dove tales

  freedom

       of  expression

Dove Tales is an organisation that works for peace, but the fomenting of war and conflict is not just about arms and their victims. All of us lose our human rights in conflict situations and one of our aims is to oppose state repression of freedom of expression in the name of the war on terror and public security 

 

A recent study by Anita Gohdes, assistant professor of international relations at the University of Zurich and Sabina Carey, professor of political science at the University of Mannheim, showed that the killing of even a single journalist can act as a warning of worsening human rights conditions to come in a country.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre   

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere   

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst   

Are full of passionate intensity.

                       William Butler Yeats,

                        The Second Coming

                              1919
