Italy, Genoa: In the square by 374 weeks .......

We are a group of men and women, belonging to or not to political groups
and pacifist organizations, 374 weeks that manifested on every Wednesday
steps of the Ducal Palace of Genoa (Italy).

In September 2001, when there was the attack on twin towers, and the U.S.
attacked Afghanistan under the pretext of hunting Bin Laden, tried a way
to express our dismay and our indignation.

We decided to take the 'quiet time', a modes of expression already
implemented several times in history: for example supported by
U.S. Suffragette and Black Women in Jerusalem.

The Ducal Palace, before which we then meet every Wednesday from 18 to 19,
is a place of particular significance, not only for our city. There held the
G8,at 2001 year, the assembly by the eight pre-powerful arrogate the right to decide the
fate of the planet, and which together with thousands of other / and we
helped to challenge.

When we started we thought no doubt that we would be left / and the streets
for eight years.

But certainly we could not stop our protest when Italy was directly involved
in military operations in Afghanistan when the U.S. attacked even Iraq (this
time under the guise of research of "weapons of mass destruction"), when
Italy also, and most faithful obedient U.S. ally, has agreed to be also involved
in that war.

We expressed our indignation at the false "peace missions" in which
the Italian army was involved, starting with the one in Lebanon,
where, to separate two contenders, was only an international force on
the territory of the attacked, and we have solidarity the nonviolent
struggle of the Burmese people, and we have continued to seek truth and
justice in the processes associated with the G8, we have declared all of
"subversive" when heavy accusation has been addressed by the judiciary to
those who protested against one of the G8 preparatory meetings in March 2000
in Naples.

Conscious of our limited resources, we have distributed to passersby
in these eight years well 142.200 flyers and spoke with everyone every
time we have had the opportunity

Neither the local nor the national ones have never shown to realize our
demands. But we believe that the war cannot solve any problems of humanity
but only serve to increase the profits of who builds and sells weapons,
to maintain an "international order" inhumane, to concentrate in few hands
control international economy.

For this reason we continue to see us every Wednesday, from 18 to 19, on
the steps of the ducal palace
- For an international policy of justice and peace, to prevent that 20%
of the inhabitants of the planet is hoarding 80% of resources
- For the conversion into civil war trades.
- For the reduction of military expenditure to the benefit of social.
- Against all wars, and for the withdrawal of Italian troops from all theaters of war.

World March Press Release January, 07, 2009

Israeli and Palestinian pacifists are examples for the whole world.

Right now, thousands of young Israelis are on the streets demanding that their
Government halts the invasion of Gaza. Many have been imprisoned, just like
the conscientious objectors, soldiers or conscripts that refuse to cross the
border into Palestinian territory.
The Youth of Palestine are protesting not only against the Violence of Israel –
they are also demanding that Hamas halts its barrage of missiles on the people of Israel..
It’s not easy to raise one’s voice for Peace when violence has been
unleashed, nor is it easy to bear the aggression against ones own people
when one is on the receiving end of other people’s fear and anger.
The Palestinian and Israeli pacifists are an example for the whole world. It is
not their point of view that is published in the newspapers; it is not their
efforts that the press shows. We only see, through the mass media, the propaganda
and the counter propaganda of those who lead the various factions, justifying their actions.
The people of both Israel and Palestine are living in fear, and the Violent elements on both sides are capitalizing on this fear in their own self-interest.
We, World Without Wars Australia, denounce the Violence of the State of Israel and we similarly denounce the violence of the armed Palestinian groups.
Israeli and Palestinian organizations are united in their support of The World March for Peace and Non-Violence and the awakening of a new consciousness denouncing the scourge of war.
Right now, the invasion of Gaza by the Israeli army must cease immediately.
The people of Palestine must take on Non-Violent solutions to their situation more readily. A Palestinian State is necessary. It is the responsibility of the International community for ensuring this does happen.
We live in a ‘global village’ - we are all responsible for the betterment, the Humanisation of the people of the World.
Situations of Violence are becoming more common and increasingly more extreme. We need to change the ‘psychosocial atmosphere’ that we, the people of Earth, are immersed in.
This is the objective of the World March for Peace and Nonviolence
Our most important stand is that of total World Nuclear Disarmament. This is the first step in the reversal of the violent direction in which we are heading. The process of the elimination of violence will be difficult – there are no doubts to this – but unless we start now, the future certainly looks bleak for Humanity
The World March for Peace and Non-Violence is a global cause, in which all races will converge, all peoples, all cultures and all religions for the surpassing of the ‘suffering’ we all experience today. Israeli & Palestinian organizations & people have wholeheartedly taken on this cause - they can see the logic in a Non-Violent solution.

Those here should, I think, be interested in indicating their support now for the JewishVOICES (NSW) Statement about Gaza = 31 December 2008.

One Palestinian friend who helped to craft the statement noted:

"The aim of this statement is to show that we are all appalled and saddened by the current escalation of the conflict and the bloodshed it inflicts on people on both sides. The statement seeks a middle ground which is the minimum accepted by some groups and the maximum expected by others."
