[WSF-Discuss] Fwd: WSF 2015 march- new statement

Dear Gacheke,
my thoughts on the new slogan: It is approprate and informative enough. It 
i good that the word 'peace' is spelled out. Generally, it is 
better to be 'for' than 'against'.
State terrorim is a reality, yes, but a reality that is difficult to 
crystallize in a slogan. The concept will easily be misinterpreted, or 
misunderstood. What does it mean to be "against state terrorim?"
I would rather say: "for nuclear disarmament". (nuclear 'deterrence' is a 
important example  of state terror, isn't it?)
Best,
Mikael
