Salaam to all my friends. I hope you all will be alright and enjoying the life. Actually nowadays I am again in trouble as Fatima is feeling pain in the chest. I think she has some heart problem. My children are very disturbed. I am also disturbed. Please pray for the health of Fatima. Actually the continued violence, frustration and depression have ruined Fatima's health. Please pray for her health.
I shall be praying for your peace and happiness.
Many many loves, thanks and blessins

When I born,
I didn't expect to be a woman
I was a human.
Developing my self
I discover how sensitive
and intuitive my gender
it is and by this point
I started to work,
to help and care about others
with my abilities and my heart.
Life is great
and be a woman is amazing.
I hope the differences change to be
a complement and the world
turn to one love.

Dearest Luisella

Thank you for drawing our attention to this - I intend to copy it to our News Group in the Women for a Change Community as many of our supporters are not a part of this group and I feel this is an important piece of news.

Please will you keep us updated and I shall be with you in my heart 18 - 19 on Wednesdays.

Love, hugs and abundant blessings
Jane :)

374 ° HOURS OF SILENCE FOR PEACE
Italy, Genoa,In the square by 374 weeks ....
...

We are a group of men and women, belonging to or not to political groups
and pacifist organizations, 374 weeks that manifested on every Wednesday
steps of the Ducal Palace of Genoa (Italy).

In September 2001, when there was the attack on twin towers, and the U.S.
attacked Afghanistan under the pretext of hunting Bin Laden, tried a way
to express our dismay and our indignation.

We decided to take the 'quiet time', a modes of expression already
implemented several times in history: for example supported by
U.S. Suffragette and Black Women in Jerusalem.

The Ducal Palace, before which we then meet every Wednesday from 18 to 19,
is a place of particular significance, not only for our city. There held the
G8,at 2001 year, the assembly by the eight pre-powerful arrogate the right to decide the
fate of the planet, and which together with thousands of other / and we
helped to challenge.

When we started we thought no doubt that we would be left / and the streets
for eight years.

But certainly we could not stop our protest when Italy was directly involved
in military operations in Afghanistan when the U.S. attacked even Iraq (this
time under the guise of research of "weapons of mass destruction"), when
Italy also, and most faithful obedient U.S. ally, has agreed to be also involved
in that war.

We expressed our indignation at the false "peace missions" in which
the Italian army was involved, starting with the one in Lebanon,
where, to separate two contenders, was only an international force on
the territory of the attacked, and we have solidarity the nonviolent
struggle of the Burmese people, and we have continued to seek truth and
justice in the processes associated with the G8, we have declared all of
"subversive" when heavy accusation has been addressed by the judiciary to
those who protested against one of the G8 preparatory meetings in March 2000
in Naples.

Conscious of our limited resources, we have distributed to passersby
in these eight years well 142.200 flyers and spoke with everyone every
time we have had the opportunity

Neither the local nor the national ones have never shown to realize our
demands. But we believe that the war cannot solve any problems of humanity
but only serve to increase the profits of who builds and sells weapons,
to maintain an "international order" inhumane, to concentrate in few hands
control international economy.

For this reason we continue to see us every Wednesday, from 18 to 19, on
the steps of the ducal palace
- For an international policy of justice and peace, to prevent that 20%
of the inhabitants of the planet is hoarding 80% of resources
- For the conversion into civil war trades.
- For the reduction of military expenditure to the benefit of social.
- Against all wars, and for the withdrawal of Italian troops from all theaters of war.
