Hello Agnese! Thank you for your letter, which I share with Janet Feldman's
Holistic Helping. Yes, please feel free to unsubscribe from groups if there
are too many for you. You can always see all of our groups at
Different people are in different groups, but there is
overlap and so we are able to help each other. Of course, we can't all fit
in one group!
I am currently in Nablus, Israeli-occupied Palestine, and so it is difficult
for me to communicate by Skype. I am developing a course for nonviolent
engagement, both theory and practice. A few days ago I engaged a little boy
with a rock in his hand to see if he might give me the rock. Soon a crowd of
boys surrounded us. I don't speak Arabic but I let him know that he was smart
and strong and that he didn't need the rock. Then I showed him that I could
do thirty push-ups and that I didn't need a rock. They were very excited and
put down their rocks and started chanting gloriously as we marched along.
Yesterday I went to the security checkpoint with a letter which I wrote to
the checkpoint commander. It was delivered and then I was told to come and
we discussed for about fifteen minutes the various kinds of "fighting
peacefully" that they might allow by the Palestinians. So that was exciting
to see that indeed, if approached "from their point of view" it is possible
to do what many people think is impossible. Today I gave a three hour
lecture in the Mathematics Department about my mathematics work and also
nonviolence and our lab. I will be here for another two weeks.
Yes, I'm excited by Samwel's great work in Tanzania. I am sad to hear about
William's cruel misfortune and I wish him a quick recovery. I am glad that
they are all working well together. I share my letter with Samwel's new
for "motivation through sacrifice" ("men
without food"). We're all welcome to join, send a blank message to
It's exciting to have a group led from
Africa. Thank you to Janet, Pamela, Agnese and all for making this possible!

> I trayed to chat with you through Skype. I really would like to
communicate with you, lately I couldn't read all messages and I refuse this
kind of fragmented communication. Anyway I read the majority of messages. I
can't follow messages of Karagal and Arabic groups.Although I'm very
interested in developing contact with muslim people and culture. I would like
to be more informed regarding the project set up by Mayor of Rome to join
together the main religions into a cultural program for Rome. It
> should be edited a magazine and organized meetings. When I'll be informed
I'll update you.
> Regarding the visit of Samwel in Tanzania, it is progressing well. I don't
want to interfere into it and I see it as a Tanzanian-Kenyan initiative. I'll
support this visit and i'll see what they decide.

expert and active..therefore I got new ideas...
