Declaration of the Mussalaha Delegation to Syria on the Refugee Situation in Lebanon
Antonio C. S. Rosa, editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 May 2013

Since the cause of this crisis is the widespread violence in Syria, we call for an immediate end of all aid – lethal and nonlethal – to all combatants, an immediate and mutual ceasefire, and immediate negotiations among all the parties without preconditions. Lebanese citizens, Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon, Lebanese charitable institutions and other Lebanese civil society institutions deserve much credit for providing support that the international society has not done. However, a refugee influx of this magnitude is more than any society the size of Lebanon can accommodate without aid from the UN.

The Concluding Declaration of the Mussalaha Peace Delegation to Syria
Antonio C. S. Rosa, editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 May 2013

Mussalaha Peace Mission to Syria – May 1- 11, 2013. We consider it beyond debate that the Syrian people have the right to determine their own government and their own future. Foreign interference is currently preventing the Syrian people from exercising their right to self-determination. We are concerned that such pernicious intervention is tearing apart the fabric of the country itself, with long-term consequences that can only be imagined. The cautionary example of Iraq serves to remind us of the dire consequences of such international folly.

Spirituality and Virtue as Corollaries to Peace
Antonio C. S. Rosa | Editor - TRANSCEND Media Service, 18 Mar 2013

We are meant by nature, the universe, life itself (let’s leave the gods out of this) to be superior beings, elevated in virtue, goodness, righteousness, integrity, ethics, honesty, morality, uprightness, evolved consciousness, and not merely to get richer, smarter, sexier, more cunning, and more knowledgeable to dominate everything and everybody we contemplate-if possible by force. This is the real danger, the aspect that could prompt these smarter, more aggressive (meaning less civilized) people in power to explode the planet through a nuclear war, thus creating a second asteroid belt.

TRANSCEND International’s Statement Concerning the Label of Anti-Semitism against Johan Galtung
Antonio C. S. Rosa, editor – TRANSCEND, 7 May 2012

To criticize Israel’s current foreign policy is not anti-Semitic, but a part of democratic debate. Johan Galtung, like many others, is the proponent of a prosperous and peaceful Israel, in peace with all its neighbors. He has a concrete proposal, first time made public in 1971: A Middle East Community of Israel with its five Arab neighbors, modeled after the European Community of the Treaty of Rome, which went into effect in 1958. This very proposal was published by Akiva Eldar in Ha’aretz in 2007 under the title “Ingredients for a True Peace Process.”

(Portuguese) Pare Belo Monte: Não à Mega Usina na Amazônia
Antonio C. S. Rosa, TMS Editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 7 Feb 2011

O projeto de R$30 bilhões é tão economicamente arriscado que o governo precisou usar fundos de pensão e financiamento público para pagar a maior parte do investimento. Apesar de ser a terceira maior hidrelétrica do mundo, ela seria a menos produtiva, gerando apenas 10% da sua capacidade no período da seca, de julho a outubro.
