People's Charter to create a non-violent world

News from sisters in Melbourne: "We are going to launch 'The People's Charter to Create a Nonviolent World' in Melbourne, Australia on 11 November 2011 in a major public signing event. The date 11 November 2011 marks the (93rd) anniversary of the signing of the Armistice for The Great War (World War 1) in 1918. The idea behind this proposal is to get people to sign up to a new sense of being involved in a shared worldwide nonviolent movement of 'ordinary' people committed to ending violence in all of its forms."

WIB - Drones

Today 12th Nov, a WIB vigil took place in Bonn Sq on the subject of Drones. It is very concerning that so many people have no idea what they are. If they have heard of them they do not have any idea what they can do and as Drones are very much cheaper than bombers and with no UK military casualties [even when they fall from the skies] most people will see them as benevolent instead of probably illegal under international law
