YELENA, YEHUDA AND “PEACE FIGHTERS”
number of views: 234

Even if you follow the world news every day, it is possible that you have never heard about Elena, Yehuda or the “Peace Fighters”. Normally the media ignores these people or the stories of such people; instead they prefer to put articles illustrated with glamorous photos of politicians and movie stars in their media outlets.

Very few know that after the civil war in Macedonia, an OSCE Office worker named Elena, whose father is Muslim and mother is Christian, had for many years been the only one who managed to bring together Muslim Albanians and Christian Macedonians at a negotiation table.

Very few people know that an Israeli soldier named Yehuda, who currently resides in the Palestinian part of the City of Hebron, is someone who had invested a lot of his energy and efforts in the Israel Defense Force to resist the Palestinian troops, but one day he realized that whatever he had done before that moment would never bring peace to his country. Instead of fighting, Yehuda decided to invite Israelis to his city Hebron in the West Bank, so that they can see with their own eyes the conditions his fellow Palestinian citizens live in as a result of the Israeli occupation.    more»

YOUR DAUGHTER COULD BE THE PRESIDENT OF ARMENIA
number of views: 170

Your daughter could be the President of Armenia is the title of a new photo exhibit on display at Peace Dialogue and funded through a grant from the British organization, International Alert. This exhibit leads visitors through a journey of the existing roles of women in Armenia and other countries and the inequality that those roles promote. The exhibit concludes with a blank picture frame with the question “Who would I be if I were born” that confronts the effect of the high number of gender based abortions that take place in Armenia and the effect these abortions may have on the future of the country.    more»

LEARNING FROM EXPERIENCE
number of views: 313

“After our workshop when I look back I see so many things that I have failed to do or missed in my work before. I understand now that this workshop experience is colossal. We discovered a lot of things about ourselves, many things we would never have noticed. Before coming here, I thought we were going to merely discuss the past, however now it is clear that this topic is closely connected with the future also: it will really help us avoid mistakes in the future, which I really did not expect.”- These are the impressions of Roman, one of the Systemization of experience workshop participants representing Russian Federation.

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THE DEATH OF OUR CHILDREN.
number of views: 456

Peace Dialogue has launched a video campaign called “We Have a Right to Know the TRUTH!” The video campaign will consist of a series 30-second video-interviews with members of the families of soldiers who died in the Army in non-combat conditions. The focus of the video will be expressing their right to know what happened to their sons, husbands and brothers. We have found in our work documenting these deaths in the Safe Soldiers for a Safe Armenia project that many families do not believe the version of the “fatal accidents” that resulted in the death of their family members.    more»
