The 3rd World March for 2024 is announced at the Forum for Nonviolence in Mar del Plata - Argentina

In celebration of 10 º aniversario of the Week for Nonviolence in Mar del Plata driven Osvaldo bocero y Karina Freira where activists from more than 20 countries of America, Europe y Africa.

Alli Rafael of the Rubia announced live from Madrid that in the 2024 the 3ª World March for Peace and Nonviolence.

El Forum on Nonviolence It began with a small and emotional ceremony of a request for world peace in three languages: Spanish, Portuguese y guarani. It was a few minutes of meditation and connection between the participants.  

Osvaldo presented the achievements and progress of what began as a Week for Nonviolence Within the framework of 1ª World March in the 2009 and how it has progressed during these 10 years. A short summary documentary was screened with images of that journey.

We reproduce some of the proposals that Rafael of the Rubia, the spokesperson for the World March, stated in his speech:

"Is Nonviolence Week It is an example of permanence for 10 years, which serves as inspiration. It is the sustained activity in the process, which shows us the way and the progress.

Word nonviolence:

On this day we want to attend to the term nonviolence

In early February 2016, in the Forum of Peña Blanca (Honduras), the humanist association MSGySV launched the campaign for the inclusion of the word nonviolence in the dictionary of Academies of the Spanish Language.

It is about extending this action to other languages ​​that do not have the word either. Nonviolence in Russian is said nonviolence, in Czech it is nenásilí, in German nonviolence, in Italian nonviolence and in English Nonviolence, but in Spanish it doesn't exist.

For the word to be included in the dictionary of the Spanish language, it must be documented that it is used normally, this is how its possible inclusion works. It is therefore up to the social agents to work so that its use is generalized and that its meaning is assimilated and understood in all places where Spanish is spoken.

We take advantage of Nonviolence Day to invite it to be used as a single word, together and without the hyphen, and thus we can get the word officialized in the Spanish language. Let's collaborate to popularize its use and, with it, to give entity to a keyword for a new social era.
