Not only is peace journalism not perceived as odd, but instead, it’s seen as an integral peacebuilding tool. This week, I’m at…See More

Believe this would be of interest to you: www.beatingthebomb.com

Feel free to review/include it in 'The Peace Journalist'.

A historical documentary charting ‘The Bomb’ from 1941 to present day, framing the nuclear weapons issue within the wider context of global justice. It is about war, foreign policy, vested interests, nuclear weapons and the fight against them.

Made as a non commercial project to increase awareness on issues (un)der reported by the mainstream media – it’s available as a FREE RESOURCE for educational and campaigning purposes.

We put it on Youtube less than 3 months ago and it has already received nearly 20,000 hits.

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family.This is the teaching of our indian culture and tradition.This is a wonderful site to to know our inner self and each other and can make a world a family.
We created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for any reason.But this the time to realize that we are one and naturally interconnected with each other which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of our breaths. The source is same without any discrimination of religion and boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable and respectable .
We should follow the nature's rule,God has given us a human life not for destruction but to look after the wellbeing of all living life so that peace and harmony can establish in this planet.
I shall be happy if we could be a friend with harmonious relationship.
