Global Campaign for Peace Education - monthly newsletter/digest
---

Dear subscriber,

Welcome to the November 2016 monthly digest of the Global Campaign for Peace Education! 

This month we feature Colombian civil society post-referendum peacebuilding efforts through peace education. The possibility for the emergence of the accords in the first place should and could be attributed to the educational efforts pursued by NGOs and community partners for decades. Leaders such as Amada Benavides de Perez (see her reflections below) have been laying the groundwork for civil society cooperation, teacher training, and community-based efforts.  Amada's organization, Fundacion Escuelas de Paz, in partnership with several other NGOs, has already begun work on teacher training in formerly FARC controlled areas.

We also encourage you to read the inspirational manifesto authored by the Colectivo Educacion para la Paz in Colombia. It declares important principles relevant to peace education in any context.

What we are witnessing in Colombia is a reminder that there is no peacebuilding without peace education.

And once again, our gentle monthly plea: please help us "spread peace ed" by using the hashtags #SpreadPeaceEd and #PeaceEd, following us on social media, and by sharing and reposting news on your timeline and in your communities.  The Global Campaign is very active on Facebook and Twitter.  

In peace & solidarity,

Tony Jenkins
Coordinator, Global Campaign for Peace Education

Reflections from a Peace Educator on the Possibility of Peace in Colombia

Reflections from a Peace Educator on the Possibility of Peace in Colombia

A note from the editors:

Amada Benavides de Peréz is President of Fundación Escuelas de Paz, a peace education NGO in Colombia. She is a long time member of the Global Campaign for Peace Education.

Amada attended the September 26 ceremonious signing of the peace accord between the Colombian government and FARC. She and colleagues have been working tirelessly developing and training networks of formal and non-formal educators for decades, contributing to the foundational peacebuilding work that made the peace agreements possible. In the coming months, Fundacion Escuelas de Paz, in partnership with UNICEF, IOM and USAID will be coordinating peace education efforts in territories formerly controlled by the FARC.

In the message below, Amada offers her reflections on a turbulent week that began with hope, only to collide with confusion and exasperation following the "NO" vote on the referendum.  

We stand in solidarity with Amada, the peace educators and the citizens of Colombia for their continued courage in pursuit of peace through education.

Reflections from a Peace Educator on the Possibility of Peace in Colombia

By Amada Benavides de Pérez
President, Fundación Escuelas de Paz
Bogotá, Colombia

el artículo original en español

Dear colleagues and friends:

I am ready to give an answer to your kind communications and contributions of support and solidarity, after a week of disquietude.

Let me begin, taking up a phrase of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, which is circulating through social networks, that looks like it was written for this moment and identifies how things happen in this country - between amazement and madness, surprise and indignation.

It was as if God had decided to put to the test every capacity for surprise and was keeping the inhabitants of Macondo in a permanent alternation between excitement and disappointment, doubt and revelation, to such an extreme that no one knew for certain where the limits of reality lay.

- One Hundred Years of Solitude

On September 26 we were filled with excitement, attending the signing ceremony of the peace agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC. The assistants who attended from all corners of the country, full of hope, all dressed in white, vibrated with excitement when the FARC apologized to the victims and the country for all the damage they caused.

The Government, relying on general support for the agreements, insists that they must be countersigned by the plebiscite. The country is polarized, but there is confidence that “YES” will win.

On October 2, several factors, from climate to general apathy, lead to 60% abstention. And the big surprise…the victory of the “NO”, by a very narrow margin, less than 0.4%. A kind of desolation and bitterness covers the entire country. Hopelessness and crying is the common name. There is total uncertainty about what might happen, how the guerrillas will react, about the fate of four years of negotiation. Promoters of “NO”, perplexed, don’t know how to address this triumph. They never thought about winning.

After the deep sadness, the analysis: the Government was overconfident and didn’t make a strong campaign; “NO” promoters collected the feeling of part of the country; Christian churches provided a large number of voters by appealing to gender ideology.

The day after the referendum, the reaction: youth marches are called throughout the country. Bogotá was full of lights on the night of Wednesday, October 5; the multitudinous “March of Silence” advocates for continuance with the agreement in Havana; and protesters camp in the Plaza de Bolivar and promise not leave until the Government continues the Agreements.

Thursday, October 6, a bombshell: the manager of the NO campaign gives statements relating fraudulent and deceptive methods used to promote NO, appealing to the fear and anger of the people, with dirty propaganda, directed to different parts of the country and different social strata, and reveals the name of the companies that contributed to this campaign. He is pleased by the achievement, but his statements cause immediate reaction from political, social and economic sectors. Resignation from the party and the prosecution opens investigation into electoral fraud.

Tomorrow, we’re going to San Vicente del Caguan, to begin our program of “Schools for Peace” in 12 institutions, in the territory that was the heart of FARC operations. We must be there right now.

And on Friday, the news of the Nobel Prize to President Santos. There is unanimous opinion saying that the country is well deserved, for the effort he has made to take forward the peace process. For some sectors, the award must also be given to the FARC negotiator but this would not been prudent given the amount of resentment and the pain they have caused. Santos offers the award for the eight million victims of violence in the country.

On that morning, the joint statement from Havana:

After receiving the news, the Guerrilla and Government negotiators in La Habana deliver a joint statement with four points: They reaffirm their commitment to the Final Agreement, underlining its legitimacy.

• They recognize that the plebiscite obtained a slightly higher vote for NO and they are open to listen to the concerns and proposals from this sector of society in order to achieve a solution. These adjustments will be discussed between the Government and FARC-EP.

• They reiterate their commitment to keep the Definitive Ceasefire and the monitoring and verification on behalf of the tripartite mechanism from the Government, FARC-EP and the mission coordination from the United Nations, as well as the guarantees of safety and protection of the communities in their territories according to the Protocol defined by all parts.

• They solicit the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the Security Council for their authorization to the United Nations Mission in Colombia to exercise the functions under the Mechanism of Monitoring and Verification. They also invite all countries that are contributing to the Mission with unarmed observers to keep on deploying their men and women, emphasizing that all the safety conditions needed will be guaranteed.

• They keep on with the application of the humanitarian measures, such as the quest for all missing persons, the anti-landmine operations pilot plans, the voluntary substitution of illicit crops, and their commitment to the exit of minors from the camps and the persons deprived from freedom.

Although the text of the Joint Statement is not directly a result of the prize, without doubt it contributed positive input.

Meanwhile, we continue to work on peace building through education for peace, thinking it will be the only way to change this situation that overwhelms us.

Tomorrow, we’re going to San Vicente del Caguan, to begin our program of “Schools for Peace” in 12 institutions, in the territory that was the heart of FARC operations. We must be there right now.

A hug to everyone for your solidarity.

AMADA BENAVIDES DE PÉREZ

Therefore, the fun and educational astronomy activities and workshops successfully enabled the participants to reach a collective understanding of these ideas.

The Power of a Dinner Table

The Power of a Dinner Table

David Brooks, in a recent NY Times Op Ed, shares a powerful model of non-formal community/family-based peace education.
Kathy Fletcher and David Simpson have a son named Santi, who went to Washington, D.C., public schools. Santi had a friend who sometimes went to school hungry. So Santi invited him to occasionally eat and sleep at his house. That friend had a friend and that friend had a friend, and now when you go to dinner at Kathy and David’s house on Thursday night there might be 15 to 20 teenagers crammed around the table. The kids who show up at Kathy and David’s have endured the ordeals of modern poverty: homelessness, hunger, abuse, sexual assault. Almost all have seen death firsthand — to a sibling, friend or parent.

Inspiring Youth demand more space in the Peace Movement

At the IPB Disarmament Congress in Berlin the first weekend in October around 40 young people from 15 different nations met during a Youth Gathering. Pressenza interviewed three of them: Marie Cucurella from France, Emma Pritchard from England and Simon Ott from Germany.

When asked to constructively criticize the Congress, all three become rather lively: “They always say: Engage the Youth! But then they do not give us space.” Emma says that the Youth had an important perspective to contribute, a perspective that is also valuable. “The goal would be that we no longer have Youth Gatherings in the future but that we participate on equal terms”, Marie says.

With this posting the Global Campaign for Peace Education begins a series on “Disarmament Education for Global Citizenship.” Each posting will address a concept, transition strategy, nonviolent global institution or civil society initiative that could be a practical component of a disarmed world.

We start with this video on Unarmed Civilian Protection, a civil society initiative undertaken by the Nonviolent Peace Force in various conflict areas of the world, similar to actions undertaken by various non-governmental organizations.

How to Introduce Gender in History Teaching, a publication of the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR), focuses on gender as a missing lens when teaching history in school. The silencing of women’s involvement in Cyprus history results in the neglecting of the multiple ways in which they have contributed to and participated in society. After reviewing the different ways Greek-Cypriot as well as Turkish-Cypriot women have been kept absent from school history, we conclude with eight lesson plans for teaching history from a gender perspective.
