of all
Juan Jauregui Ramirez, leader of the World Youth Movement of the South-Southeastern Region, during his dissertation said:
“The responsibility is not only of the authorities, it is of each and every one of us; let us not think that authority alone is obliged to comply with human rights.”
Ramirez added that all citizens are called to play a very important role in the protection of human rights.
For his part, Judge Martin Mariscal, in his speech indicated:
“Change is in us; the sooner we sow the seed in ourselves and in our fellow citizens, this can favor a better scenario for the new generations.”
Subsequently, the acknowledgments were handed out. Emilio Mercado, on behalf of Jorge Aguirre, Secretary of Public Security of the State of Tabasco, was in charge of the closing remarks.
