Item description for Green Parrots by Gino Strada & Howard Zinn...

Designed to look like toys, green parrots are small, winged cylinders roughly four inches long that flutter over lands devastated by war, but are, in fact, antipersonnel mines. This book introduces us to the endless destruction that the green parrots have spread throughout the world, and in so doing raises an urgent question: Is it legitimate to accept war as an inevitable prospect for current and future generations? After appearing in numerous languages since its initial publication in 1999, this English edition is particularly timely. The appendix of Green Parrots contains the complete text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, approved on December 10, 1948 by the General Assembly of the United Nations, which begins by proclaiming: "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights." No matter who triggers a war, the end result will be a catastrophe for civilians who bear no responsibility for it. --Dr. Gino Strada Essay by Gino Strada.

Reviews - What do customers think about Green Parrots?

Beautiful Humanity Realized  Apr 8, 2005
"Green Parrots: A War Surgeon's Diary" is a remarkable book with frank reality coming from a true humanitiarian.

Dr. Gino Strada has been been helping victims of war, 90% civilians, for over seventeen years. His experience has brought him to Afghanistan, Iraq, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Pakistan, Sudan, Cambodia and other countries affected by war. Dr. Strada cuts through the clutter revealing what truely matters.

Government A fights government B with a devastating price being paid by C, Civilians. More than talk or protest, these civilians need real help immediately.

Dr. Strada and his organization EMERGENCY has been offering that help for over ten years but it is still just a drop in the bucket.

Green Parrots is an anaesthetic-free-root-canal into humanity's irrational cruelty and violence and simultaneously and more importantly, it is about profound empathy and the real love countless 'Gods' of this world continuously attempt to take credit for. Green Parrots is about sovereign human conscience driving sovereign human action, collectively of course!"

This book is be required reading. I DECLARE IT! Read it and share it.

And check out [...]
