Posted on 10/18/2010 1:27:35 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A former Chairman of the National Commission on Culture, Professor George Hagan has called for a legislation to make it a criminal offence for people who infringe on the rights of innocent Ghanaians particularly old women and accuse them of witchcraft.
According to him, such people accused for possessing witchcraft are not only dragged out of the community, beaten up and disgraced, but often lose their lives.
Speaking at a conference on Witchcraft and Human Rights in Kumasi, Professor Hagan noted that, the criminalization of the issue would go a long way to stop the inhuman attitude that is on the ascendancy in communities in the three regions of the north and some areas in the south.
Maybe we should send Chris Coons there.

Summer Solstice Ritual at Cleopatra's Needle
Summer Solstice Celebration In Central Park with Stephen Popiotek and Maryanne Savino
Monday, June 21, 2010
The Summer Solstice is a time for celebration, joy, playfulness, creative power and fullness of life. It is also a time for purification and self-renewal, a day to see the creator in everyone you come in contact with and to recognize their divinity along with the recognition of your own God/Goddess self.
On June 21, 2010 at 7:28 am EDT, marks the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the longest day of the year, when the Sun is directly over the tropic of Cancer at noon. "Solstice" is a Latin word meaning-"sun stands still"
It will be held at Cleopatra's Needle, a potent vortex in the form of an obelisk that is from the Egyptian City of The Sun and is 3.5 thousand years old. As such it is an appropriate antenna/transducer for anchoring the Rays of the Sun while it is at its highest point.
Maryanne will be invoking sacred light languages and other musical forms by way of vocal tones and crystal singing bowls. She will also offer a sacred dance transmission in honor of the Divine Mother.
Stephen will be leading a channeled Guided Meditation/Activation utilizing a multitude of Archetypal systems including Kabalistic and Egyptian Mysticism, incorporate the assistance of many Light beings from the Angelic and inner planetary to the Solar and Galactic realms.
Together they will harness and anchor the energies of the summer solstice for personal and planetary healing, empowerment & transformation.
"Please join us for this magical evening as we connect with the sacredness of life!"
Cost: $15-$25 sliding scale
Location: Cleopatra's needle (the obelisk in Central Park) enter in at 79th street@5th ave. (North entrance) on the same block as the Metropolitan Museum. Stay to the right as you walk behind the museum. About half way around, you will see an under path-tunnel on the left, walk through and make the first right and the Obelisk will be on the right side surrounded by a grove of trees
