The Virtual Rock Opera

The Virtual Rock Opera
The Virtual Operas is the initiative of Foundation VRO of the Netherlands with the intent of creating 1, 10 or 100 Opera's via Internet with an active participation by persons of the world, united creatively via the world-wide web. Simply, everyone who has access to the internet can assist in composing the operas, defining the true essence of the term "Virtual" as A United Nation. The Foundation's plans have not been consciously selected to promote any one city, country or continent but are focused on promoting the world as a whole, as one "United Nation". The plan focuses on ‘Global Issues’ using projects such as ‘Global Peace’, ‘Global Water’, ‘Global Democracy' and ‘Global Health’ and there will be subsequent projects, such as ‘United Environment’ (2006) and ‘United Through Globalization?’ (2008) and other global issues (2010 and after).
Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland
Dutch Refugee Council

Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland
All over the world, large groups of people flee their homelands for fear of persecution. They are discriminated against, threatened, tortured and fear imprisonment. Their lives are at risk. Every year, a small number of them come to the Netherlands. The Dutch Refugee Council works hard to protect this small but vulnerable group. The Netherlands has known peace for more than half a century. Our democratic system is our guarantee that we will not be persecuted, discriminated against or subjected to arbitrary rule. We are free to live our lives the way we see fit. This is so obvious that we hardly even think about it any more.

VOODOO

Vodoun logo
Contrary to popular belief, the Africans enslaved to build the economic foundation of America were not Christians. During slavery, African-Americans were not even allowed to worship as Christians. The builders of this great nation were practitioners of the various African Religions popularly known today as "Voodoo", (Vodoun) Akan, Ifa, Orisha, La Reglas de Congo, and Mami Wata . A small percentage were even (African-styled) Muslims, incorporating ancestral veneration and family deities into their ritual practice. These spiritual practices of the Africans enslaved in America, have their ancestral origins not from Haiti, Cuba, or the Americas, but directly from Dahomey (Ewe [ev-way]), Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana, the Congo, and other West African nations. The Spirits remained in their blood just as they did wherever the African was taken and enslaved in the New World. The West Africans also arrived in America speaking their native mother tongues, and were forbidden to learn English, or to read, including the Euro-Christian Bible. The Christian missionaries, (of whom the majority supported slavery), were not interested in actually teaching the tenets of Christianity to the enslaved Africans, but rather their primary focus was on civilizing them from their "idolatrous" ways, and making them compliant with their lamentable fate of chattel slavery.
