Join the Global Article 9 Conference to Abolish War on May 4-6, 2008 at Makuhari Messe, Chiba:
The Global Article 9 Conference to Abolish War aims to promote the sublime ideal of Article 9 as a world principle. This international gathering from May 4 to 6, 2008 in Tokyo will gather the voices of the world that support and share the spirit of Article 9 as the common wisdom of humanity, heritage of the world, and hope for world peace. The participants - Nobel Peace prize winners, world-renowned intellectuals, NGO activists, artists and civilians - will send the spirit of Article 9 soaring around the world.
The Article 9 Peace Walk is a pre-event of the conference. It is entirely planned and organized by citizens who seek to hand messages of support for Article 9 from the peoples of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and the many towns along walk route to the participants of the Global Article 9 Conference and to the world’s peoples.
The Peace Walk marchers will set off on February 25 from the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima. They will arrive May 3 at Tokyo’s Hibiya Park to join the Constitution Memorial Gathering. On May 4 they will arrive at the Global Article 9 Conference site in Makuhari Messe, Chiba Prefecture (next to Tokyo) just before it begins.
We all long for peace and know that life is precious. Let’s take action with our minds and spirits! Join the walk and express a strong appeal for peace. Let’s combine our voices in the Article 9 Peace Walk and help make one big voice of humankind in support of Article 9.
