1.Many of you will recall Helena Maleno Garzón, who presented at the 2nd RENATE assembly earlier this month in Rome.
Please find below a link to YouTube, where you can access Helena’s TED talk on human trafficking and borders, entitled ‘The Cry that Breaks down the Walls.’
‘’In 1989 the night of 10th November the, Europeans holding tools and hammers, knock down the 165 kilometres Wall of Shame. Europeans wanted to be free, away from a wall that confined them.
Today, 27 years later, Europeans have built 1,200 kilometres of walls, retaining walls to keep us locked inside. Boza is a cry born in the depth of human condition. Boza is a cry that asks for a world without walls, a world full of human beings.”
