The Standing Committee on human Rights and Peace (SCORP) is formed by people who make efforts to understand things from a different point of view. The way to proceed that medical students should have is the beginning of understanding a patient as a person and not as an illness that must be treated…and nowadays, this is the kind of doctors who are very difficult to find in the clinics.
As one of the quotes in Casablanca ‘with the whole world crumbling we pick this time to fall in love’, it is necessary to have a look to what it is near you in order to see what is further… it is very difficult being fair and loyal to our ideas, but I think a lot of people are closer to it. To fight for what you believe in, in order to get to that person we love, a person who thinks and decides and a person who is aware of the importance of their acts…. A person who does not quit the fight under the effects of the words of those who say that the utopia will not arrive……because everything which is real has been a dream before…. Maybe a smile does not change the world…but I am sure it helps…. I guess a lot of you have already experienced it.
I encourage all of you, all the people reading these lines to participate in this formative project on topics that affect all of us, even if certain people do not want to be aware of them….things happening near and far, even though at the end of the day the distance is just a number.
There are north-south inequalities, but there are also inequalities in the north and inequalities in the south where one sector gets richer and the other sector works in bad conditions…. therefore we will talk through the fourth World and immigration, the external debt, human rights, and the way some organizations and governments do not work on the fulfilment of it; we will also work on the spreading of fair trade , the responsible consumption which is a reachable reality … And we talk about this because there are people who care, and they care because they area capable of seeing what is going on around them and they try to look for the best way of understanding and looking for a solution. Because every single spot of sand counts…...
As some verses say ‘if you can not see further away, we are lost..’ So I invite you to save us, to open your eyes and look at us, and I hope this way, although the stories do not change too much, the small change will mean something …and something better.
