The People’s Movement for Human Rights Education (PDHRE) is a major NGO with affiliates around the globe and an affiliate in South East Asia and the Pacific, which includes New Zealand, is in formation.

Shulamith Koenig, Founding President of PDHRE and recipient of the 2003 UN Award for outstanding achievement in the field of Human Rights, posted the following on my Facebook wall.

 

PDHRE is unusual because it promotes ‘Human rights as a way of life’ and holism. The latter important for reaching one's full potential. At the bottom I wrote a response.

PDHRE, a major human rights NGO, is one of
the exceedingly few human rights organizations sufficiently open-minded to have
been supportive of my search for human rights truth. PDHRE promotes holism. I
understand the latter to be a head/heart balance, consciousness linked to the
eternal, and, in my experience, gained by exercising a duty to the community
(human family). In my view, it is this lackof
consciousness, balance and duty which has led to the virtual capture of the
human rights establishment, domestic and global, by neoliberalism (which I
consider is in the interests of very ignorant bureaucratic elites). The
captured invariably seem to have closed minds and unreceptive to the much
greater truth which I consider to be the ethical approach to human rights,
development and globalization (to replace neoliberalsim). However, as the
country and the world continue along their self-destructive course the ethical
approach is slowly gaining in support. PDHRE is very likely to be amongst the
most enlightened and at the forefront of human rights development. Anthony

PS. The New Zealand Human Rights Commission has also been
supportive of myself and the council over the years.
