  • Women Driving Political Change

Sunday, 7 February 2016

The anniversary is a moment to remember the many thousands who lost their lives, and to remember their families and the missing. It was also an opportunity to reaffirm our determination to act to prevent genocide in the future. We must never, ever forget what happened at Srebrenica, in Europe, five decades after the end of World War II. 


CWH attended to learn more from the survivors and their families, at Lancaster House, London to mark the annual commemoration. Parveen Hassan also pledged to remember those who were brutally murdered in the genocide of Srebrenica in 1995. It's important to remember those who were left behind to grieve their loss, and who rebuilt their lives with courage and dignity and how the women and girls who were brutally raped as a weapon of ethnic cleansing. 

The pledges continued;  how to speak out against the language of hate, which if allowed to go unchecked, can lead to the dehumanisation of others and make sure my voice will always stand for justice, and will speak out against injustice wherever I find it. Call upon and support my government in establishing justice and reconciliation as part of our responsibility within the international community. Work with others to establish a community that works for the common good of all, and is free from hatred and 

discrimination.
