To meat or not to meat: reducing your eco-footprint
2009 - Volume 12 Number 2
Not everyone can afford solar panels or a hybrid car, but our diet is one thing that we have the power to change and make a definite impact with.
Eating less meat and animal products (even if that just means having one meat free day per week), or foregoing them altogether, is one small way for individuals to make an impact on some of the massive injustices facing our world today: from poverty and ill health, to environmental degradation and climate change.
Urgent: A fair and effective carbon pollution reduction scheme
2009 - Volume 12 Number 1
Good law must be based on good principles that are widely and clearly understood.
Australia must act now because the world must act now. Global agreement on meaningful targets is absolutely crucial and that also means participation in global cap and trade schemes. To participate in the negotiations and the global mechanisms, Australia must have its own cap and trade scheme.
Women and Peacemaking
2008 - Volume 11 Number 9
It is only recently that the international community has begun to recognise that women, as survivors of violent conflict, also bear the burden of reconstruction in the transition period. They are largely unseen and unacknowledged, instigators of peace. In the Pacific region, women have had a vital role in peacemaking although they have rarely been consulted or included in formal peace talks. Feminist voices for peace are needed if women in every culture who struggle for liberation and social justice are to be supported.
