A Monumental Journey

A Monumental JourneyWorld March for Peace Logo

The World March for Peace and Nonviolence calls for the end of wars and the abolition of nuclear weapons. According to Chris Wells, the U.S. spokesperson for the march, “It aims to create a global consciousness, similar to what has already happened with climate change, that universally condemns all forms of violence.”

The international team of marchers reached New York in November, then moved on to Montreal, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and San Francisco. They’ll continue to Mexico, with events planned on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, then head south through Central and South America. The World March will complete its monumental journey in the heights of the Andes on January 2, at Punta de Vacas, Argentina after traveling 99,000 miles.
