  CANADIAN PEACE-KEEPERS DAY

                    Location of this listing:  Canada

     When:  August 6, 2006

 

 

The Canadian Association of Veterans in UN Peacekeeping (www.cavunp.org) has been working to have August 9th as "Peacekeepers Day". Their efforts have resulted in Proclamations across Canada. 

 

August 9th is the date, in 1974, when 9 Canadian Peacekeepers were killed when their plane was shot down over Syria.  Peacekeepers Day also recognizes the countless Canadians who have served, or are serving, as Blue Berets and in other NATO and coalition missions.    Historical references from CBC.ca

 

On Peacekeepers Day, learn more about the role Canadians have played in the pursuit of Peace and celebrate  our history with peacekeepers and veterans. In your community encourage, and participate in, recognition of their service and sacrifice.

  •        2ND ANNUAL CHILDREN'S GLOBAL SUMMIT

    When:  August 18-20, 2006

     

    All children ages 8 and up are encouraged to come.

    Founded by 17-yr old activist for world peace, human rights and social justice, Jason Crowe, envisioned the Children’s Global Summit as an effort to provide clear plans of action and resolutions from a mass consensus of children and adults working together, co-creating a new tomorrow - a new reality.  The purpose of this Summit is to develop clear solutions and action plans based on the specific information provided.  It is the vision of the founder that children of any age and circumstance can make an enormous difference without regard to age, gender, race, religion, creed, ethnicity, & sexual orientation.

    Speakers will be global children who, like Jason, are making a difference against unbelievable odds, as well as adults who have youth programs impacting humanity in a positive way.

    The conference will cover topics such as: war/peace, human rights, social justice, environment, education, spirituality, and health/wellness.

    The Summit is open to all children and their parents (or guardian), as well as interested adults, such as youth leaders, religious leaders, educators, etc.

    At the Awards Ceremony, the children will show their appreciation to diverse adults who work tirelessly to make the world a better place for this generation.

HEAL THE EARTH MEDITATION - GLOBAL EVENT

              July 26, 2004 - 11p.m. to midnight (British Summer Time)

 

 

We are Joachim Koch, a surgeon, 54, and Hans-Juergen Kyborg, now a retired railway employee, from Berlin, Germany.  We are neither politically nor religiously organized nor members of any organization or group.  We each have decades of study of ancient sacred sites and power spots in Wiltshire, South England and in Germany… and we are deeply concerned about the condition of the Earth and ask for your spiritual support.

 

On July 26th, 2004, we here in Europe will be at the most sacred sites like stone circles, hills and near holy trees, wells and lakes in our countries to release there the most positive power of both the spirit and the very place in a peaceful effort. At the same hour in that night, we would like to link up to others who are encouraged do the same in their sacred locations to form a mighty band of positive energy one time around the planet - just like a child puts his arms around the beloved mother to shelter her.

 

This event is supported by all caretakers of this planet – the Native Nations, aboriginal societies and those of numerous other origins.  Since we all share the same planet, Mother Earth, we share your same concerns and cry the same tears as we see so much abuse and violation of our nurturer and life-giver; and we seek to restore its harmony and balance.  Please help us bring this change about.

 

On this day, from 11:00 pm to midnight British time (GM), let us all link up together. Let us sit at the old stones, medicine wheels, on the hills, near lakes, rivers and sea shores, at sacred wells and under holy trees or simply comfortably at home and let us raise and empower the holy energies, let us open these gates, let us be together with our ancestors, let us sing, drum and dance or sit quiet, let's raise the winds of the four directions to blow the key word of the new future one time around the world:  connect.

 

We stand for freedom, peace, the joy of taking a deep breath of fresh, clean and non-empoisoned air, and the purity of the water, the true essence of our physical existence.  Please join us.

 GREENPEACE CALL TO ACTION - U.S. EVENT

May 17, 2004

 

TWO MESSAGES FROM

TO THE RESIDENTS OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA, U.S., AND ALL SUPPORTERS OF THE EARTH:

 

FIRST MESSAGE:

Thursday May 13 from 6-9PM

Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC) Wolfson Campus
300 N.E.2nd.Avenue,Building #1,
4th floor terrace


Join us for a unique opportunity to engage international experts from Greenpeace and a panel of rainforest experts, legal strategists, direct action activists and local supporters in a discussion about the destruction of the Amazon rainforest and the unprecedented criminal prosecution of Greenpeace by the federal government.

Refreshments will be available at 6PM, forum begins at 7PM.

For questions or more information please call
305.903.7349

SECOND MESSAGE:
In April, 2002, several individual activists from Greenpeace boarded a cargo ship carrying 70 tons of illegal
mahogany from Brazil.  Their intent was to hold up a banner from the ship that said,

"President Bush: Stop Illegal Logging". 

 

For this act of civil disobedience, the activists involved were sentenced to time served after a weekend in
jail and had their remaining charges dropped.  However, 16 months later, in July 2003, the U.S. Justice Department handed down an indictment against the entire organization for allowing the ship to be boarded.  

 

They found an obscure 1872 law against 'sailor mongering', the practice of boarding ships and luring merchant marines from their ships to brothels and boarding houses - apparently a problem in the late 1800s. 
 

Despite the inappropriateness of the charge, the consequence for Greenpeace is very grave.  If found guilty, Greenpeace could lose its non-profit status and be barred from future direct action protests for 5-10 years, rendering the group much less effective.  Considering the fact that no organization in US history has been prosecuted for the individual actions of its members, this indictment appears to be a politically motivated attack against Greenpeace and Americans' rights to engage in non-violent civil disobedience.
 

This trial will be a milestone for American's civil liberties, continuing unprecedented increases in federal power under the U.S. Patriot Act permanent. 
 

We ask that everyone that is concerned about our freedom of speech, about the future of Greenpeace and the future of our last remaining rainforests (the reason the ship was boarded) come and show their support during the two weeks our trial is likely to last.  Since we have a jury trial, public outreach will be absolutely critical. 

 

TRIAL IS MAY 17, 2004 IN MIAMI, FL.

GLOBAL LOVE DAY - GLOBAL EVENT

              May 1, 2004

                "Love Begins With Me"

 

The Day... We invite you to celebrate this day by consciously focusing on love and what it means to you.  We hope that by practicing love in all areas of your life, you will find it natural to use it all year long.  This year's theme explains it best, "Love Begins With Me."

What You Can Do... Simply be love.  And if you want to actually do something loving, we have provided several categories to help give you ideas of how you may approach the day.  See the links to the left or above.  Each page will present ideas that you can begin with.  We encourage you to come up with your own ideas (and share them with us!)

Become a Love Ambassador... See our I Love page to find out how you can become an Ambassador of Love!

The Vision... The Love Foundation is delighted to announce the first annual GLOBAL LOVE DAY on May 1, 2004 with this year's theme of Love Begins With Me.  Join people from around the world as we acknowledge, celebrate and share the love we have within.  This is a special day of recalling that love is the link that binds us all.  It is also the awesome power that heals and transforms everything it contacts. 

Each of us is a potent force of love when we allow this energy to express itself.  There is nothing we have to ultimately do, rather we need only allow ourselves to feel and be love.  It is that simple.  Global Love Day is merely our way of saying let's remember love is ours to be and to share every moment of our lives.
