    At the end of the year 2006/2007 we commemorated, in the name of all people who are being tortured and maltreated, a Russian journalist who was killed for her courage to reveal a different reality.
    Anna Politkovskaya was our Person of the Year 2006. She was murdered in Moscow on 7 October 2006 in Moskau ermordet. The image shows courageous people at a commemoration demo in Moscow on 17 December 2006.

    Freedom of word is one of the most improtant achievements of modern time. Unfortunately this Human Right is being disrespected in many countries.

    The balance between human activity and the environment. Factual information, politically neutral and independent.

    This somber race cannot be helped; one only had to become mostly silent, in order to avoid being taken for mad, [like Cassandra], when one predicted what was already standing before the entrance. - Goethe
