We recently invited our SMS subscribers to send us their thoughts on how they can, and will make a difference in 2008.
Here are just a few of their replies:
Lets go out and vote out the regime.
Lets copy South Africa. Say no to dictators!
Facilitate on issues of peace, conflict, governance and human rights. Inform more friends about how to get SW Radio News. Distribute hand-powered radios if they are made available to remote areas. Participate in training elections monitors, etc.
In 2008 I have to speak up against bad governance and share my views with others.
What are do you think? Is voting still a viable option? Are we so naÃ¯ve we think these elections will be any different than the past three? Or can we think more creatively and develop strategies that demonstrate the power of people over politicians?
What are you going to do to make a difference in 2008?
