Luta por paz

Odd concept, but I recall reading about it in the Independent a few weeks ago and it's now come through my daily update from Urban Junkies. It's a charity which offers deprived people in Rio sporting and work opportunities.

Now it has come to London, just around the corner from my flat. There's a white-collar boxing competition this evening at York Hall, with the proceeds going to charity.

But I'll be going to capoeira - where the fighting doesn't result in a blow being landed.

I'm sure I've heard about fighting for peace in another context too. Now where was it? Ah yes... Iraq...
