USM and Anti-Poverty Platform Host Kingdom Day Dialogue.

PHILIPSBURG:— On the occasion of the 64th anniversary of the Kingdom Charter, the University of St. Martin in collaboration with the Sint. Maarten Anti-Poverty Platform will hold a public dialogue on the Status of Human Rights in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, on Saturday, December 15th, 2018 at USM campus.

This year’s Kingdom Charter Day commemoration coincides with the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. USM and the Anti-Poverty Platform have, therefore, invited prominent islanders to reflect on the realization of civil, political, and socio-economic and cultural rights in the Kingdom and in particular here on Sint. Maarten.

Mrs. Mavis Brooks-Solomon, Ms. Lysanne Charles, and Mr. Denisio Bryson will address the democratic and human rights deficit in the Kingdom, while Mr. Raymond Jessurun, Dr. Rhoda Arrindel, and Mr. Reigenald Arrindell will focus on economic and cultural rights, as well as the right to development.

“The event promises to be very informative and educative,” said Mr. Jessurun. “We are happy to be collaborating with USM to instigate a public dialogue on these important issues.”
