The site’s title, Fighting for Hope, has been taken from the book of the same name by my main inspiration, Petra Kelly.

My blogs will cover various topics and, I hope, follow the philosophy of this statement by Petra Kelly:

“We have to understand that we are part of nature, not outside of it. What we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves.”

Professor Glenn D. Paige, the founder of the Centre for Global Nonkilling, has said this about Petra Kelly:

“Petra Kelly deserves to be seen… with Tolstoy, Gandhi and King as a pre-eminent contributor to non-violent global change in the twentieth century.”

Readers who would like to know more about Petra Kelly, may like to visit her Wikipedia entry and/or the Petra Kelly Archives (Heinrich Böll Foundation).
