March 5, 2013: Gabriel Stauring met with 130 students at Palisades High School and reported on the success of the human rights mobile libraries STF created and launched in Darfuri refugee camps last year. He also showed video reports from the camp, including Rahma, the inspiring teenage librarian.
Gabriel recounted evidence of the success of the mobile libraries. In Camp Goz Amer, the location of the second STF library, a meeting was held by UN and NGO representatives for the local officials, teachers and students to explain severe funding cuts, especially for the camp schools. One student stood and said, “We have been learning about human rights and I know education is a human right. I demand my right to education!”
Gabriel encouraged Pali students, “Get involved in your STF club on campus! That’s the first step [to taking action for human rights.]”
