The Universal Peace Federation - UK is very saddened to hear of the tragic events of London Bridge and Borough Market. Our thoughts and prayers must be with the families and friends of those who have lost their lives or were injured last night and in other recent incidents. It is even more sad that these indiscriminate killings were in the name of ‘Allah’. Islam is a peaceful religion but a tiny number have chosen to use terrorist violence as a misguided expression of their faith.  We must maintain the unity of the communities within the UK because within the common values that all faiths hold, as well as those who profess no faith, is the inherent strength of the United Kingdom.

Genocide Genocide

On April 20th Universal Peace Federation (UPF) UK held an annual genocide awareness event. The Video Link is here.  Two important issues were raised by several people: 1) That different groups of activists in unrelated genocidal incidents can support each other to achieve recognition by the international community. 2) Awareness of the typical stages of genocide improve the chance to take pre-emptive measures to prevent mass killing. Please see The Prisma article, 'A Genocide Does Not Just Happen, We Allow it to Happen' by Marcos Ortiz Finch, about the evening.

 T.S. Eliot, (in Four Quartets) said that humanity cannot bear too much reality. Humanity certainly cannot face the reality of genocide. Why am I interested in Genocide? As a child who escaped the Holocaust by coming to England at age four on the KT, I live with 1.5 million children murdered by the Nazis because they were not rescued. How many brilliant musicians, scientists, leaders of all kinds have we lost in my generation. One of those 1.5 million children might have made much better use of the chance of rescue than I ever can. So I do what I can to raise awareness of the truth about genocide.
