A hundred years ago were the trench mortars to make a noise with their mechanical roar around the Lavaredo’s Three Peaks, on September 13th will be the warmth of 6000 people to embrace the Dolomites to make a noise, in the name of human rights.
The initiative "The Dolomites embrace Human Rights", will take place on Sunday, September 13th at 12 pm, with the aim of creating a human chain of more than 6,000 people for freedom, justice and peace around the most famous peaks of Sesto’s Dolomites. A symbolic embrace to remind the world the importance to stand up for civilians trapped in conflicts, the weakest, the forgotten, the victims of torture and discrimination, for those who are deprived of basic rights such as food, health and education.
The event is organized by Amnesty International Italy - that celebrates the 40th anniversary of the foundation - the NGO "Together We Can ..." and Art for Amnesty, in collaboration with the Municipality of Auronzo di Cadore and the Tourist Association "Three Peaks Dolomites ", and with the support of the Chamber of Deputies, the Province of Belluno, the Dolomites UNESCO Foundation and the Municipalities of Dobbiaco and Agordo.
Back in 2009, on the occasion of "The Dolomites embrace Africa", they created a huge human chain of thousands of people: families, hikers, climbers and visitors. Also this year people from many countries and with different cultures, religious beliefs and political opinions will meet at the foot of the majestic Lavaredo’s Three Peaks, in silence and contemplation, different but united by shared values such as peace, justice and human rights: people who want to personally feel affected by the injustices of the world and make it better.
How to reach the Lavaredo’s three peaks?
For hikers there are several paths. It is possible to go up from the Rienza Valley, directly from Lake Landro, or through the flowers’ fields of Val Fiscalina near Sesto. Alternatively, always from Val Fiscalina, on the left of the Cima Una and then cross the refuge Zsigmondy-Comici at 2,224 meters of altitude (the tour takes about 5 hours).
Another very pleasant route is the one that starts from Val Campo di Dentro and passes by the refuge Tre Scarperi in San Candido, at 1,635 meters of altitude, or from Auronzo di Cadore going up to Val Marzon first and then traveling on the old military road along the valley of Lavaredo.
