Moving on to War not Peace
It's now over a week since the publication of Sabina Coyne Higgins' letter to the Irish Times saying that the war between Russia and Ukraine will continue until the leaders of both countries are persuaded to agree a ceasefire and enter negotiations.
Ms Coyne Higgins said that concerned people anxious to live together in peace and sustainability must demand that the war be brought to an end so that lives are saved, there is a lessening of the suffering, and the reconstruction of lives and livelihoods can begin. She has been subjected to unreasonable criticism simply because she called for a negotiated ceasefire. And despite some commentary and reaction, she did not suggest that the Russian invasion was justified in any shape or form.
