Peace and Conflict in Diversity
StoryThumbnail

On Thursday, March 21 Rotary Club Curacao organizes a fundraising lunch at Sunscape Resort & Casino

where Dr. Stephen Small, will hold a lecture with the topic "Peace and Conflict in Diversity". The aim of the lunch is to raise funds for the project "Pas den Kas’', an initiative to provide the community with basic tools for conflict resolution. Dr. Small is a professor at the University of California. Since 2010 he is also an extraordinary professor at the University of Amsterdam, charged with the study of Dutch slavery and its legacy. He will be discussing the causes, manifestations, consequences and ways to resolve conflicts between individuals, groups and the general community. He will also touch upon the influence of diversity, inequality and history on conflicts in a multicultural society like ours.

Drs. Chris Palm, expert in mediation, will expand on the project for the community. The lectures are in English; tickets cost ANG 175, and are available from members of the Rotary Club Curacao and from Thursday to Mensing's Caminada.

Independence days

RUDY Dovale: July seems to be the “independence month” of the year, Rudy said in his “4th of July speech”. Canada starts with the 1st of July; Curacao with its Dia di Bandera the 2nd, July 4th the USA, July 5th Venezuela, July 9th Argentina , July 16 Liberia, July 20th Colombia, July 26th the Netherlands, Jluy 28th Peru, and France is famous for its “quatorze juillet” but looking at the list of declarations of Independence there are many more in also many different month's. Rudy commented that the independence from the UK started with the thirteen colonies declaring their independence; they put the task of drawing up a Declaration of Independence in the hands of a five man committee. Rudy had brought with him a copy of the original declaration which was circulated among the members and guests.

Personally I would like to add (Ton vd S.) that the ideas in that declaration follow quite closely the basic ideas of liberal democracy  in the Act of Abjuration ( Plakkaat van Verlaetinghe), signed on 26 July 1581 (also July !) , which was the formal declaration of independence of the Dutch Low Countries from the Spanish king, Philip II . The same ideas are also found in the Déclaration des droits de l'homme ET du citoyen, fundamental document of the French révolution.

(The new independence of USA was first recognized by the canons on the fort of St Eustatius[i])

Papi Yessurun spoke at length about Venezuela and its significance and affiliation to Curacao that is bound by history. He indicated that Simon Bolívar lived in Curacao during his depression when he was no longer in favor in Venezuela. His two sisters were at that time living in Curacao at the “Octagon” which now forms part of the Avila Hotel.

Students supported by Rotary Club Curaçao and personal by some members

Student program. Daisy explained that the year went so fast, it seems like a short time ago when the students were sitting (a year ago) at our lunch meeting. She was happy to announce that all passed their year (applause). Wim Odems sponsored one of the best atletes and several other Rotarians sponsored students to go to music lessons, tennis lessons, and many other. Then the students took the mike and in surprisingly good English one of them told us that because of Rotary she was closer in following her dream to go to Harvard medical school to develop a cure for cancer. Others told us how grateful they were and that they will do everything to make us proud and one of them did already by being second best in her class. Rudy asked Daisy if we can have a report on the progress of the students every 2-3 months so we can keep track of our investment and our future. Although Sigmund was happy with the results he regretted that males were underrepresented. Vinod explained the board wants to expand the program to have more than current 8 students.

Integrated eBulletin for Easier Communication

Since the weekly Bulletin is one of the well organized assets of our Rotary Club, we will not use this feature in the nearby future.

Although ClubRunner makes it easy to publish our weekly Club (e-)Bulletin, and send this to all members and friends of the club, and by incorporating home page stories and events with the push of a button it would be an easy thing to publish.
