Abstract:  As a result of their own experiences, the National Conference of Bishops in Brazil have initiated a project aimed at deepening concern and activity throughout the world regarding "the various types of domination to which people today are subjected, the violation of human rights which result from those systems, and the possibilities of educating people to understand, overcome, and transform these structures of domination and mechanisms of oppression." During 1977 and 1978, groups concerned about human rights around the world are invited to share short analyses describing the forces which are maintaining their oppression and those which could lead to change. These short narratives will be circulated to other groups around the world. Specialized groups, professional associations, churches or unions are invited to contribute research or depth studies of situations which might be useful.

Later in the process, representatives will be invited to share in international workshops, to develop conclusions about the causes of oppression and the ways people can work together to bring about a society free of domination. If you are part of a group with the experience of work for human rights and have a story to tell and some conclusions to share, consider contributing to the international process of exchange and learning. If you are a group that would like to study the experiences of others, the narratives will be available in a few weeks.
