Environmental protection is peace work

The kenian environmentalist Wangari Maathai received the nobel peace prize in 2004.
As justification for this, the Oslo nobel peace prize committee said:
"We decided to give the prize because of the fact
that an intact environment is the base for peace".




The african reforestation union congratulates Mr. Ron Williams (external Link)
for the award of the german order of merit (Bundesverdienstorden).
The american entertainer received this great award for his
dedication in integrating foreigners in Germany.
Much emphasis was placed on the "Tour für Toleranz" , (external Link)
a project by Mr. Williams, whereby he leads discussions about violence,
hate and intolerance at schools.
Mr. Williams is and has been a friend and member of our union for many years.
