When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
All conflicts are different. Some circle around lack of water, land or the ability to find a market to sell their products. Some countries have totalitarian opressive regimes, some conflicts are between actors not easily dealt with in international law such as indigenous or nomadic people.
I generally find it hard define conflicts according to a people, ethnic group, nation or culture -simply because I find these concepts too wide to be easily defined. If you have good definitions of the four groups above, please feel free to elaborate.
Can we change the world?

När jag var i Israel/Palestina i början av 1990 talet var det nästan fred.
Eller åtminstone kändes det så när jag köpte en tröja med ett träd på med texten "Free Palestine" och vandrade själv omkring på platserna där Jesus gick.
I woke up this mornin' and none of the news was good
And death machines were rumblin' 'cross the ground where Jesus stood
And the man on my TV told me that it had always been that way
And there was nothin' anyone could do or say
And I almost listened to him
Yeah, I almost lost my mind
Then I regained my senses again
And looked into my heart to find
Jag skall tänka på dig när jag hör krigstrummorna
