Escape from Alcatraz
Malcolm Tweed, winning triathlete, engaged us with his participation in the Escape from Alcatraz race. Alcatraz was named in 1775 and became a prison in 1934 but closed in the 1960s as it was too expensive to maintain. The race, with 2500 participants comprises a 2.5km swim in 12C water with a 7.5km/hour tide, a hilly bike ride and run. Malcolm won his age-group.
Roslyn Noonan gave an interesting talk on Human Rights, which are defined in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. When they were adopted the NZ delegate said that all articles are equally important. She noted that they do not include the right to smoke so prisoners were unable to invoke help for a smoking ban in prisons! A Former Commissioner Roslyn outline New Zealand's prominent role in Human Rights from the Treaty in 1840 to present day rights for the disabled. She has been assisting the development of human rights in the South Pacific, particularly relating to climate change and family violence and emphasised the importance of consultation at he grass roots level to build pressure for change.
