Wellington Peace Rally Thursday Midland Park 12pm
Demonstration to support a non-military response to the horrific events in the USA
On Thursday 20th September 2001, from 12 - 1pm, a group of concerned Wellington citizens will hold a peaceful, apolitical demonstration to support the victims of the terrorism against the US and celebrate peace, and the tolerance and understanding that sustains peace in times of tragedy. We want to support positive alternatives to military retaliation. Retaliation would inevitably hurt innocent people while doing nothing to avoid a repetition of last week's events.
Wellingtonians feeling concern and fear at the possible escalation of violence in the world will march from Midland Park at 12.00 for a 12.30 rally at Parliament. At Parliament we hope to make a presentation to Prime Minister Helen Clark to ask her to voice the concerns of all New Zealanders who do not want more violence.
To get a good turn-out please pass this on to your friends and colleagues and encourage them to attend. We would like to make this a positive event. We will have live music and hopefully some performers etc. If you are interested in helping coordinate or have ideas to strengthen the event, which is being planned at short notice, please contact us at the below hotmail address.
