SIGNIS ASIA ASSEMBLY 2010 was held in Surabaya, Indonesia, from September 20-24. The theme this year was: “CULTIVATE PEACE, PROTECT CREATION; MEDIA’S ROLE”. The key-note speech was delivered by Tony & Beth De Castro, Earthworm Sanctuary, in Philippines. They spoke of the negative impacts of chemical fertilizers and pesticides on nature, and of the necessity to go on organic farming for healthy life. Organic farming also brings healing and harmony with nature, and raises human spirituality. The next speaker was Mr. Errol Jonathans, Suara Surabaya Media (24H FM Radio). He stressed the importance of the Media’s role and that the Media should deal more with food, water, environment, diasters such as floods, earthquakes, etc. to change the life-style of the people. The SIGNIS ASIA’s belief is: “No food and no justice, no peace.”
