BOROUGH mayor Keith Butcher will host a day of commemoration and reflection to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on Sunday, December 14.
The event, at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall starts at 10.30am with a flower laying ceremony at the Holocaust Memorial Plaque in the Civic Square.
This will bring together members of local community groups who will play relevant music and read poetry and readings from many famous authors such as Nelson Mandela.
There will also be speakers from Liverpool University's Peace Centre and Amnesty International, who will be offering people the opportunity to sign greetings cards. These will be sent to prisoners of conscience around the world.
Cllr Butcher said: “Human rights issues is something very close to my heart and I hope the people of the borough will join me in commemorating this historical document, which even 60 years on is still so relevant today.”
