Mérida, Yucatán will be the host city of the 17th Nobel Peace Summit in 2019.

The Permanent Secretariat of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates together with the Government of the State of Yucatán, are pleased to announce that the next Nobel Peace Summit will be hosted in Mérida, México between 19-22 September 2019.

The World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates established in 1999 is one of the most relevant and renowned events related to the peace dialogue around the world, and this year it celebrates its 20th anniversary since its inception.

Mérida, the host city, better known as the white city and center of the Mayan Culture in Mexico, has been considered a great example in the promotion of cultural appreciation and the participation of society for granting peace and harmony.

Nobel Peace Laureate and former President of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev in his message to the next Summit stated: “In the 20 years of its existence the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates has made a significant contribution to the development of ideas and principles of the new thinking in world politics through its activities and statements. I’m grateful both to the participants of the Summit and to the Permanent Secretariat for their long-lasting efforts for global peace.”

“We appreciate the opportunity to have the Summit in the country with a rich historical and cultural background, that through its diversity reminds us permanently about the relevance of being able to connect modern civilization to the roots and wisdom of ancient legacy. We truly believe that the Summit will contribute not only to Mexican society, but to everyone who is willing to understand the importance and value of diversity for human relations” – said Ekaterina Zagladina, President of the Permanent Secretariat of the Summit.

Also, Mauricio Vila Dosal, Governor of the State of Yucatán, commented: “We are very proud to have the opportunity to host the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, it is an unprecedented event in Mexico and in Merida. It is an opportunity for a unique dialogue, in which we invite the Mexican people, the business sector, the Government and political parties, to work hand in hand, in order to start a national peace movement in which it is demonstrated that from a social reconciliation it is possible to build a better society, and that we can recover the quality of life that should prevail in every society, and that this movement in turn, became a model that can be replicated for the benefit of humanity.”

This year the Summit will have both, discussion panels with the Nobel Peace Laureates and Nobel Peace awarded organizations, as well as the educational program “Leading by Example” – the program aims to educate students in peacebuilding, leadership and ethics according to Nobel Peace Laureates legacy.

Over the years, the World Summits of Nobel Peace Laureates have been honoured with the participation of numerous Nobel Peace Laureate and Nobel Peace Organisations, including: President Mikhail Gorbachev, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, President Shimon Peres, President Lech Walesa, President Jimmy Carter, President José Ramos-Horta, Dr. Shirin Ebadi, Lord David Trimble, Professor John Hume, President Kim Dae Yung, President Juan Manuel Santos and other globally recognised leaders.

Previous host landmark cities included Rome, Paris, Berlin, Hiroshima, Warsaw, Chicago, Bogota and Barcelona. During the last Summit that took place in Bogotá in February 2017, 28 Nobel Peace Laureates joined Colombia’s call, gathering 18.358 attendees during 4 days of the event, more than 40.000 people connected via streaming; around 800 youth from more than 50 countries participated in the Leading by Example program, and more than 500 journalists helped to spread the peace message during that unique moment that Colombia was experiencing in its national history.

Michelle Fridman Hirsch, head of the Ministry of Tourism in Yucatan (SEFOTUR), explained: “Institutions like the Permanent Secretariat of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates gave us the opportunity to host such an important event, something that will help us to consolidate Yucatan as a destination where important events can be realized with excellent results thanks to the hotel infrastructure, the airport connections and the endless tourist attractions that we have in Yucatan.”

The Summit is free for public access. Further information on how to participate will be available soon at www.nobelpeacesummit.com

19.02.2019 – El Paso, Texas – Pressenza New York

Hunger Strike Continues into 7th Week on day of Trump’s Visit to El Paso

The “El Paso 9” continue their hunger strike into the 7th week at the El Paso Processing Center. Nine of 11 Sikh asylum seekers are being violently force-fed by ICE staff and late last week all nine were thrown into solitary confinement after refusing to be force-fed standing up, according to their attorney.

Detention staff restrain the men and feeding tubes are forced through their noses, down their throats, and into their stomachs, according to their attorney Liquids are being delivered directly through IVs in their arms. They say they are suffering from rectal and nasal bleeding alongside persistent, crippling stomach and throat pain. Poorly administered IVs have left deep bruises on their arms.
The United Nations last week issued a statement voicing concern that their treatment might be contravening the UN convention against torture.

“The abuse the “El Paso 9″ are facing is part of a persistent pattern of criminalization and dehumanization of migrants through government policies and actions,” said Lourdes Ortiz, of Detained Migrant Solidarity Committee (DMSC). “Statistics may show that El Paso is “safe,” but the community must push for this safety to extend to everyone. ICE detention is a prime example of so-called security that involves violence and the use of force. We must be ready to reject it and not allow harmful structures that undermine this city’s safety ”

Lakshmi Sridaran of South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) said: “For years now we’ve tracked the physical and psychological abuse of asylum seekers at the hands of ICE staff in this facility. The intentionally opaque detention system makes civil rights and due process violations repeatedly possible with little oversight. President Trump is rallying for border security today in El Paso while ICE officials engage in a culture of violence and retaliation.”

DMSC, SAALT, and 25 partner organizations submitted a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, calling for the immediate release of the asylum seekers on hunger strike at the El Paso Processing Center and an investigation into the facility. Community groups launched a petition to support the hunger strikers at the El Paso Processing Center.


Detained Migrant Solidarity Committee (DMSC) is a community group based in El Paso, TX, that fights to free the border from the criminalization and mass incarceration of migrants. We aim to reach this goal through support services, organizing, and actions that promote more humane public policy and respect for migrants and other marginalized communities.

South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) is a national, nonpartisan, non-profit organization that fights for racial justice and advocates for the civil rights of all South Asians in the United States.

Ohio Yearly Meeting sponsors a variety of events, programs and organizations throughout the year. These include:

The Friends Center of Ohio Yearly Meeting

On Stillwater's Porch

The Friends Center is a retreat and conference center for outreach for the Christian unprogrammed Quakerism of Ohio Yearly Meeting. The Friends Center expresses Ohio Yearly Meeting’s grounding in Christian faith and its tradition of hospitality for spiritual seekers. Here we can explore, articulate and share an understanding of Quaker faith and practice that is both unprogrammed and Christian. While that faith is rooted in the experience and writings of earlier Friends, we seek to express it in ways appropriate to the language and conditions of our own time. OYM’s witness was shaped by its original rural location in the hills of eastern Ohio. Thus, the Friends Center is an appropriate place in which to explore issues affecting rural life and community as they grow out of faith. [read more]

The 20 Warmest Years on Record Have Been in the Past 22 Years – The Degree of Warming during the Past Four Years Has Been Exceptional, Both on Land and in Ocean’
UNICEF/Adrak | Khair (left) is the father of seven children, who is no longer able to feed them. The drought has destroyed his land in Daykundi Province, Afghanistan; and this year he harvested nothing. (June 2018)

In the wake of data released by the United Nations World Meteorological Organization (WMO), showing the past four years were officially the ‘four warmest on record,’ UN Secretary-General António Guterres called for urgent climate action and increased ambition, ahead of his climate summit in September.

His reaction came after WMO issued a report confirming that 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 were the four warmest years recorded to date.

The analysis, based on the monitoring performed by five leading international organisations, also shows that the global average surface temperature in 2018 was approximately 1° Celsius above the pre-industrial (1850-1900) baseline.

The long-term temperature trend is far more important than the ranking of individual years, and that trend is an upward one,” said WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas. “The 20 warmest years on record have been in the past 22 years. The degree of warming during the past four years has been exceptional, both on land and in the ocean.

Temperatures are only part of the story. Extreme and high impact weather affected many countries and millions of people, with devastating repercussions for economies and ecosystems in 2018,” he said.

“Many of the extreme weather events are consistent with what we expect from a changing climate. This is a reality we need to face up to. Greenhouse gas emission reduction and climate adaptation measures should be a top global priority,” said Mr. Taalas.

Noting “with concern” this data, which was first released in November 2018, UN Secretary-General Guterres said it confirms “the urgency of addressing climate action”, and echoes the science presented by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its October 2018 special report on the impacts of a global warming of 1.5°C.

The IPCC report that found that limiting global warming to 1.5°C will require “rapid and far-reaching transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities” and that global net emissions of carbon dioxide, attributable to human activity, would need to fall by about 45 per cent from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching ‘net zero’ around 2050.

The Secretary-General stated that, “to make these transformations, we need to significantly increase the global level of climate action and ambition”.

In order to mobilize political will, Mr. Guterres is convening a Climate Summit on 23 September this year, focusing on nine key areas:

  1. Raised ambition on climate mitigation measures.
  2. How to manage the transition to alternative energy sources.
  3. Managing industrial transition.
  4. Coming up with solutions through agriculture, oceans, forests and nature-related environments.
  5. Focus on infrastructure, cities and through local action.
  6. Issues of climate finance, notably carbon pricing.
  7. Increased resilience and adaptation, especially for the most vulnerable.
  8. A focus on social and political drivers.
  9. Citizen and political mobilization.

The Secretary-General is working closely with Member States and non-party stakeholders to enable outcomes in these areas to the Summit, in order to send “strong market and political signals that can inject momentum into the race” to meet the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement, in which countries committed collectively to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

Informing the discussions at the Summit alongside other key scientific reports, WMO will issue the full 2018 State of the Climate report this coming March.  It will provide a comprehensive overview of temperature variability and trends, high-impact events, and key indicators of long-term climate change such as increasing carbon dioxide concentrations; Arctic and Antarctic sea ice; sea level rise and ocean acidification.

It will be accompanied by UN-wide policy recommendations statement for decision-makers on the interplay between weather, climate and water supply, and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). (SOURCE: UN News).

We must act and dare the appropiateness and not whatever comes to our mind not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it, freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong, Obedience performs blindly but Freedom is wide awake Freedom wants to know why, Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive obedient man respects God’s commands and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands. Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
