Father John Dear on Desmond Tutu & Thich Nhat Hanh: Two Peacemakers Who Changed the World

Democracy Now - Tue, 01/25/2022 - 14:00
In an extended interview, Father John Dear, longtime peace activist and former director of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, recalls the lives and impact of his close friends Thich Nhat Hanh and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who corresponded with him regularly. Thich Nhat Hanh, the world-renowned Buddhist monk, antiwar activist, poet and teacher, died Saturday at the age of 95, and South African anti-apartheid icon Archbishop Tutu died last month at the age of 90. Dear is the former director of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, which first brought Thich Nhat Hanh to the United States in the 1960s, and is now executive director of the Beatitudes Center.

Brexit er ikke riktig medisin

Attac - Mon, 01/24/2022 - 13:54
Brexit har av mange EU-motstandere blitt løftet som en viktig seier. Også i Norge. Realiteten er likevel at det er frihandelsavtaler vi må til livs.

Vi trenger ikke bistand, men rettferdighet

Attac - Wed, 01/05/2022 - 11:22
