My Appeal on Recognising Srebrenica Memorial Day

11 Jul , 2019  

Not often I feel like this but last night (10th July, 2019) I was left feeling upset. I proposed a motion to Full Council asking members to join with me in recognising the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide next year. In writing it I was careful to ask only for support and not for any money so that it was not thrown out on the basis that it had financial implications. I was asking for the council to recognise the anniversary on its dedicated day, 11th July, by supporting a gathering in the peace gardens.

24 years ago one of the most shameful tragedies in history unfolded in my country. The world watched as 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed by Serb forces in #Srebrenica. Today, this small town is a reminder of what happens when we ignore hate, until it is too late pic.twitter.com/9dwvKUn5PG
