Your work is amazing, and touches on many aspect of human rights, which in many parts of the world are neglected. As an African from a continent that has seen lots of attrocities and violation of human rights, I feel your work is a starting point of asking African leaders an to rethink their strategy of human rights advocacy. One of the stinging issues that come to my mind when I think of human rights is "domesticated slaves" within the confines of our homes in Africa. What am I talking about? The issue of domesticated slaves is an open secret of which even legislators in corridors of power on the African continent are involved and are guilty of. How can we work together to initiate a program of sensitizing citizens in African countries on the need to demand for better wages other than being given plate of corn meal and dry beans when they are forced to toil 24/7?
Dear shulamith, it is a pleasure to meet you on this wonderful peace network. I come from Sierra Leone where I am writing now with an interest in peace, human rights and non-violence. my organization uses creativity and technology as new tactics in raising human rights issues and tools of advocacy against the blatant human rights violation. i hope we will be able to develop new ideas and new vision. warm wishes, Andrew
I believe very strongly that without people knowing and owning human rights rights as a way of life and acknowledging the dignity of the other - the "enemy" --as as a full human being there will never be reconciliation or peace, ( I happen to be a former Israeli and I know it too well, as Israelis have never recognized the Palestinians as full human beings. ..)
Thus the initiative we took via The Government of Benin to cal for human rights learning worldwide to integrate such learning as an ongoing effort in every aspect of our lives. is the first step towards reconciliation and peace.
Please give me your E mail address and I will send you the resolution and other materialism to see if in our research you can look at ways an means to achieve this call.
Thank you, Shula Koenig ; firstname.lastname@example.org
