Monmouth University: "A Green Campus"

6 HOURS AGO  |  RYAN THOMPSON || CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Monmouth University:

Any time you receive an email from a faculty member on campus, you will see on their signature right below the Monmouth University logo, a green leaf. Next to the leaf, it reads, “We are a green campus. Think before you print.”

It’s blasphemous that this “green campus” does not practice what it preaches.

In my junior year at Monmouth, one thing has never changed: our lack of recycling. Sure, you see...

Elton John Says Farewell to Philly

Last ‘Saturday Night’ was ‘Alright for Fighting’ because Elton John brought his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour to Philadelphia on Nov. 9. This was the second time John brought his farewell tour to Philadelphia (he had two consecutive sold out shows on Sept. 11 and 12, 2018) and it attracted back-to-back sellout crowds.

This tour was John’s most technically ambitious one yet. The stage featured a h...

Jojo Rabbit Doesn't Have Enough Hop

At some point in our lives, we had imaginary friends. When times got rough where you couldn’t have that happy meal for dinner or weren’t allowed to go over Kevin’s because your room still needed to be spruced up, your imaginary friend was always there. Yeah, you looked crazy talking to a wall in your room by yourself, but they would always listen.

For Jojo, a 10-year-old boy growing up in Nazi Germ...

The farmers need a living and coco plants provide it. Yes it's illegal; however, put that aside and look at what the country is lacking: the means to live a better life. Watching this documentary, I got a look at the conditions of peasantry lifestyles and how farmers want to do something different but it's the life they're forced into because of the lack of economic stability in Columbia.

Alavaro Bulletros, a farming community leader, said about the parliamentarians, "It's incredible to see a soldier putting the barrel of her rifle inside a women's mouth telling her to "'start talking, to the guerilla snitch'" because they allege she's refusing to tell the whereabouts of the guerilla".

That's just one perspective on it. Then you have the parliamentarians who claim they want people to be safe and keep everyone working but under the restraint of doing something legal, for example mining, which is an alternative to the harvesting of the cocoa plant. But there are some severe drawbacks to "helping". While they are eliminating the areas where the coco crop has been emptied, they have damaged water and other natural resources pertinent to survival.

It concerns me that the only mention of the U.S. in this documentary should cast such a dark shade of grey. While Al Gore did give a promising address towards Columbia in the statement, "Counter-Narcotic Projects sustainable economic development, the protection of human rights humanitarian and stimulatory private investment and promoting Columbian economic growth."

It seems like the ball was dropped when Bush came into the presidency I can't tell whether we're the good or bad guys, which struck a disappointed nerve for me

It's not just a documentary saying that the U.S. has been less than cooperative in aiding Columbia's economic issue. An article published in Huffington Post: Colombia Peace and Drugs states: "The United States government, which has done so much to fuel the war, can do much to support peace".

Reaffirming the documentary's plea about the harmful tactics of the Parliamentarians of Columbian land, the Huffington Post says, "The United States Government should embrace the voluntary community-based vision for drug policy, without aerial spraying land in the drug policy chapter, and should fully transform its assistance from war to peace."

According to the Huffington Post, "Over 81 percent of whom were civilians—untold numbers have suffered violence, and nearly 6 million have been internally displaced. This peace process represents the best hope for a negotiated settlement in a generation."
