In loving memory of Juliette Doman who sadly passed away on 12th March 2019
Juliette was born on 4/10/1977 and grew up in Liverpool with her parents, Brian & Rosemary and her sisters, Alison, Michelle and Rachael.
From an early age Juliette developed a burning passion to fight injustice coming from compassion. She chose to stop eating meat as a young child before she had heard of vegetarianism and was a vegan for decades. This led to campaigning for animal welfare but Juliette expanded her activism to address the fundamental injustices of our world.
Juliette was a lifelong struggler for a better world. She was driven by her compassion for all sentient beings and a passion for justice. She put her principles into practice, and her life and liberty in harm's way for her causes.
A trip to El Salvador as part of a solidarity brigade in 1999, led to a love of, and support for the working peoples struggling against oppression and ecocide in Central America.
worked as an accompanier to witnesses in the Rios Montt genocide trial,
was a human rights observer in Chiapas Mexico,
taught English in rural Nicaragua,
and was involved in solidarity work for the Zapatista movement in Mexico.
From 2008 to 2014, together with her partner Mike, she ran La Escuela de Montaña in Guatemala, a school in the impoverished countryside, that created employment for local people by teaching the foreign students Spanish as well as the social & political realities of Guatemala. The work included supporting community projects to improve health and education. This include raising funds for, and coordinating the construction of a community library and computer lab.
Juliette was academically gifted, holding a BSc in psychology and philosophy, and MA in Latin American Studies and at the time of her death was undertaking a PhD. The subject of her research was the prosecution of sexual slavery and murder committed by the Guatemalan army during the country's 36-year civil war.
Despite her achievements, abilities and accomplishments, only a small portion of which are recounted here, Juliette was self-effacing, never seeking praise or glory, but always questioning whether she was doing enough. Furthermore, despite always being very busy due to many commitments, Juliette would always take time to talk to people, to help them if needed, whether she knew them well or not, out of her boundless empathy.
And with all of this accompanied by her warm smile and her whole-hearted laughter which epitomised her approach to life.
