Peace Day 2010

Peace Day is September 21.  A day to raise awareness of the young generation on the peace issues affecting our country. A day to think and meditate on nonviolence and peacebuilding in the Philippines. A day to celebrate the peace journey, the small gains, the victories as well as to reflect and learn from those that have gone before us.

GenPeace is proposing three ways for you to celebrate:

1. JOIN THE PEACE DAY CELEBRATION AT QC CIRCLE:

“Remember, remember the 21st of September 2010”

8AM-1PM, September 21. QC CIRCLE.

Music, Art, Exhibit Booths, Cultural Presentations, Solidarity Messages. A Celebration of Diversity.

PEACE DAY!

Celebrate Peace Day 2010

2. Not in Manila? ORGANIZE YOUR LOCAL CELEBRATIONS.

Sa buong mundo, September 21 is the UN-declared International Day of Peace. Find people celebrating Peace Day in your locality, or organize your local event. It could be a mini-concert, a city-wide music event or anything that celebrates diversity and peace. The day is also an opportunity for you and others to learn about the armed conflicts that trouble the country. Contact GenPeace if you are planning local celebrations, and our local members may want to coordinate and celebrate with you. GenPeace is a national network of youth peace advocates, coordinate with projects or activities of our local partners.

Pwede mo rin isabay ang commemoration ng Martial Law Declaration (Sept 21 din yon e) at ang Peace Day. Kasi, pag may martial law, walang kapayapaan.. konektado!


3. LASTLY, SUBMIT YOUR REFLECTIONS ON PEACE:

Call for Submission of Entries: “Anagnorisis” A GenPeace collection of Poetry, Photos, Essays and Short Stories on Peace

Malapit na naman ang International Day of Peace. Oo, sa September 21 yun, at may mga activities ulit sa Quezon City circle at kahit malayo, pwede kang makilahok…

Do you have ‘pieces’ (i.e. essay, poetry, photos, short stories) on Peace? Share it, and GenPeace will publish it.

Meron ka bang mga tula, sanaysay, larawan at maikling kwento na patungkol sa giyera’t kapayapaan? Ibahagi mo sa amin, at pag napili, isama nating mailimbag! Selected pieces will also be read during the Peace Day celebration.
