A plug for a new website - Peace Direct.
From the introduction:
"In any war, there are always people who, rather than pick up an AK 47, will take the more difficult route of active peace making. As we speak, there are groups of people in the midst of the violence in Afghanistan, in DR Congo, even in Iraq, who are risking their lives to prevent other people from getting killed. They are mediating, building bridges between communities, resolving disputes and protecting the vulnerable. The trouble is, most of these people are completely unsupported and are in danger of giving up through lack of resources."
So Peace Direct puts people in touch with each other. Lets see how this works...
