“Those of us who are fortunate to live in countries where we can speak freely without fear of consequences or repercussion should never forget that we have not only a right, but a duty, to care and to stand in solidarity with those who speak out in defence of human rights and who, in doing so, face harassment, intimidation, stigmatisation, violence and persecution.”

President  Michael D. Higgins, November 2016
