Part One:     MAKING PEACE ON EARTH, POSSIBLE      History has proved the improbable notion that non-violent campaigns do work.   From the Quakers, to the Non-Violent Peaceforce, Unarmed Bodyguards and Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, many such groups have formed for the purpose of staving-off violent confrontations through negotiation, advocacy and acting as eyewitness.  One such organization, Christian Peacemaker Teams was built on the premise, ‘what would happen if Christians devoted the same discipline and self-sacrifice to non-violent peacemaking as armies devote to war?’  On today’s show we talk with a member of Christian Peacemaker Teams, Maryknoll Sister Rosemarie Milazzo.

 

Part Two:    MAKING PEACE ON EARTH POSSIBLE      Civilian peacekeeping teams often represent an international and non-denominational unit and thus call global attention to a cause.   Physically blocking acts of violence by their mere presence can be quite effective, especially now thanks to the Internet, Blogosphere and social networking sites.  Governments are rightfully wary of bad P.R.!   We return to our conversation with Rosemarie Milazzo.
