a Global Movement of Nonviolence
    is here!

    Two global initiatives can
    lead to change the world:


    Both are led by women.

    The next step recommended is to promote a
    Global Movement of Nonviolence (GMofNV)
    with women leading the way promoting stopping
    the violence for everyone (men are included)!

    The key to implementing a GMofNV is women leaders
    coming to the forefront to take a political voice.

    After the killing of 20 children and six teachers in
    Newtown, Connecticut, Nobel Peace Laureate,
    LEYMAH GBOWEE wrote an article called, Rise Up,
    Mothers. It’s Time to End Gun Violence.  She wrote,
    “…I believe that now more than ever is the time for
    mothers to resist the culture of violence.”  

    A team of non-governmental women leaders is being
    organized to present a GMofNV to Michelle Bachelet,
    the Executive Director of UN WOMEN.  Ms. Bachelet
    spoke out profoundly for nonviolence in 2009, while
    she was President of Chile.

    Ms. Bachelet can facilitate a meeting of women leaders
    from around the world, ultimately to empower women
    around the world.  ALICE WALKER, author and
    activist, has been outspoken for peace and justice and
    therefore is being courted to join.  Ms. Gbowee and
    Ms. Walker can help to enlist other women leaders and
    lead a GMofNV, if they choose to.

    To implement a GMofNV, women leaders would
    announce an initiative called a:

    CALL to WOMEN, a World-Wide Unity Campaign

    A Call to Women is designed to "CAPTURE and KEEP"
    the ATTENTION of the MEDIA and the world.

    Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, when told of
    the presentation of a GMofNV, led by women, to Michelle Bachelet,
    said, "It's about time."

    A Call to Women is not just about women.  Men are included.  This is
    a test for women and men.  Men should be courting women to prevent
    war and violence, if they truly believe they don’t want war.   

    I have a full plan designed with administrative, marketing, funding,
    philanthropy, implementation, and follow-up plans.

    WOMEN have the opportunity to lead a GMofNV simply by "taking"
    the lead.  Men will agree with the concept.  A GMofNV is for everyone!

    The movement will attain POLITICAL CLOUT because of the size
    and the demands for preventing and stopping war (See World March
    Goals and GMofNV Demands.  The short term effort is to diffuse conflict
    and the long term efforts are to change military spending to humanitarian

    Once a GMofNV is started, it will take on a life of its own!  
    New leaders will come to the forefront.  A GMofNV will
    encompass all the movements -- Occupy, the Arab
    Spring, the Environmental movement, the spiritual and
    the religious.  

    The reaction of the people of the world to the shooting of Malala
    in Pakistan, is proof that the people want nonviolence.  The reaction
    of the NRA after the killings in Newtown, is proof that something
    different is needed, such a movement of nonviolence,  to change the
    culture.  The rape of the woman on the bus in India, is proof that a
    "Global" Movement of Nonviolence is needed so everyone sees
    what is happening and will not feel their culture is being singled out.

    The mechanisms are in place and the plan is ready!
    The intricacies are complex, but there is simplicity in
    setting it in motion.  The key is to GET it STARTED!

    GBOWEE or any and all women leaders and tell them to contact Andre

    The opportunity is at our FINGERTIPS to change the world,
    if we choose to.

    Please contact us and thoroughly investigate the plan.  

    Peace and Love,
    Andre Sheldon
