Dave Anderson MP visits to Kenya and the Middle East

Posted by peacedevelopmentnetwork on February 16, 2009

There has been considerable interest in Dave Anderson MP’s support for the good works of the Universal Peace Federation.

Click here for a report of the visit to the Middle East in 2007. This includes a visit to a hospital in Bethlehem, the work with Israeli and Palestinian Doctors, meeting trade union representatives, the support for the Bereaved Family Forum who are seeking reconciliation rather than revenge, briefings and appointments with Israeli and Palestinian politicians and bringing together of religious leaders of all sides. During his visit Dave Anderson was able to question Dr Mustafa Bhargouti, Palestinian Minister of Communication and Mr Oded Ben Haim, Director of Palestinian Affairs Division of the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In Kenya the conference included a clean up of the Nairobi river, a UN project that the UPF sought to promote. There were further activities, including a football tournament that brought together the tribes that were engaged in post-election violence in Kenya.

The conference in Nairobi was attended by Kenyan Prime Minister and Mrs Odinga, former Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, Bishop Abel Muzorewa, former Prime Minister of Romania, Victor Ciorbea, former President of Slovakia Michel Kovac and former President of Sierra Leone Ahmed Kabbah, as well as many other parliamentarians from across the world.

Politicians of a wide spectrum of backgrounds have participated in Universal Peace Federation, or its preceding organisation, Inter-religious International Federation for World Peace, events.

The Global Peace Festival is held every two years bringing together activists, NGO’s and other organisations and institutions that share a common vision for peace of one family of humankind, and who wish to assist the United Nations in achieving the Millennium Development Goals. This festival is a platform from which they can all share their ideas and endeavours and create the opportunity to celebrate their achievements, develop partnerships and launch new initiatives together.

The Festival is not just an event but a process that in Kenya and elsewhere have been acknowledged to have inspired interfaith and intercultural activities, a series of youth service projects and reconciliation activities.

We look forward to seeing you on the 16th of October. RSVP to reserve your place.

Yours sincerely
