Vienna Week of Dignity

I felt angry and sad at the same time. During an evening walk in the first district of Vienna I saw a grinning woman. Taking pics with her mobile phone. Pics of a begging man. Years have passed since this moment. But I still feel angry and sad about this experience.

Nobody chose his fate. Everybody earns respect. A dignified treatment. „All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.“ Article 1 of the human rights.

From 2 until 5 May the Vienna Week of Dignity takes place. On the agenda: speeches and discussions. About dignity and women, dignity and economics, dignity and management, dignity and poverty, dignity and escape, dignity and media and dignity and humanity. Weekofdignity.org.
