Manja Hidim Teron Bridge a struggle for 20 years- A Fact Sheet


The Manja Hidim Teron Village Bridge is a life line for 35 villages; more than 2000 children alone go to schools and colleges besides a number of people. The bridge is under construction for the last 20 years. We are sad to say that undue hardships are caused by the incomplete construction of the bridge. The villagers are completely cut off from the rest of the world when the temporary bamboo bridge gets…

The Taliban Shuffle – a transnational professional review

Kim Barker's book ‘The Taliban Shuffle: Strange days in Afghanistan and Pakistan’ is a highly recommended, accessible and thought-provoking read for everybody who works in the transnational, transient sphere of expatriate employment in developing countries or conflict zones. The book is less interesting if you are looking for factual information on post-9/11 ‘AfPak’, because most of Kim’s stories about the challenges of the international intervention (diplomatically phrased) have been…

Weaving our stories; creative ways to help build human capacity, peace-enabling and understanding

‘Given the fact that two thirds of Man’s brain is dormant it never ceases to amaze me how little he uses the one third which is active. If Man pushed just a little harder what miracles there might be!’

Albert Einstein, 1932

We co-create our realities with every word, action, idea, with our ways of understanding, our connections and conflicts. Stories; histories, cultural connections are central to our identity, our agency,…

Somaliland: Recognition Is Within Reach

Somaliland has fulfilled the legal requirements for statehood. The only element that prevents Somaliland from receiving recognition and enjoying all the benefits that flow from statehood are the political considerations of entities, which they are unable to control.

Below is an article published by Somaliland Press:

The 20th anniversary of Somaliland self-declaration as independent state will be on May 18th [2011]. Somaliland declared independence after the… Continue

PKK's jailed leader Öcalan threatens government with war

The jailed leader of  Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), sentenced to life imprisonment on an island in the Marmara Sea, has given the government until June 15 to accept the PKK's demands, threatening war if there are no improvements by this date.  

PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan's messages, delivered during a meeting he had on Wednesday last week with his lawyers, were posted online on a PKK-affiliated website on Saturday. “The process will evolve into either a major agreement or a major…

End the Land Mine Plague

Everyday around the world innocent people, many of them children, are killed or injured by millions of unexploded land mines and cluster bombs. Some of the cluster bomblets look like candy or a toy which attract a child in a field, orchard, and schoolyard or by the roadside.

Powerful aggressor nations are responsible for most of these anti-personal weapons being laid from land or by air. Most recently, Libya’s rulers laid mines on the outskirts of Ajdabiya as part of its battle…

Irish communists: No welcome for the English monarchy!

The Communist Party of Ireland condemns the preparations being made to welcome the representative of the English monarchy to Ireland. 

 The purpose of this visit—and it has been said explicitly—is to write “finish” to the centuries-long struggle of the Irish people for national sovereignty and democracy. It is a carefully organised symbolic act. Ireland’s unresolved national question is to remain unresolved. All the bourgeois parties are agreed that the shameful,…

Of Humans and Rights

U.S. newspapers sometimes print what they call the total death count from one or more of our wars, and all the dead who are listed are Americans.  They aren't all the Americans.  They don't include contractors or suicides or various other categories of dead Americans.  They certainly don't include those who died for lack of basic needs while we dumped half of our public treasury into wars. 

But they also don't include anyone from that 95% of humanity that's not from the United… Continue

The recent finalization of the 450-kph bullet train of China is among the top great news showing the positive, constructive life going on in Asia. Such a life has been led by the ‘emerging markets’ of the continent and seconded by the ‘dragon economies’. Altogether, the economic powers of the region are exhibiting to the world what is meant by the idiom…

Human Rights Group Demands Closure of Evin Prison Court

The Iranian Judiciary should immediately halt the operation of a recently-established “special court” at Evin prison, which confines judges and magistrates to the prison complex and denies lawyers and families any access to judicial proceedings, the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran said today.

“The newly-formed Evin Court has increased the influence of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence over judicial matters by blocking lawyers’ access to clients and case files,”…
