After attending a recent peace rally in San Diego to commemorate the 8th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, I left with one strong impression: we in the peace movement need to better align ourselves with the principles of peace if we are going to be effective in our intentions to end all wars and create a peaceful and just society. As a peace educator who considers herself to be part of this movement, I believe that peace education could help us to achieve this alignment, promote greater…Continue

Too many expatriate workers are helping to build the Libyan economy and society to bring it closer to modernity. They comprise over 1/3 of the Libyan population of 6 Million+, and they include thousands of my fellow Filipinos. With the conflict between pro and anti-Kadhafy forces escalating, expats were so badly displaced along the way.
I hope I could have been interviewed by Kadhafy himself before the turmoil started. For…Continue

Here follows a telegram-style short list of contradictions, foolish assumptions and flawed humanism. An equally short conclusion with prediction follows the list. I am presently working on a short piece on what could and should have been done instead of these terrible and counterproductive bombings.
We can’t meet, talk or negotiate with such a guy!
Scores of Western leaders have met him and seen him as an ally the last few…Continue
After years of working in overseas development and seeing many well-intentioned work-life balance policies fall flat, it’s not surprising that many of us became cynical about the prospect of living healthy, balanced lives in the field.

World opinion has been moving closer to approving a full intervention to oust Libya’s mad leader Kadhafy. As to what forms of intervention will be adopted, global leaders are still in the dark as of the moment.
