Marking firsts in Burma. Being graced by heads of government. Hosting liberals worldwide during their first Congress in Asia. Holding the last major event on an epic island to discuss pluralism. These are some of the highlights for CALD in 2011, which can be relived through its annual report.
With the theme "Think Freedom", the 2011 edition was launched during the CALD General Assembly in Colombo, Sri Lanka on 08-11 March 2012. This marks the eighth year that CALD has published an annual report.
Apart from accounts on CALD projects, the publication also includes messages from CALD leaders, memorable speeches from CALD conferences, and news and information on CALD member parties. The CALD annual report serves not only as a memento from the year that was but also as an inspiration for the following year to come.
"To fight and hope are two sides to a liberal coin," pointed out Dr. Neric Acosta in his message as CALD Secretary General. "Just as it was in 2011, so shall 2012 continue to bear this out for all of us who call CALD our bastion of noble struggle and blazing hope."
