Today in Dhaka the city was under curfew, no gatherings allowed and noone was allowed onto the streets or they were questioned by the military, and there have also been many arrests recently. I wonder; what does peace mean in this context? Accepting the status quoo or pushing for change? For one, peace requires dialogue. And if the part5ies are past dialogue? Two, peace requires other methods of resolution to problems. And if people are not willing to change from their established ways? How can beace be assured in this context?
