        Passing on this message...

        Please can you circulate this email to your contacts to encourage
        them and others to attend the upcoming US screenings of this
        extraordinary film about Ethiopian coffee called Black Gold. It is
        crucial that as many people see this film as possible. Details below. The film opens in
        New York and Seattle this weekend and is then being shown around the
        US - a full list of screenings can be found here

        Now I'm officially off.

          Dear Fikirte,

          I am writing, (off topic to your post, forgive me) for submissions to the 5th and future editions of the International Carnival of Pozitivities (ICP) ( I call upon you to share your blog entries about HIV/AIDS and how it has affected you, your family, friends or caregivers around the world. I will be accepting submissions through midnight, 2 November 2006 for this edition.

          I found your post about stigma and mandatory testing. I would like to encourage you to participate in the Carnival as stigma about the illness continues to be an issue worldwide. Through sharing our genuine, true and honest voices with others, we can help chip away at the silence, myth and misinformation about the illness that permeates society. The more personal your stories and the more genuine you can be, the more powerful the message will be.

          I hope that you will take the time right now to submit an entry for the November edition. If you choose to wait, please make a note on your calendar to submit by midnight, 2 November 2006.


          Ron Hudson, Founder of the ICP

        The face of VAW

        Kamilat - victim of acid burning The face of VAW - violence against women. It should and can be stopped with enough commitment. Helping one woman at a time is a start.
