Militarism is never the answer –  Press Release

Militarism is never the answer – Press Release

Syria
Although we all condemn President Putin`s action in entering Ukraine we must now consider what steps can be taken to de-escalate the situation. Although some low level talks have been held we must consider the best options to not stroke or escalate a war in Europe.  Both sides need assurances of their own safety with Russia requesting that Ukraine remaining non-NATO/neutral state.  This is very important to the Russians.  Before the break-up of USSR, NATO promised never to move East into ex-soviet countries.  They now have missiles and bases in most ex-soviet countries.

Destitute and Desperate Asylum Seekers and Migrants

Syria
25 Nov 2021 – It was with deep sadness that on Wed 23 Nov 2021 the world watched in horror the news that 27 people had drowned in the English Channel when their flimsy dinghy overturned in the sea in an attempted crossing from Calais to Dover. I am sorry and I ask the forgiveness of migrants and refugees who have been forced to flee their lands and seek a place of refuge in any country who would give them a place to lay their heads. I send my condolences to the families at the loss of their beloved ones in a cold watery tragedy far away from their homes.

Tabooed Gandhi By Leo Semashko and GGHA

Syria
In English: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=1017 In Russian: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=922 The Gandhian law of varnas/spherons is the law of overcoming confrontation and humanity survival. Why is it tabooed, hushed up and suppressed for almost a century? Who will support its scientific research, development and application during 16 years in the GGHA for the "total elimination of nuclear weapons" and the preservation of nature? Since the publication of books and articles on this topic is also blocked, who will publish this GGHA collective article to begin with it? On the day of the 152nd anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi birth, we will not focus on the well-deserved praise of his undoubtedly the humanity highest peacemaking achievement - on the non-violent historical liberation of India from British slavery. We also will not focus on the growing demonization…
