In August 2016, we took our first ever delegation from Northern Ireland to Bosnia to learn Lessons from Srebrenica. Here three of the delegates, Peter Osborne, Caitriona Ruane MLA and Dr Ahmed Helmy talk about the experience.
Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the tragic events in Sri Lanka. These reprehensible acts, committed by those who are driven by hatred, aim to create fear & division in communities. We must stand together in solidarity & show that they will never succeed.
This week marks 6 years since @SrebrenicaUK was founded. Since 2013, we've organised 6,200 memorial activities, educated 90,000 young people & created 1,200 Community Champions who pledge to stand up to hatred & intolerance. Grateful to all whose support has made this possible.4
