ENVISION THIS: Global opposition to war, violence, oppression, and falsehood is connected to building a dream, the creation of a “Realistic Utopia” at Tamera
Our guests are Leila Dregger and Martin Winieiki of Tamera, whose goal is to become an acupuncture point of peace, a greenhouse of trust, a prototype for an existence free of fear on this planet, a post-capitalist societal model and a place where the human and meta realm of life come together.
Leila Dregger, is a freelance journalist writing on ecological, political, social and women’s issues. In her book, Tamera, she asks, “How could a world look like where all people have enough to eat, where rivers may meander again, where energy is abundantly available, where children can trust their parents and lovers can deeply rely on each other, where conflicts do not lead to violence, but are solved with intelligence and compassion??”? She also answers with a description of Tamera as A Model for the Future. In her article, Forty Years After the Carnation Revolution, she addresses the larger question, “Can Portugal become a model for a new socialism?”
Martin Winiecki, is Coordinator of the Terra Nova School and of the Political Department at Tamera. He is a spokesman for the Institute for Global Peace Work which is working to weave an international peace network to establish a global force for peace. Representatives of indigenous peoples, scientists, peace initiatives and individual peace activists from all over the world take part in it on the base of the “Plan of Peace Research Villages and Healing Biotopes”. The main aim of the IGP is to develop a global cooperation for the building up peace research villages in order to create alternatives for the global system of violence.?
