Silent march planned for Dec 10

SNO

Chakadan

Following a meeting over the weekend, the planning and organising committee for the march, funeral and burial arrangements of Chakadan Daniel has rescheduled the silent march and mini rally for December 10, Human Rights Day.

The UN General Assembly proclaimed December 10 as Human Rights Day in 1950, to bring to the attention of the peoples of the world the Universal Declaration on Human Rights as the common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.

The planned march and rally will follow the same format as originally set out.  The activity will begin at 3:00 pm from the Micoud Playing Field with a silent march through the streets of Micoud village and return to the playing field where the mini rally will be held.

Whereas the focus will be on Chakadan Daniel, the march and rally present an opportunity for family members and friends of past human rights victims to demonstrate their concerns and intolerance through participation.

  1. The following excerpt from the Press Release posted on the Remembering Chakadan Daniel fb Memorial page impressed me:

    The Silent March and Mini Rally will be staged against the backdrop of the following questions and concerns: absence of conclusive evidence, i.e. photographs to confirm that Chakadan committed suicide by hanging himself; failure of the Police to produce the material(s) used in the "hanging" (in support of their claim); absence of any role by the Coroner as required by law; no evidence or statement from authorities that the crime scene has been preserved; no clear statement from the relevant authorities that the Police Officer(s) implicated (by virtue of their presence near the scene of an unresolved crime which is under active investigation), have been transferred or sent on leave; and failure on the part of the Minister of Home Affairs and National Security to issue clear directives to the police, mindful that the record of the police is under close scrutiny by the US and international Human Rights Agencies.
