ICARE Live Report Durban II: The Last Editorial

The Durban Review Conference ended today. At the start of this morning, still a 100 NGOs were scheduled to speak in the plenary. Soon, this number dropped to 87. Some had planes to catch and could no longer wait-out the delays caused by points of order by Iran, trying to fight its isolation by being even more vehemently aggressive than during the previous days. Those who stayed got their 3 minutes in the UN-facilitated limelight. There were beautiful contributions. There was some annoying stuff. There were just and unjust attacks on the UN, countries, each other. A smorgasbord of excellence and stupidity; Civil Society in action. Then the countries started their final contributions, not doing better – or worse.
