Voice

If we really had a voice what might we say?

Give us money or give us peace.

We have no money
We have no peace.
Do we have voice?

We need a voice
A BIG voice

“There is a significant gap between language inscribed in our Security Resolutions, our declarations, our action plans, and the actual reality of women’s participation in decision-making when it comes to peace and security issues.”
– Radhika Coomaraswamy

What do I think?

Well if anyone really wants to know … if the war-mongers are not going to allow women a voice then they should be paying women for this enforced silence. How? Basic Income. Guarantee every woman a basic income.

Maybe that is something the UN might consider.
Yes the reports are valuable. What might be better is to give the money to individual women. Help women buy back their lives and the lives of their children.

an Action Plan

Action Plan? … Cut the Crap and give us money … BIG money!

20 Years ago, if we had had a voice, what might we have said?

Cut the Crap. Give us money.

Are there no women of voice? Hardly … Unless they belong to certain SIGs
That would be Special Interest Groups … Meaning that they work for their own special interests, whatever that might mean …
Business for example.
Yes, it is a women’s organization. It probably does take good care of its members. If you are not a member? If you happen to be an independent artist, especially one that dares try to paddle her canoe upstream? Hmmmmm well I’ve never been privy to their constitution. I guess I think of them as the old girls’ network. I don’t know that they would support basic income.

Peace

Peace.

So … What happened happened
No peace without justice
No justice in poverty
No good in despair

The Rock Opera continues.

At the end of an act, Maggie turns to George
“The Veterans? You say they have the best interests of the Veterans at heart? I tell you George … The veterans I’ve spoken to all say the same thing. You might all say they are singing the same tune. Even the old vets whose memory might be a bit fuzzy. They all are singing the same tune. In order to keep it simple the song has one word. That way nobody can say they can’t remember the lyrics.

The word? Since you ask, I’ll tell you George …
Mr. Music, are you still here?

Rather … I’ll sing to you … The only word that seems to make sense at this point. You sing along with me and each of us will invite someone else to join in. On and on …
We’ll keep repeating it over and over until we have it.”
