Global Peace Vigils, this Sunday

Global Peace Vigils, this Sunday

Kia ora,

in reponse to the call from MoveOn and the Win Without War coalition (see message copied below), there will be a candle-lit vigil for peace starting at 7pm, on Sunday 16 March, in Russell, Waiheke Island, Piha, New Plymouth, Fielding, and Wellington.

Please go to the web site http://www.globalvigil.org for the details of the vigils already planned in Aotearoa / New Zealand, and to add new vigil details for other towns and cities. If you wish to have the details of your vigil included in this week's PMA National 'what's on where' e-listings and on our web site, please send to mailto:pma@xtra.co.nz by 12 noon, Friday.

Thank you __________________________________

Please visit http://www.globalvigil.org and plan a candlelight vigil for peace in your area on Sunday, March 16 at 7 pm. MoveOn.org and the Win Without War coalition, together with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and many faith-based organizations, are calling this vigil, and we need your help.

Beginning in New Zealand, this will be a rolling wave of candlelight gatherings that will quickly cross the globe. It's up to you to make this happen. Today we are asking individuals, like you, to organize a vigil in each community. We're hoping that thousands of small groups around the world will be inspired to come together and stand for peace.

For more information about how to make this happen in your community and to join with millions of others around the globe, go to http://www.globalvigil.org

It's time for the world to come together in this moment of darkness and rekindle the light of reason -- and of hope. It's time to renew our commitment to building a positive world for our children.

With your help, we will see the first candlelight vigil to sweep around the globe on the evening of March 16th. Together, we will lead the nations of the world away from an unnecessary war and toward a peaceful and prosperous future.

Thank you, -Wes Boyd, MoveOn.org; Tom Andrews, Win Without War
