API (Avalon Publishing)
founded by Anne Marie Wyse-Murray
- (est. 1974) holds copyright/intellectual/property/essays/books/compositions with an emphasis on the cultural and its power to
build bridges to the Human Rights Division which was
established in 1974. It is a private, non-profit company. It has
no financial residuals or shares and the operating costs are met
by the teaching fees of the owner.
The Human Rights Division
The Human Rights Division has functioned as an NGO in tandem
with other NGOs, or on its own to help extreme desparate cases.
Normally this work has not been domestic, that is, within Canada
but rather with certain countries with state-approved, severe
human rights violations that contravene the United Nations'
Human Rights' legislation, re: cruel and unusual punishment.
API has much less impendimenta - much less bureaucracy than
other NGOs - and therefore has had more flexibility and
maneuverability to focus on particularly hopeless cases. API
continually strives internationally to buil bridges between the
cultural and political worlds. Avalon Publishing has
demonstrated abilities internationally to use art, as a power, to
help the victim of Human Rights violations by building bridges
between Church and State, and in cases where both fail, a
Monarchy that transcends the State, as in one of the sample cases,
and Banks and Corporations. Art, as food for the soul,
nourishment for existence if you will, has connected with these
powers in positive results for humanitarian gains.
Special acknowledgement is made towards a bank
director. During his lifetime between 1975-1982, the Bank Director provided mentorship to API, giving his advice and especially his strong encouragement
towards the compassionate efforts of API which he strongly believed were something of great value to the world in building cultural bridges
When approaching the Roman Catholic clergy for help in certain cases resolving delicate issues, where they had Human Rights advocacy or missionary experience, they were immediately efficient and helpful with no loss of time. The contrary was true of both hierarchy and the clergy if they did not have this empathy and experience.
