"In Beauty we are united! Through Beauty we pray! With Beauty we conquer!"
Not so long ago I went to visit Daniel Rey Piuma with a few friends in the hospital, not long after he had been to the inauguration of Tabaré Vázquez as the first socialist president of Uruguay in its history, March 1, 2005, at the same time a conclusion to his own personal and formal rehabilitation. Daniel previously was a spy into the military of this country from where he had collected evidence of torture and massacre by its membership taking which he fled the country and reported to the United Nations in the 1970s, and he supported the revolutionary Tupamaros into politics as chairman for northern Europe. In that capacity we presume his phone is constantly tapped. Since 2005, the Tupamaros are a represented majority in the Uruguayan parliament, as well as the senate and the government. They have also obtained the chairmanship of parliament and the senate. The presidency of the government was given to the socialist doctor Tabaré Vázquez. He has the support of the president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, also a centre-leftist. The president of Uruguay is both head of state and head of government.
After he returned home in the Netherlands, he was approached by an Italian judge who was endeavouring to still have living constituents tried of the former military of Uruguay during its totalitarian regime conceived in the 1960s and formalised in 1973, an example to the disreputable military junta of Argentina that seized political power by force in 1976, for their allegedly carrying responsibility of torture of Italian subjects who are also still alive, be it with a trauma. He was invited to appear as a witness in a court of justice to aid in this case.
He has done this, in Amsterdam, and so an initial position in the court having to defend himself against imputations of insult being forced to bring the issue concerned to the public eye from the start, was turned.
Having to closely revive although what really had happened, he had to be brought to the hospital with serious physical complaints which, according to a doctor, were related to post-traumatic stress.
For this reason we are, as visitors, requested to not mention anything that would remind him of the horrors that he ever had witnessed. He reported these to the United Nations after he had been rescued from Uruguay, together with his wife who had been imprisoned in a concentration camp there.
Because of the orders we had received to not mention anything traumatising, we spoke about art. Earlier we had already spoken about the symbolic dimensions of art and the meaning and possibilities of a Pax Cultura as proposed by the Roerich Pact, a treaty which was originally conceived in Uruguay and approved by the Seventh International Conference of American States, held at Montevideo on December 16, 1933. The treaty was signed on April 15, 1935 by 20 Latin American countries and the U.S.A., or all the members of the Pan-American Union, in the prelude to the second world war, precisely to avoid the kind of thing he had seen.
Later it was also signed by other countries, including India in 1948 and the Soviet Union in 1959. In fact the international Roerich Pact, initiated in 1954, was signed by more than 60 countries and became international humanitarian law. The Pax Cultura was to be a cultural analog to the Red Cross for medical neutrality.
April 15, 2005 marked the 70th anniversary of (the signing of) the Roerich Pact, which was originally aiming to achieve peace through culture, cultural peace, or Pax Cultura, the motto of the Roerich Pact as well as the emblem on its flag, the Banner of Peace: "Where there is Peace, there is Culture; Where there is Culture, there is Peace."
In his new homeland Daniel became an art-director for the municipality Amsterdam.
He studied ever to become priest but became atheist instead, presumably from his encounters with the Junta. Yet I dared mention a healing-well in Tlacote, Mexico, if medicine or if treatment would prove to be insufficient.
This well is said to have been charged with healing properties by Maitreya. Cases have been reported here even of the cure of Aids, but I can not verify these personally. I am also not a spokesman of Maitreya and have no particular religious affiliation. Maitreya is taken by many to be synonymous to Christ.
We are freethinkers but fear at least no further persecution by Nero.
Agreed to provoke nothing traumatic, indeed in anyone, we have mainly spoken concerning art and have shared some pictures as a form of innocence that may help to heal us without the implication of an ideology.
These pictures were not intended to be used in court but given in accord with a notion of Tupamaros in what really means harmlessness, as it happens: faith in our own creative source.
Uruguay has meanwhile become one of the most environmentally aware nations in the world and has recognised people in line with their surroundings to deserve the same respect and healing.
We do our best.
Such as Nicholas Roerich said: "In Beauty we are united! Through Beauty we pray! With Beauty we conquer!"
