THIS YEAR ON SEPTEMBER 11, PROCLAIM THE POWER AND EFFECTIVENESS OF NON-VIOLENCE
New Yorkers for a Department of Peace (NY-DoP) and the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence (MKGI) are sponsoring 100 Years of Non-Violence, a campaign inviting people everywhere to organize and attend special viewings of the movie Gandhi (R. Attenborough, 1982), to be shown in venues worldwide on September 11, 2006. NY-DoP and MKGI are working to facilitate the theatrical re-release of the film, television airings of Gandhi on that day, and individual and community screenings of the DVD.

Since 2001, the date of September 11 has been associated with violence, fear and destruction. It is a heartbreaking reminder of the catastrophic price of violence. September 11 also marks the date, in 1906, that Mohandas K. Gandhi launched the modern non-violence movement, 100 years ago, which charted a new course for peace building and conflict transformation.



To honor the memory of those killed on September 11, 2001 and all who have suffered as a result of violence worldwide, NY-D0P and MKGI invite people around the globe to commemorate this September 11 by remembering this 100-year anniversary of the birth of the modern non-violence movement.


NY-DoP and MKGI are producing a short film, featuring Arun Gandhi, to be shown before the feature that will help dispel common myths and reveal the true power of non-violence. The short film will inspire simple, clear calls to action to educate ourselves, get involved, and “be the change we wish to see” (Gandhi).

Please view the 100 Years of Non-Violence website (www.nyc-dop.com/gandhi) to:

• Find out more about the campaign and how to get involved

[DUCHESS NOTE - Interesting tidbit I came across on one of my fav blogs ... Anonymoses. [Link is in lefthand colunm.] Which then steered me to another blog called "Police State USA". While the rightwing Corporate media is going on and on about death of Zarqawi, some interesting news or gossip is going on in DC. Check it out ... STATE DEPARTMENT SOURCE CONFIRMS BUSH-RICE "RELATIONSHIP" (June 7th)

You know most Republicans are hypocrits, liars and incredibly corrupt. Morals? Values? What morals and values? Your joking! They have none! Republicans think its wrong for Clinton to have a fling, but seems its okay for that spoil rich brat GWB to have a fling with Rice. Geez! They must think Americans are dumb and do not pay attention. Wrong ... we do ... big time!]
