Women of Iraq - from victims to peacebuilders

Posted on March 13, 2011 at 9:30am 0 Comments

oon after the launch of the US-led war in 2003, Iraq witnessed the emergence of a violent conflict and the deepening of splits along communal, religious, confessional, tribal and ethnic lines.

Egypt's peaceful revolution

Posted on March 11, 2011 at 6:22am 0 Comments

I have just returned from Egypt, where the reality was rather different from government advice and some media reports. The German foreign office advised its nationals against travelling to Egypt; Netherlands newspapers were running reports of Bedouin kidnapping refugees for ransom and many police posts in Sinai deserted. In reality, I have never known the Sinai so safe and relaxed.

thanks, Ruairi. I am sure I will be back in touch with you, as i want to make connections with as many peace groups as possible. I think it is essential that the peace movement become more united and gain the kind of momentum and visibility that the anti-Vietnam War movement achieved.
