Peace Table 2013
Again this year, the sky was radiating in a brilliant blue above the traditional Peace Table, held between 1 and 4 p.m., following the presentation of the Human Rights Award on 29 September.
The Peace Table stretched from Hall Platz along Dr.-Kurt-Schumacher-Straße through to Färberstraße and into the Way of Human Rights. About 4,000 people enthusiastically celebrated the award winner, Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, and got talking, not only amongst themselves, but at special “talking tables” also with many international guests.
Along the Peace Table, an entertaining cultural programme was offered, including choirs and music inspired by Africa. At information tables, Nuremberg Human Rights Organisations discussed with interested visitors.
The participants of this citizens’ party could bring their own food and drinks, or make use of the colourful menu on offer at the many catering stalls and restaurants along the Peace Table. Another high point, as every year, was the balloon release at the end of the Peace Table.
After the Peace Table, Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera discussed the situation of LGBTI people in her home country, Uganda, in Caritas-Pirckheimer-Haus, with over 100 interested people.
