Phil EhrlichJulian Sanjivan & I will be there to witness this discourse. My 2nd time at a UN held LGBTI discussion. Kudos to the Core Group of UN member countries the the two Human Rights orgs who are spearheading this dialogue many have been requesting for decades. Is it three generations needed to see a societal change move from one stance to a new world understanding? What are the components needed during that transition of thought to most effectively and efficiently see each generation builds from the groundwork others have started for each uncharted path in cultural shifts? How can we tweak our process to see something accomplished and accepted within two generations? The answer is not holding a gun to someone's head, but hopefully with some forward thinkers coming together to shake hands and openly listen to one another's position over a cup of tea or a refreshing iced Coke. If a prejudice prevents someone from entering the room where one dialogue is happening, should we allow them to request space to be heard on issues they hold dear? There is no reason any diplomat should stay out of an open dialogue. The worst thing that might occur is they learn something. I personally don't eat fish. That doesn't mean when dining with others, that they are not free to choose seafood. It also doesn't prevent me from going into a Red Lobster restaurant... they offer a very nice steak for a reasonable price.

Ucrc MissionUN, Biafrans are being killed in their own land by Nigerian soldiers for calling for renferedum to determine their further existence in Nigeria. The Biafrans has maintained a peaceful/armless, lawful but resolute agitation for their freedom in the face of death and terrible intimidations. They refuse to pick up weapons to defend themselves for not being misconstrued for terrorists, yet they are being killed in their dozens. Please, UN intervention is very very necessary now before this mess escalates to full blown war. From my personal view i see that Biafrans are not really happy and have decided to give one Nigeria a quit but not really by war as peaceful people. I thereby plead with UN to quickly interven before many souls would eventually perish, God forbid. Thanks. Pastor Ikechukwu Joshua Eziefula.
