Edmund Rice Justice Bulletin

This blog had its origin as a means of linking students from Christian Brothers Schools in Victoria, Australia who attended the Social Justice days Brian Bond organised, or who participated in school retreats he helped facilitate. It arose from a belief that as well as charity, advocacy for human rights can also be a compassionate response for those who experience injustice and deprivation. In other words we can address root causes rather than just symptoms. After moving to Geneva to take up a position with Edmund Rice International (ERI) Brian decided to maintain the bulletin with its expanded mailing list but to give it an added focus linking it with the work of ERI.
