More on the Geneva Conventions

If your interest was peaked last week with the article about the Geneva Conventions, head over to Alertnet, as they've got the Conventions in "Focus" on the homepage. In the MediaWatch page, there is a link to a Filipino article, which includes the following on the Red Cross as custodians of the Geneva Conventions:

"The Red Cross represents light in the darkness of war, and the ICRC and PNRC have been actively involved in ensuring the welfare of thousands of civilians caught in Mindanao’s conflict... Beyond August 12, it’s a good time to remember the unsung heroes of war and disaster—if we could only break away, briefly, from the lure of destructive politics."
