A short documentary showing the humanitarian conditions of people in the Acholi region of northern Uganda have faced 22 years of war and over 2 million holed up in concentration camps. Uganda is a good friend of USA and USA actually sponsors many projects in Uganda including funds for HIV, education and even the Uganda military. However, the US government does not want to talk about this war that has killed hundreds of thousand people and as many as 60,000 innocent children abducted and used as child soldiers by both the government and the LRA rebels.

Displaced and destitute. Recent fighting in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo has left a humanitarian crisis. Thousands have been helped already – families have been registered, children vaccinated against deadly diseases and cooking utensils, food and basic shelter have been provided; latrines and clean running water have kept illness down to a minimum. But the flood of humanity fleeing conflict has meant aid agencies and government authorities are not been able to keep up. Many walked for days to get to these safe camps outside Goma, shaping bush and branches into makeshift homes. 16 year old Pascaline was heavily pregnant when she and her family were forced to flee. She went into labour on the road, found shelter from the pouring rain and gave birth to a healthy girl. Seeing the new born baby and young mother, Josephine took pity on the family and opened her home to them. 17 people live here now. Josephine Ndalemwa, Head of host family: "I saw this family and the young mother and her tiny baby were completely soaked from the rain and I felt really sorry for them and took them in." The main victims of the renewed fighting are children. This young boy was shot leaving his home. Brought here by an NGO worker, his leg was saved. The main goal of UNICEF's partner Heal Africa is to help rape survivors. A mobile clinic is loaded up with medicines and heads out to volatile areas where women are most vulnerable. Young boys are particularly at risk. Once fighting was their thing, now it's football. At this transit centre for children recruited by armed forces, they get their playfulness back, caring for rabbits and being cared for themselves. Celestin too was shot and had just been brought in MONUC, the UN forces here. "Celestin", 13-year-old: Fears of re-recruitment mean these children won't be united until peace holds. Villages have emptied out in the fighting. For now MONUC and Congolese government forces are in control of the town of Sake. But ongoing insecurity threatens children most. Colonel Chand Saroha, Commanding Officer MONUC: "Nkunda's forces, Mayi mayi and FDLR also, we have seen children in all these three groups, all these commanders, they generally try to lure children to pick up arms." For now a tenuous peace is holding but the crisis in eastern DR Congo remains on the edge.

About Maharaji's Message
Maharaji's message is simple and profound. Speaking at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok, Thailand, he said, "Peace needs to be in everyone's life. Of all the things we have tried in this world, there is one thing we have never given a chance. That one thing is peace. If we want to hope for something, maybe we could hope in our heart that peace will come in our life. The peace we are looking for is within. It is in the heart, waiting to be felt, and I can help you get in touch with it. It is not the world that needs peace; it is people. When people in the world are at peace within, the world will be at peace."
For those who wish to make peace a reality in their life, he offers inspiration and guidance. "What I offer people is not just talk," he says, "but a way to go inside and savor the peace that is within."
"What I offer is more than words. I offer the know-how to access the experience of peace and fulfillment within. I call it Knowledge.
To guide people through the preparation process, Maharaji has produced videos called "The Keys."
There are six Keys. Each one of them is a key point in the preparation.

The humanitarian crisis continues in Gaza -
# Amnesty slams Israel 'war crimes' Most Palestinian casualties are unjustifiable, Amnesty says Amnesty International has accused Israel of committing war crimes in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. The rights group's report for 2004 says Israeli forces have killed some 700 Palestinians - including 150 children - mostly in unlawful circumstances. The report lists "reckless shooting, shelling and air strikes in civilian areas... and excessive use of force". It also condemns the killing of Israeli civilians by Palestinian militants and violence by Jewish settlers. "Certain abuses committed by the Israeli army constituted crimes against humanity and war crimes," Amnesty's report says. "The deliberate targeting of civilians by Palestinian armed groups constituted crimes against humanity," it adds. An Israeli opposition MP has requested an urgent parliamentary debate on the report. But an Israeli foreign ministry spokesman denied the charge of war crimes and said Amnesty's analysis appeared "one-sided". The report says Palestinian armed groups killed 109 Israelis, including 59 civilians and eight children, in suicide bombings, shootings and mortar attacks. 'Impunity' Amnesty's accusations against the Israeli army include unlawful killings, torture, extensive and wanton destruction of property, obstruction of medical assistance and targeting of medical personnel.

The report accuses Israel of offering impunity to soldiers and settlers who commit crimes against Palestinians. "In the overwhelming majority of the thousands of cases of unlawful killings and other grave human rights violations in the previous four years, no investigations were known to have been carried out," the report says. "The Israeli army and police ... routinely increased restrictions on the local Palestinian population in response to attacks by Israeli settlers," it adds. Dire situation In addition to the report's focus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Amnesty criticises a number of regimes in neighbouring Arab countries. Palestinian suicide bombings are "crimes against humanity" Egypt and Syria are blamed for systematic torture and ill-treatment of political prisoners. In Saudi Arabia, Amnesty highlights killings by security forces and armed groups, exacerbating the "already dire human rights situation in the country". Jordan is said to have made scores of political arrests, amid reports of torture and ill-treatment in custody. In Iraq, the report says US-led forces committed gross human rights violations, including unlawful killings, arbitrary detention and torture. Armed groups in Iraq are similarly blamed for targeting civilians, hostage-taking and killing hostages.
