Interview with Glenn Paige and Joam Evans Pim of the Center for Global Nonkilling, and Maorong Jiang, Director of the Asian World Center at Creighton University

Tomorrow is the 60th anniversary of the armistice that suspended combat in the Korean War.   An official peace treaty has never been signed, in fact, this past March, for the third time, North Korea declared the armistice invalid.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on possibilities for peace being generated here in Hawai’i.

In addition, professor Glenn Paige writes: 

A local link to nonkilling from a multifaith perspective could be to Mary

Adamski: Thou shall not kill, in the print and digital editions of the Hawaii Catholic Journal.

(http://www.hawaiicatholicjournal.com/2013/07/19/mary-adamski). A pioneering Hawaii first in the faith community.

To introduce serious efforts to develop nonlethal weapons link could be made to the DOD Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program. (http://jnlwp.defense.gov).
