Conversations in Peace

Event Date:

Location: 
GleeBooks upstairs @ 49 Glebe Point Road, Glebe, Sydney,

To be launched by Dame Marie Bashir plus film of 'Conversations in Peace' introduced by philanthropist, Steve Killelea

The first fourteen recipients of the Sydney Peace Prize (1998-2011), included Nobel Laureates Mohammad Yunus and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former leader of Amnesty International Irene Khan, the Indian novelist Arundhati Roy, environmental scientist Dr. Vandana Shiva, Aboriginal leader Patrick Dodson, and the inimitable academic activist Professor Noam Chomsky.

These inspiring individuals imagine a future of such respect for human rights that no-one on earth will have to struggle. In highly creative ways they show how poverty can be eradicated, non-violence embraced, the rich and powerful persuaded that peace with justice is precious and that violence of any kind is not only contrary to any notion of a common humanity but also serves no purpose.
