ANEC Underscores Media's Role in Promoting Peace and Nonviolence

Dharamshala -- Dharamsala-based Active
Nonviolence Education Center (ANEC) has called
for objective and unbiased reporting by the media
to spread the message peace and reconciliation.

ANEC, a NGO established in September 2007, aims
to establish a firmly-rooted global culture of
nonviolence through series of workshops and
training. It also educates the Tibetan people to
deal with situations in a nonviolent manner.

The journalists should use constructive and
objective reporting strategies as opposed to
using the method of sensationalism and
distortion, Mr. Tenpa C Samkhar, executive
director told local Indian and Tibetan journalists here yesterday.

Addressing the press with Mr. Raheela Nanji,
member of ANEC, Mr Samkhar expressed deep concern
over growing violence and hatred despite
impressive advances made by humans in education, health and science.

The examples set by Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin
Luther King and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, have
shown the world that active, non-violent advocacy
is highly successful to bring global peace and
mitigate sufferings of the oppressed, Mr. Samkhar said.
