We are gathering to honour the Nuremberg Code’s 10 medial principles, and our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Former premier of Newfoundland, Brian Peckford, the only premier still alive to day that helped to craft the charter document, will be one of the honoured speakers. A number of doctors have been invited, including Dr Daniel Nagase who’s video from our previous October 1st in Vancouver at the art gallery went viral. (Please watch it you have not yet.) And also, Dr. Charles Hoffe, from Lytton, BC one of the first doctors who courageously came forward early on. And other notables will also speak.
The event is designed as a unifying, respectful event, and as a gracious action of visual public art too, which is why we are hosting a candlelight ceremony for the conclusion of the gathering.
It is encouraged that people from each community, union, religion, occupation, tribe or organization to clearly state where they are from, IE city, town, municipality or region.
This will visually show our depth and diversity so people can see we are people from all walks of life. If you are able, please bring a sign on a 7 or 8 foot pole, 2×2, 2×3 etc to place it above peoples’ heads clearly visible where they are from, plus the bottom of the pole can rest on the ground making it much easier to hold. Canadian and BC flags are, of course, also welcome. We are discouraging banners that are insulting or crude. This is not a place for political parties to set up tents or wave banners. Humour is absolutely welcome.
We demand that all Canadian governments honour our civil rights by obeying the law. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is Law.
There will be four people reading in their mother tongue the first Nuremberg Code principle in their languages. The Nuremberg Trials were held in french, German, Russian and English.
Then the sunset ceremony will commence.
