In Budapest Hungary: March 17, 2007 marking the fourth
anniversary of the war in Iraq...

the following is part of an english translation of a világBékejel 2007 flyer...

világBékejel:
The Living Peace Sign
website: http://www.bekejel.net


The internationally recognized symbol of peace which became hugely
popular in the 1960's, is having an on going resurgence. Throughout
the world, as part of the ongoing efforts of The Humanist Movement
promoting non-violence, the 'Human Peace Sign' has emerged.

Beginning in Budapest, Hungary, the symbolic act is being held in
cities across the planet. On March 17, 2007 marking the fourth
anniversary of the war in Iraq,
these cities will unite, each forming their own human peace signs. These events will begin with a simple
ceremony, accompanied with music and entertainment and then their
lanterns/candles/torches will be lit and they will all stand together
forming a giant peace sign.

Humans from all walks of life, religious beliefs and races will
symbolically join together, showing that their desire for peace comes
from deep within their hearts. They believe we must open the lines of
dialogue regarding any acts of war. The deaths of innocent people and
the continual build up of the nuclear arsenal of any nation, is
unacceptable.

Come join us at Hero's Square in Budapest. Assembly is on Saturday, March 17th, 5pm.

The Peace Sign was started by Hungarian Humanists

Did anything happen in Ireland to mark the 4th. anniversary of the war and continued Irish involvement in it?

Nice little gathering in Shannon happened, about 15-20 people, mostly stalwarts. It was organised by stalwart Conor Cregan. Deirdre from the Pitstop Ploughshares laid a wreath in remembrance of the war dead and said a few words; everyone else laid daffodils. A few people spoke.

The numbers who feel it necessary to remember the war dead are small, which is somewhat depressing, given Shannon is the place where the munitions go through. But it was a good ceremony and better than nothing at all. Many people have moved on, unfortunately. A combination of bandwagon jumping with some and strategic thinking with other, more committed activists. It's a terrible pity there is so little sense of urgency about keeping up the pressure around Shannon.
