Sudan, Burma, Congo… The power of carrot and stick: reductio ad absurdum?

I have expressed my humble opinion about Sudan, Burma, Congo and other issues on many occasions on this blog, looking at the root causes and trying to explain them with simple words. I have close friends working in local organizations in France but also abroad, and it is always rewarding to discuss with experienced people. For the “60 Signers for the 60th ... More
Darfur, Congo, Burma: is ‘good will’ enough?

The plights in Darfur, Congo and Burma are different on many aspects but the initiatives launched by organizations (human rights, humanitarian, etc) all have the same goal: help the people living in danger and provide them assistance when needed. As you may already know, I truly think Tall oaks from little acorns grow, nevertheless I am not naive and I know ... More
Every Human Has Rights: 60 Signers for the 60th Anniversary



December 10th marks the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and a series of events will take place -almost- all around the world. More than ever, human rights and fundamental freedoms have to be respected but sixty years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed at Palais de Chaillot in Paris in 1948, the ...

Music of Africa: BLK JKS, from South Africa

I promise my next post will definitely be on a lighter note. Every day seems to bring a new round of bad ... More
Will the Sama Water Tank save the world?

The Sama from the World Of Sama, as you may know, have a duty: protect humans and sometimes plan ahead like the Sama Water Tank does. Water will soon be an issue, if not already; it is soon to be a rare commodity… The ocean noise, the constant sound of a waterfall, a fountain shooting up water, having a tub or simply drink it; water is essential for ...

Tall oaks from little acorns grow

There are only a few hours left before 2008 and this year like the year before, had its good and bad times. I already talked about non-profit organizations and peace movements on this blog, we are approaching the moment of the traditional new year’s resolutions, and this is when I look back and hope the new year coming will be better than this one. I ... More
Darfur: when History is a never ending story…

A few months ago, I posted an article on a French web site about the situation in Darfur. I thought it was time to write something about this conflict nobody would care about since no images from the disaster were available. It’s difficult to aware people about a conflict when we can’t show it, everybody knows chaos images are selling just like ... More
