Bishop Tutu chaired South Africa’s post-apartheid Truth and Reconciliation Commission.  He is a tireless defender of human rights and has campaigned for the oppressed and marginalized worldwide. In 1984, he became the second South African to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has asked the Dalai Lama to hold a public dialogue with him via video link-up on Saturday.

Dumisa Ntsebeza, the CEO of the Desmond Tutu Peace Centre, said Tutu had written to the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader and was waiting for a response.

“We’re not trying to ban bad influences, we’re saying its not right to profit from addiction. And if you do profit from it, indirectly or directly, you are enabling it. And if you are enabling addiction, you are accountable financially. The unintended/intended consequence of supplying addictive products & services is addiction. And if you are part of enabling addiction, you are morally responsible for addressing the harm you cause.” — Warren Whitfield
