So I'm here with Emmanuel Jal, hiphop star, peace activist. >> Yeah. >> So tell us about your projects and how you're trying to bring peace to the world. >> Well what I do is I try to contribute by using music. So I use music to put spotlight on the issues that need to be brought into the public attention. So I use my story for social and emotional learning, because I come from a country that has been torn by the war, and the effect of the wars has affected me as a person. And my family members and so I campaign for peace, justice, equality and freedom for all. And the definition is I always say peace is justice, equality and freedom for all. And peace is when my belly is full. Peace is when conflicts are managed in a mature manner. That the violence can be prevented. >> So tell us how we can we help your project. And tell us a little bit the project that you're working on. There's a lot of organizations around the world that are trying to promote peace. How can we collaborate with those? >> Well the peace movement I'm creating is all about people becoming peace soldiers, like yourself, you're a peace soldier. A peace soldier is any person who uses their platform, their skills, their innovation, their entrepreneurial skills. Or whatever thing that they have to try to make planet Earth better. Try to impact humanity better. Try to impact the animal. Just having something with a skill. because everybody has got something that they can do. And so, and if you use that for doing good, then you're a peace soldier. One of the ways I'm using my experiences and bringing it to the world is to indicate people of what I've experienced. Because I believe human beings can empathize. And when human beings empathize, there's a great positive energy that can be created to stop evil. So first time I witnessed war, I thought the world was ending so war coming into my home. And what war is done is, it destroyed everything that is ours. So we have a whole generation that have been born in the refugee camps. The war has my family. All my aunties died in the war, including my mom. All my uncles except two that I know that are alive. 2.5 million people died in South Sudan, and the whole world just turned a blind eye on it. In the process, I became a child soldier. This is what I'm trying, using my past for social emotional learning to inspire people. A child place is not [INAUDIBLE]. A child place is suppose to be in school. And it's easy, wars can be reduced through education. So when we create a platform where we learn from one another and educate each other we are connect. And this is what ignorance or lack of information, proper information to the people is what cause many conflicts and that lack of people communicating. So when I was trained as a child soldier, I hated Muslims. I wanted to kill as many Muslims as possible and Arabs. But when I got educated now to go to school a British aid worker, McCune, rescued me, smuggled me to Kenya, my perspective changed. Because I've got access to information, to learn more truth and I realized it's not the Muslims and Arabs who are killing us. It's greed. I realized it's the resources, it's the land and I have come to understand like human beings will extend the empathy to people of same faith as them, same color and go rob a weaker team that is not organized with those ideas. And take their resources to make themselves look good, to give themselves a better opportunity, better food, or advance themself. So, it's almost like the jungle life, a survival for the fittest. So, what is happening now, the problem is we're human beings. We can reason, we can talk, we can empathize, we can share. So, this is what is making us different with animals. And so people like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Gandhi. People like William Willberford, learning about all those great people who did stuff and bringing their ideas to knowledge. To understand we are all equal, we are all God people, we bleed, we eat, we cry, we are the same. And, those things help me in my healing process to be able to push, and try to do this message of piece. >> Well thank for sharing your message. And we can't have peace until the basic human needs of all people are met. >> Yeah peace is when my belly is full. If you and me cannot eat, we have an internal conflict. You see, an empty belly does not understand no. Me and you are hungry now, we will not know law exists. >> wewantpeace.org, right? >> wewantpeace.org >> All right, thanks man. >> Awesome. Awesome. >> Keep up the great work. >> Yeah. Awesome, bro.
