The Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the University of Winnipeg have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will see their organizations work jointly to fulfill their common goals of promoting human rights education and encourage people to take action for Human Rights..
Museum president Stuart Murray says partnerships like this will move Winnipeg closer to becoming the Human Rights capital of Canada..
The MOU includes the appointment of several CMHR employees as Adjunct professors at the University and a project that will see the Museum partner with the University in delivering a three week summer institute on Human rights issues. Adventures in Global Citizenship, this August, is geared towards first and second year students..To be clear: "Human rights" in Canada boils down to our nutty "human rights" system. "Human rights" at the international level boils down to the UN "human rights" council, which is still considering the membership of Baathist Syria, even as its populace continues to be used as target practice by the nasty, brutish and tall despot in charge of the joint. I suppose it can all be seen as an "adventure" of sorts, but it's definitely not the type any freedom-lover should be inclined to support, much less crow about.
Update: I say we completely reorient this dangerous, incoherent laughingstock of a museum. Get rid of the mass atrocity porn and the "human rights" crap, and turn it into...the Candian Museum for Freedom. Winnipeg could thus become "the freedom capital of Canada."
Who's with me?
