Dear Gershon, after this great achievement, how about a smaller challenge, though important?

As I noticed on your page this "MAKOMOT – The Israeli Center for Environment Mediation", I thought you might like to explore the political opportunity of the  World Social Forum to take place on January 24-29.

It will  be thematic on Social and Environmental Justice. I think ME Peace might help organize an Israeli-Palestinian presence to bring problems such as water etc.

 If you´d like to start studying about the Forum, I and my friends in Brazil can help you on that.

Event : 2012 Thematic Social Forum: capitalist crisis, Social and Environmental Justice – Porto Alegre and Metropololitan Area 
Location: Porto Alegre, RS (Brazil)
Date: january 24-29

Event: Thematic World Education Forum – Social and Environmental Justice
Location: Gravataí, RS (Brazil)
Date: january 24-29

MEPEACE honors Dr. Gershon Baskin, peacemaker and board member of MEPEACE, for helping achieve the breakthrough between the Hamas and Israel. Gershon's efforts resulted in the release of Palestinian prisoners and the return of Gilad Shalit today.

In addition to representing "Middle East Peace", MEPEACE combines the words "ME" and "PEACE". Middle East peace starts with each of us! As the founder of IPCRI, as a peacemaker and as a person, Gershon Baskin represents the commitment and courage we strive for in realizing peace:

Hi Gershon,

Your speech on peace education tonight was really inspiring. I picked up IPCRI's info at the JStreet Conference in DC, but it was great to hear your views and goals. Thanks for coming to Denver!

Shalom Gershon. Please give my warm regards to Danny. If he has time (and interest), I'd like to get in touch with him. Maybe I can drop by to see both of you next time I'm in Israel.
