Expanding on our Wholistic Peace Institute Home Page
Here in America’s Pacific Northwest we must face that some of our basic human rights are being infringed upon. This fact sets up a platform from which we can Fight Against Fear and Re-establish our Peaceful Home:
• Homeless (Article 21 Right to Adequate Standard of Living),
• Nuclear Annihilation & Techno-phobia - cybertheft, identity theft, online fraud, slavery, indoctrination into cults Jihad (Article 28 Right to a Free and Fair World Peace and Security),
• Bans on immigration (Article 1 Free and Equal),
• Human trafficking (Article 4 Freedom from Slavery),
• Military build-up Neo-Nazis and Anti-fascist resurgence unlike the times after the second world war (28- Right to A Free and Fair World)
