September 21, 2011: International Day of Peace: Asheville

Join us in Asheville on Wednesday, 21st September 2011, from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM, for the 2nd Annual International Day of Peace! Peacetown Asheville and Local 099 of Veterans for Peace, Mountain Area Interfaith Forum and other allies are increasing their Annual International Day of Peace celebration in 2011 from 1 hour to 3 hours, and from a corner by the infamous Magnolia Tree near Pack Square into Pack Square itself.

International Day of Peace has been observed since 1921 through the League of Nations, and was later continued by the United Nations, adding the goal of the one day cease-fire in 2002.
