New book Trailblazers: In the Footsteps of Eleven Human Rights Defenders includes life experiences of Mr. Martin Macwan -Founder of Navsarjan Trust

Dear all, The dream of a better world. And to act upon it. That is the catch phrase of the new book Trailblazers: In the Footsteps of Eleven Human Rights Defenders (ISBN 978-94-6022-186-6; KIT Publishers, 2012). It should be available at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Bol.com and many other outlets and your regular bookstore. The contributors take you to: Rebiya Kadeer - East Turkestan Soe Myint - Burma Martin Macwan - India Khassan Baiev - Chechnya Aminatou Haidar - Western Sahara Samuel Kofi Woods - Liberia Vuyiseka Dubula - South Africa Maria Gunnoe - United States Pablo Fajardo - Ecuador Liliana Ortega - Venezuela Sheila Watt-Cloutier - (Nunavut) Canada These testimonies have one thing in common: the local illustrates the global. The Inuit story illustrates global warming. The Sahrawi story illustrates that totalitarianism is alive and well. The Ecuadorian story illustrates why corporate social responsibility must be taken seriously – all the way to the courthouse. In the end, the truth will out. Sometimes, the last straw is nothing other than yourself.
