From 12pm today Hawthorne Square at DMU is the site for a 24 hour Love International vigil. Created by Vice-Chancellor, Dominic Shellard, the event is an impassioned response to the many concerned voices of staff and students on the latest developments on the global political stage. The event is a testament to the DMU community bringing together a range of talent and expertise from diverse fields to make a stand against intolerance.

And, of course, all of us at the library and in special collections are proud to be a part of the event. Our pop-up library stall is around from 3-5pm today providing a welcoming backdrop to the al fresco academic board meeting debating the adoption of Article One of the UN Charter.

The Academic Board begins to gather to discuss adopting Article One of the UN Charter – which among other things is to “achieve international co-operation by promoting and achieving respect for human rights and freedoms regardless of race, sex, language or religion…”

So far the vigil has seen dance performances, speeches, sign making and poetry readings. For more information and a timetable for the rest of the event see LoveInternational24
