A few days before the International Day of Peace and the UN International Day for the total elimination of nuclear weapons, an unprecedented and hopeful gathering is taking place, with the objective of mobilizing citizens around four fundamental issues for the future of humanity: PEACE, CLIMATE, SOCIAL JUSTICE, DEMOCRACY.
You can consult the call of the National Collective of Peace Marches « For Peace, Nuclear Disarmament and Climate; for Social Justice and Human Rights » by clicking here: https://www.collectifpaix.org/2021/09/appel-du-collectif-national-en-date-du-10-septembre-2021/
In this context, the national day of action on Saturday September 25, 2021 will be one of the strong moments of mobilization.
A national call of convergences underlines the importance of the mobilizations of Saturday, September 25, 2021 around the following text « For the climate, as for Peace: less lobbies, more democracy » gathering several hundred associations and organizations (see the call here).
Note that this mobilization is developing everywhere in the world.
It is up to each of us and to all the organizations of the National Collective of Peace Marches to call on their respective members to act everywhere so that in as many communes as possible actions take place, small or large, that allow for the development of a democratic debate throughout the country and to gather as many citizens as possible for peace, climate, nuclear disarmament, social justice and democracy.
The national collective calls on all organizations that recognize themselves in this mobilization to express themselves at all levels (international, national, regional and local) through the press and social networks to call for the success of the International Day of Peace and the day of September 25 to clearly support the current momentum.
Note that in Paris, the day of September 25 will be marked by a citizen’s agora at the Place de la République on Saturday 25 at 2pm.
Please accept our friendly greetings,
The coordination of the national collective:
Roland Nivet, Mouvement de la Paix; Michel Thouzeau, Peace Movement, Teachers for Peace; Muriel Vaillant, Appel des Cent Bagnolet; Véronique Martin, Confederal Secretary of the CGT trade union; Michel Cibot, AFCDRP (Association of Municipalities, Departments and Regions for Peace); Annick Suzor-Weiner, Pugwash
As expressed in the constitutive call of the national collective « On the march for peace » let us say loud and clear everywhere in France « For Peace: Stop the war – Stop the violence – Stop the misery. » Let us express our will to live in peace in a world of solidarity, justice and fraternity. We are convinced that none of our differences of conviction, membership or philosophical, political, religious, trade union or other sensitivities should be an obstacle to the expression of this common aspiration.
