- Nov 16, 2010Thanks for the paper Goldy. I hope to have time to go through it soon. I suspect it will reflect issues that are present in maybe all countries of the world. The mining and drilling giants are so powerful and have convinced so many people that nothing bad is happening. It will take a massive movement of the marginalized to raise this issue loud enough to make a difference.max2010/11/16 Goldy George <goldymgeorge10@...>[Attachment(s) from Goldy George included below]SORRY FOR CROSS POSTINGDear friends:I am sending you a paper on mining and its impact on people, communities and state.

Creation of a casteless and peaceful society is indeed the first step towards just, egalitarian, and harmonious society. A society of equals, neither unequal nor more-equals, beyond the strings of caste, class, gender, race, ethnicity, etc. Otherwise it leads to social oppression, political exploitation, economic deprivation, cultural domination, gender discrimination, class isolation, deliberate exclusion. Lets’ believe in a society beyond this.Goldy M. George

"Dialogue demands more courage than waging war. It takes you to that uncomfortable space where you have to question your own assumptions and, rather than speak on other people's behalf, truly listen to what they have to say, take it into consideration, and present your own views in a way that addresses the misunderstandings that have arisen." Haider Al-Mosawi
You Westerners have been coming to the Holy Land for centuries to visit the shrines,
the dead stones. But you do not see the living stones – the human beings who live
and struggle before your eyes. I say ‘Wake up!’ What matters are the living stones!
(Father Elias Chacour, cited in Bush, 1996)
