Kamala Sarup: How Peace Can Influence

How Peace Can Influence

By Kamala Sarup

In war, the first casualty is always the people like us. Key to success in all peace politics is generally thought to influence. However, there are a few suggestions floating around out there on how to make these affairs. Necessary majorities to originate needed peace legislation almost always can be obtained through peace negotiations. We should know that ever increasing discrimination will become crystal clear for war.

Have the peace activists around the world ever cared to be serious in their mission to minimize such war? People are more than convinced that peace only solve their hardships and difficulties.

Positive action can be possible but it has to be capable of embracing the total aspiration of the peace programs. The quality of life, living standard of the people and the overall economy have to improve. We cannot survive in violence. People have been suffer enough. Conflict exploitation must be quelled. This is what every citizen of the world is furiously aspiring for.

Some type of consultative body, an advisory panel or a national wise peace organizations should probably also be considered for total peace. This body theoretically should be amenable to the viewpoints of today's international globalization.

Close working relationships should probably be established with the world's humanitarian, peace rights organizations as well. There should be movement if the people are deprived of their fundamental rights.

We must committed to solve the violence through understanding. But it needs the cooperation.

How much peace can influence the people's life? As we all know, the Nepalese nation is caught in the cross currents of conflicts. Nepali life is being threatened.

UN And Peace

The notion of a Security Council with only 5 nations having power to control the other 185 + in world in obscene and unworkable. That why the UN should be reform, and a new world body established in its place with every member nation having an equal vote and say. And that body to have the funding and power to carry out the mandate of its charter.
