Against Goliath...

When you have a government delegation with unlimited resources and the AU behind its position; when there are closed door meetings you cannot access and can only wait for the latest draft to come out showing the latest compromise, so that you can take it and start the next round of talking to the states to persuade them how unreasonable it is; when respectable government officers remove our information materials from the display table so that others may not know the truth; it can all get so exhausting. It is easy to give up. Until we remind ourselves why we are here. We are here because there are 1,133 Kenyans who are not here, who will never be here. Their voice must never be allowed to be silenced. — at the ICC Assembly of State Parties Meeting taking place at the World Forum Center, Den Haag.
