Mercoledì 17 ottobre 2018 – Giornata mondiale per l’eradicazione della povertà

 
IDEP2016VisualIdentifier

Oggi, mercoledì 17 ottobre, si celebra la ventiseiesima edizione della Giornata mondiale per l’eradicazione della povertà.
La celebrazione nasce dall’iniziativa di Padre Joseph Wresinski, sacerdote francese di origini polacche che ha dedicato il suo sacerdozio alla lotta contro la povertà dando vita, nel 1957, all’attuale
Movimento internazionale ATD Quarto Mondo.
Il 17 ottobre 1987 Padre Wresinski, già affermatosi a livello internazionale come punto di riferimento nelle iniziative di contrasto alla povertà, inaugurò, sul Sagrato delle libertà e dei Diritti dell’Uomo di Parigi, una lapide in memoria delle vittime della miseria sulla quale furono incisi i passi più significativi del suo appello all’azione: “
Laddove gli uomini sono condannati a vivere nella miseria, i diritti dell’uomo sono violati. unirsi per farli rispettare e’ un dovere sacro”.
Cinque anni dopo l’appello di Wresinski, con la risoluzione 47/196 del 22 dicembre 1992, le Nazioni Unite hanno proclamato ufficialmente il 17 ottobre “Giornata Internazionale per l’eradicazione della povertà”.
L’edizione del 2018 è dedicata al tema “
Unirsi con chi è rimasto più indietro per costruire un mondo di inclusione e rispetto universale per la dignità e i diritti umani” (“Coming together with those furthest behind to build an inclusive world of universal respect for human rights and dignity”), che mira a ricordarci l’importanza di coinvolgere direttamente le persone che versano in condizioni di povertà nella definizione delle politiche per l’eradicazione dell’indigenza, come ribadito nelle strategie elaborate dalle Nazioni Unite per la “Terza decade ONU per l’eradicazione della povertà (2018-2027)”. Inoltre, nell’anno in cui si celebra il settantesimo anniversario della proclamazione  della Dichiarazione universale dei diritti umani, ci offre l’occasione per evidenziare lo stretto legame esistente tra le condizioni di estrema povertà in cui troppe persone versano, tuttora, nel Mondo, e le violazioni dei diritti umani che queste quotidianamente subiscono.

Resoconto dell' evento.

‘Wat we nog niet weten
over armoede in Nederland’
Woensdag 17 oktober

Grote Kerk Den Haag

Inleiding
Een van de doelstellingen van ATD is om wetenschappelijke kennis, kennis van hulpverleners en kennis van armen zelf bijeen te brengen. Om hierover te spreken komen experts, professionals en ervaringsdeskundigen op 17 Oktober, Werelddag van het Verzet tegen Extreme Armoede, in Den Haag bijeen.
Op deze dag organiseert ATD-Vierde Wereld een bijzondere lezing, mogelijk gemaakt door een legaat van Frans Pinxter, oud pastoor in de Schilderswijk in Den Haag, die zich actief bezig hield met armoedebestrijding. Professor Godfried Engbersen, hoogleraar Algemene Sociologie aan de Erasmus Universiteit van Rotterdam zal de lezing houden met als titel ‘Wat we niet weten over armoede in Nederland’.
Na de lezing zullen enkele ervaringsdeskundigen en een beleidsmedewerker inzake armoedebeleid een discussie in een panel voeren.  Zij zullen ingaan op de lezing en tevens vanuit hun eigen invalshoek ingaan op de wijze waarop zij omgaan met armoede in Nederland.
Deze discussie zal daarmee perspectieven bieden om het armoedebeleid in Nederland beter te begrijpen. Tegelijkertijd kan het dienen om kennis en ervaringen te delen met het publiek. Als u – op welke wijze dan ook – betrokken bent bij het armoedebeleid nodigen wij u vriendelijk uit om deel te nemen aan dit debat over de meest effectieve manier om met armoede om te gaan. Schrijft u zich dan in met behulp van het aanmeldingsformulier.
Wij zien er naar uit u te ontmoeten.

Dar-es-Salaam - Mercoledì 17 Ottobre 2018 - World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty

Here under is a retrospective of what ATD Fourth World Tanzania did in 2017.

Details for October 17 2018 will follow
 

In 2017 ATD Fourth World Tanzania celebrated the World Day for Overcoming Poverty on Saturday the 14th – before the worldwide celebration the 17th october as every year.

The 3-hour long commemoration saw personal testimonies from people with direct experience of poverty, messages from around the world, drama, songs, poems, dancing, and an invitation to the participants to sign a special Call to Action as part of ATD’s International Stop Poverty 2017 Campaign. It was a powerful and moving occasion which deepened the commitment of those already involved in the collective struggle to overcome extreme poverty and also to attract new commitments.

The event was at Biafra place, a public space to enable all citizens to take part at the event. Through words, drama, music, and testimonies we showed how extreme poverty undermines our freedom and violates our most fundamental rights. Stories of life from Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Dodoma and Njombe reminded us of the struggle of people to overcome extreme difficulties and search a way to peace.

It is very important to gather people on a day like this because we live in classes, separated from one another. When we live such a gathering together there is something building. Then we all realize that we are all the same. People who don’t live poverty come to understand the efforts of those who fight to overcome exclusion. They discover the challenges they have to face. When people living in poverty speak and other people listen, changes can come about. It is very important to gather people on a day like this. Rehema A. (Participant from Tandale, Dar es Salam).
