The World March arrives in Cádiz

The World March reaches the oldest city in Europe

In Cádiz, at the Castillo de Santa Catalina, at 19:00 p.m., a unique event called "We dance for Peace" was held, organized by Mundo Sin Guerras y Sin Violencia and other groups, who gathered to support the passage of the World March for Peace and Nonviolence.

An open space for poetry, music, theatrical performances and dances, with micro open to expose what each group does.
Paco Palomo, member of the Cádiz Association for Non-Violence, promoter of the act in which Eduardo Godino, Carmen Marín, Carmen P. Orihuela, María Désirée, Juanma Vázquez, Mery and Maverir of “Aro que Swing” participated, Espacio Quiñones and Michelle, all of them artists, poets, dancers, among others.

Palomo, asked himself: “and what is active nonviolence?”, Responding: “non-violence practices protest, civil disobedience, non-collaboration, respect for others.

It is also "not doing harm" to the other, accepting diversity and mutual help

It is also the "do no harm" to the other, accepting diversity and mutual help. Non-violence is an ethical-political practice that rejects the use of aggression, in any of its forms.

He opposes the use of force as a means and as an end, because he considers that every violent act generates more violence ... "

He continued: “It is also this act, to receive the 2nd World March that began in Madrid, on October 2, and that after Andalusia will go to Africa, America and the rest of the continents.

And now to them, to the dealers, we give the floor. Here today, we highlight the greater participation of female members. The same is happening in many areas of the planet. Women are more involved and are the most active ”.

Then the members of the World March Base Team spoke

Later, the members of the World March Base Team, Luis Silva, spoke about the actions of the WM, Sonia Venegas about the participation of the universities and Rafael del Rubia highlighted the false story that had been installed in some places about: “The fear to the different one, according to their skin color, language, religion, origin, etc. that served to generate distrust, promote conflicts and ultimately wars.

Emphasizing that, the direct experience of contact with people from different countries, is that despite all these differences, what people aspire to in all latitudes is to achieve a dignified and honest life for themselves and with their loved ones ... Everything else is stories made up to create fear, deflect problems and thus better manipulate people. "
