Nov 30th. NY: The World March for Peace & Nonviolence reaches America

93 DAYS AROUND THE WORLD TO STOP WARS AND VIOLENCE
The World March for Peace and Nonviolence comes to USA November 30

by Nicole Myers, www.worldmarchinnyc.org

(NEW YORK, November 20, 2009) — The World March for Peace and Nonviolence arrives in New York City on November 30. It is the first worldwide march and involves more than one million people. The marchers have taken their message of peace and nonviolence to some of the past and present zones of conflict: Hiroshima, the Korean Demilitarized zone, the border of Pakistan and India, Israel and Palestine, and the Balkan countries.

To mark the arrival, at 1 p.m. the international team of marchers will be welcomed at Brooklyn Borough Hall by New Yorkers representing more than 100 cultures, and including children and teachers, religious leaders, organizations, Consuls and city officials. They will march across the Brooklyn Bridge to City Hall where a press conference will be held at 3 p.m.

At 7 p.m. the official welcome of the international team of 25 marchers will be celebrated with a multimedia program of inspirational talks and cultural performances under the theme of “Beyond Violence” at Riverside Church (91 Claremont Street, NYC). The event is open to the public and free of charge.

At 12 noon, on December 1, at Ground Zero, the marchers will participate in a special ceremony to honor the 9/11 victims, decry the violence of the attacks and address the theme of reconciliation as it pertains to achieving peace and nonviolence. The event will be co-sponsored by World without Wars and without Violence, The Community for Human Development, and September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows.

Setting out from New Zealand on October 2nd – the International Day of Nonviolence – this historic 93-day march has already traveled for sixty days through fifty countries on four continents. They have met with presidents of Finland, Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina and have been blessed by Pope Benedict XVI. An international delegation of the World March participated at the 10th Nobel Peace Laureates Summit in Berlin, and the March was entrusted with disseminating their “Charter for a World Without Violence.”

Simultaneously, an unprecedented social mobilization has been taking place in support of the March, with forums, festivals, exhibits, concerts, sport events, and conferences held in more than 350 cities. The youth have been inspired, creating the largest peace sign in the Philippines with 12,000 children, a mile-long “Peace Wall” in Chile and the largest peace flag in Italy.

The March calls for the end of wars and the abolition of nuclear weapons. According to Chris Wells, the US spokesperson, “It aims to create a global consciousness, similar to what has already happened with climate change, that universally condemns all forms of violence.”

There is no shortage of prominent people and newsmakers who have endorsed the March including Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter and other Nobel Peace Prize winners, Noam Chomsky, eleven presidents, hundreds of world leaders, celebrities such as Yoko Ono, Penelope Cruz, Cate Blanchett, Martin Sheen and Viggo Mortensen. For a complete list of endorsers: (See www.theworldmarch.org/index.php?secc=adhesiones).

From New York, the marchers move on to Washington, DC, Montreal, Los Angeles and San Francisco. It continues to Mexico, with events planned on both sides of the US-Mexico border, as it heads south through Central and South America. The World March will complete its monumental journey in the heights of the Andes on January 2, at Punta de Vacas, Argentina after traveling 99,000 miles.

The March was initiated by “World Without Wars,” an international organization launched by the Humanist Movement that has been working for 15 years in the field of disarmament and nonviolence.

World March for Peace & Nonviolence

The World March for Peace & Nonviolence
NOVEMBER Update

by Dennis Redmond

Dear Friends,

The World March for Peace and Nonviolence continues its journey across the planet. When I last wrote, the March had just completed its Asian leg, and the marches through the Middle East and the Balkans were winding down as well. In the last few weeks the marchers have traveled throughout Europe and are now in northern Africa.  We are preparing to welcome them here in New York next week. Here are a few of November’s highlights:

Prague Falls for Marchers

In Prague, the marchers met with the vice-president of the Chamber of Deputies and other members of the Czech Parliament, and with Jan Tamas an other leaders of the successful effort to stop the development of the US “Stars Wars” missile base in the Czech Republic. On their final night, five thousand people, mostly youth, gathered in Wenceslas Square to participate in a “Peace Party” hosted by some of the country’s best-known singers, actors and entertainers as well as the NY’s Harlem Gospel Choir.

World March Meets Nobel Peace Laureates

In Berlin, the marchers were officially received by the 10th Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, and entrusted with disseminating the Summit’s “Charter for a World Without Violence” by laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire. Silo, the founder of Universalist Humanism and an inspiration for the World March, addressed the Summit with a talk on “The Meaning of Peace and Nonviolence in the Present Moment.” Referring to the World march, he said “For the first time in history an event of this magnitude has been put in motion by the participants themselves.”

Italians Welcome the World March by the Thousands

Thousands of people joined in marches and public demonstrationsin support of the World March in cities throughout Italy, including 2000 children in Milan’s Piazza Duomo and 1,600 people in Turin who came to the Teatro Regio to attend a performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony held in the March’s honor. In Novara, the marchers denounced the Italian government’s decision to purchase 131 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters, which can carry nuclear weapons and have a completely offensive purpose.

In the Vatican a delegation received a blessing from Pope Benedict XVI.

The March Crosses Spain

Five thousand Madrileños marched along the Paseo del Prado to the Puerta de Sol. Pau Segado, the March spokesperson for Spain, called on President Zapatero to withdraw Spanish troops from Afghanistan, and denounced the government’s “double game” of promulgating peace while selling weapons internationally. In Mallorca, American marchers Charles Lasater and Sinthya Penn met with the President and Vice-president of the Regional Parliament and led a local march in Palma with 2,000 people, the largest peace demonstration ever seen on that island.

On to Africa

The World March entered Africa on November 19, traveling through the Moroccan cities Nador, Marrakech, Guelmim, and the capital Rabat, where they met with members of Parliament. In Tan-Tan they marchers danced with the tuaregs, or desert people, and attended a tea ceremony in a desert tent in the Sahara.

In a historical ceremony, a Peace Torch was passed from the Liberian delegation of the World March to the delegation of Sierra Leone on the Mano River Union Bridge, the border between the two countries. In the 90s, both countries were involved in civil wars which have lead to hundreds of thousands of killed and mutilated people. The wars have become known all over the world for the abuse of children as ‘kid soldiers’, and in both countries have many traumatized people still working on reaching reconciliation.

The World March for Peace & Nonviolence
OCTOBER Update

by Dennis Redmond

Dear Friends,

The World March for Peace and Nonviolence has successfully completed its first month. The base team of marchers has traveled through 21 countries on their journey, over three continents, meeting with individuals, students, groups and organizations, and heads-of-state and elected officials. Here are a few of the highlights of the first 30 days:

Marchers Receive Gift of World’s Largest Peace Sign.

After an exciting kickoff in New Zealand and Australia, the March experienced one of its emotional highpoints on the morning of October 7th when the base team members witnessed the formation of the largest human peace sign ever made, executed to perfection by more than 12,000 students from schools in the town of Lucena, in the Philippines. For one week, the students, aged 10 to 15, rehearsed forming the giant symbol inside the Olympic stadium. Astounded by the spectacle and the beauty of the event, the audience, consisting of base team members, NGOs, politicians, and cultural and artistic groups, could not hold back their tears.

A Blessing from Gandhi’s Granddaughter.

In India, the base team was received by Tara Gandhi Bhattacharji, Gandhi’s granddaughter. “I do what I can humbly to promote justice in our country, in the spirit of my grandfather,” she said. “We have to teach humans to free themselves from their fears and not to terrorize others.” She then personally presented each member of the base team with a gift of a hand-woven cotton scarf. The team later participated at a symbolic act at the border between Pakistan and India, two emerging nuclear powers in eternal conflict.

The World March calls on Japan to close US bases.

In a meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs World March spokesperson Rafa de la Rubia congratulated Japan for its anti-nuclear status and called on the country’s new government to maintain Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution, which prohibits an act of war by the state, at all costs. In a letter addressed to the Prime Minister and handed to Yoshinori Takeda, Deputy Director of the Arms Control and Disarmament Division of the Non-Proliferation and Science Department, de la Rubia called on Japan to “represent the true sentiment of the majority of her citizens and advance three initiatives at an international level: the elimination of nuclear weapons; the renunciation of war as a means to resolve conflicts…and the closure of foreign bases that are maintained on the territory of other nations.” Regarding the latter, de la Rubia said during the meeting, “We encouraged Japan to consider removing US military bases from her soil.”

President of Finland Receives Marchers.

Finnish President Tarja Halonen received a World March for Peace delegation in the official presidential residence in Helsinki. Mrs. Halonen offered her endorsement of the World March stating, “Next year we face the difficult but important task of revising the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The government of Finland supports the total elimination of nuclear arms.”

Through the Middle East and Balkans.

In addition to the main route, two special teams were formed: a Middle East Team, which passed through Egypt, Israel, Palestine, Jordan and Syria, and a Balkans team, which traveled through Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Kosovo, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia and Italy. The two teams met on October 27 in Istanbul, the bridge between Europe and Asia. During their tour the Middle East team heard about the conflicts across the entire region in meetings with pacifist, environmentalist, and religious groups, together with various politicians of various levels. “Regardless of the labels people have like their religion, underneath we are dealing with human beings who suffer the same,” said Eduardo Gozalo, member of the team. “In speaking with people in these parts it was important to discuss the roots of the violence which are to be found in fear: the fear of loneliness, of insecurity, of illness, of death. This causes people to behave in violent ways. If you can resolve these problems, faith in the future grows and violence recedes.”

Noble Peace Laureates Welcome March

The World March was recognized in Berlin on Wednesday by the 10th World Summit of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. The occasion was marked by a speech by Silo, founder of Universalist Humanism and an acknowledged inspiration for the March.

“For the first time in history an event of this magnitude has been put in motion by the participants themselves,” he said. “The true strength of this impulse is born in the simple act of one who, out of conscience, joins a dignified cause and shares it with others.” (Read full text of talk)

Through its spokesperson, Rafael de la Rubia, the March was officially presented with the Summit’s “Charter for a World Without Violence,” which it has committed to promote.

Coming up:

World March for Peace and Nonviolence

www.worldmarchusa.net

The World March for Peace & Nonviolence: 2 Oct 2009 – 2 Jan 2010

World March for Peace & Nonviolence
WHAT

The World March for Peace and Nonviolence is the united effort of more than one million people in 7 continents who yearn for peace and are calling outfor the end of war and nuclear arms and the elimination of violence of all kinds.
The march aims to generate consciousness of the dangerous global situation in which we are living, a situation marked by the heightened probability of nuclear conflict, a renewed arms race, and the violent military occupation of foreign territories.

WHY
Because we can end world hunger with 10% of what is spent on arms. Imagine how life would be if 30-50% of the arms budget went toward improving people’s lives instead of being used for destruction.
Because eliminating wars and violence means leaving human pre-history behind and taking a giant step forward in the evolution of our species.
Because in this aspiration we are accompanied by the strength of the voices of hundreds of prior generations who suffered the consequences of war, and whose echo continues to be heard today in all those places where it continues to leave its sinister trail of dead, disappeared, disabled, refugees and displaced.
Because a “world without wars” is an image that opens the future and seeks to become reality in every corner of the planet, as violence gives way to dialogue.
The moment has come for the voiceless to be heard! Out of agonizing and urgent need, millions of human beings are crying out for an end to wars and violence.
We can make that happen by uniting all the forces of pacifism and active non-violence worldwide.

OVERVIEW
For the first time ever, an International team of marchers will cross the planet from New Zealand to Argentina. At the same time there will be initiatives taking place in more than 100 countries linking everything together. Thousands of events including marches, festivals, exhibits, concerts, forums, conferences, and social, cultural, educational, and athletic events will take place to raise awareness of the urgent need for peace and nonviolence.

WHEN
The World March will begin in New Zealand on October 2, 2009, the anniversary of Gandhi’s birth, declared the “International Day of Non-Violence” by the United Nations. It will conclude in the Andes Mountains (Punta de Vacas, Aconcagua, Argentina) on January 2, 2010.

WHERE
Starting in Wellington, New Zealand and ending in Punta de Vacas at the foot of the Andes Mountains in Argentina.

Continents
7

Countries participating
100+

Distance travelled
99,419 miles (160,000 kilometers)

Participants in the tour

Proposals of the World March
• nuclear disarmament at a global level;
• the immediate withdrawal of invading troops from occupied territories;
• the progressive and proportional reduction of conventional weapons;
• the signing of non-aggression treaties between countries;
• the renunciation by governments of the use of war as a means to resolve conflicts.
• To create a new global consciousness – as has already happened with environmental issues – that recognizes the urgent need to condemn of all forms of violence and bring about real Peace.

Origins
The World March is a proposal for an unprecedented social mobilization, advanced by the Humanist Movement through one of its affiliated organizations, “World Without Wars”.

Who is Participating?
The World March has received the endorsement of thousands of people, pacifist and nonviolence groups, a variety of institutions, and renowned figures from the worlds of science, culture, and politics, who are sensitive to the urgency of the moment. It has also inspired an enormous diversity of initiatives in more than 100 countries, becoming a rapidly growing human phenomenon. Some of endorsers include: Yoko Ono, Jimmy Carter, President Michelle Bachelet, Zubin Mehta, Viggo Mortensen, Abolition 2000, Mayors for Peace. For an extensive list see theworldmarch.org/

What is happening in the US/NYC
The World Marchers will pass through the US Nov 30 – Dec 3, 2009. We are encouraging the development of local, state, and regional marches and it is our goal to have activities connected to the march in each of the 50 states during its 3-month duration.

In New York, we are promoting the development of hundreds of local initiatives by community groups and associations, elementary schools, high schools and universities, churches, mosques and temples, non-profit peace, immigration, youth, and social services organizations , and at the city government level. These initiatives will be multiple in forms but singular in purpose: to give a voice to the majority of world citizens who want peace and an end to violence as a means of social interaction.

We call for all those who agree to join us in organizing, educating and planning for the World March.
