Speakers at this year’s conferene include Sunny and Peter Pringle. Together they have established The Sunny Centre – a sanctuary for others, (like themselves), who suffer injustice, especially people who are wrongly convicted of crimes they did not commit and have spent time under sentence of death. They will share their extraordinary stories at Feile Bride this year.
Other speakers include the distinguished academic and activist Peador Kirby, who plays a leading role in the Cloughjordon Eco-Village; UCC Professor Emeritus and life-long peace activist John Magure; Honny Van Geel of La Via Compesino, which promotes the rights of peasant communities around the world, and who describes herself as ‘rooted in farming’; and Rose Hogan who has a life-long commitment to agro-ecology and sustainable agriculture.
And as the Spring birdsong heralds the end of another winter, we will also have music because, as Hans Christian Anderson said, “where words fail, music speaks.”
