The president of the NGO ‘ALCRER’ (Association Against Racism, Ethnocentrism, and Regionalism), Martin Assogba, has just joined the World March for Peace and Nonviolence.

Impressed by this noble action, he immediately proposed to sponsor the big manifestations that will take place during the World March in Benin.

Mr Assogba equally stated that he will be at the head of the huge Caravan on the 26th December 2009: “In the same way that we fought against slavery, we are now fighting for an end to war and for the abolition of nuclear weapons”.

The caravan will arrive in Cotonou stadium where there will be a huge concert before the departure of the Beninese Delegation to Punta de Vacas in Argentina where the World March will finish its journey.
