They also commemorated the important work of Comandanta Ramona as an example of struggle to be followed.

Women’s rights, sexual and reproductive health and….revolution?

30-12-2007 05:59

Since 1994, the Zapatista's have placed women's rights and participation at the centre of their social and health agenda, including the promotion of sexual and reproductive rights. Today the Zapatistas run a health system autonomous from the Mexican government that includes community educators, trained midwives, community clinics and an autonomous hospital. This transformation is promoting women's sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Traces of the Authoritarian Personality in the Three Abrahamic Religions (subtit

29-12-2007 21:57

We will examine whether terror is institutionalized in the psychology of some religions—particularly focusing on a sense of justice. There are many interesting and provocative ideas discussed. Arguably, this work is as controversial as it is timely. Such an intelligence estimate, if you will, would not have been written had it not related to many important and critical political issues and crises of our day (particularly as related to dominant “cultural clashes” as so framed by various think-tanks). But this work also significantly relates to political theory, history, criminal justice, jurisprudence, as well as social and political psychology etc.

Friar Louis Cappio must live

28-12-2007 14:36

The Brazilian semi-arid is immense: 912 thousand square km. It is populous: 22 million people in rural areas. It is the most rainy of the planet: 750 mm / year, on average, which corresponds to 760 billion cubic meters of rainfall per year. It is not true, therefore, that there is no water there. The nature provides it, but it is wasted: the waters evaporate quickly, under the strong sun, or go soon away, running on the crystalline waterproof ground.

The History of Inquisition tells a lot about Good and Evil in the Roman Church.

26-12-2007 13:28

The Inquisition was the worst form of santified cruelty ever visited on earth.
It was sanctioned by the Vatican, and executed by the Dominicans.
No person was safe, even the great astronomer Galileo was excommunicated from the church when he stated that the earth revolved around the sun.
Burnings at the stake may be history, but how many innocent people and their Families have been left hung out to dry.

Lakota Sioux - The Bravest Americans

25-12-2007 16:28

In September of this year, the United Nations passed a non-binding Resolution on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Naturally, Canada, the United States and Australia refused to sign, but this resolution paved the way for a move that has been waiting in the wings, so to speak, since the 1970s.

On Wednesday of this week, Russell Means led a delegation of the Lakota Sioux people to the U.S. State Department and the embassies of Bolivia, Chile, South Africa and Venezuela, declaring their secession from the United States of America.
