Michelle Bachelet waves from the balcony

30.12.2009 - Santiago - Pía Figueroa

The President of Chile was the first out of all the Heads of State who joined the World March for Peace and Non-Violence, offering encouragement with her television message from the very start of this initiative.

She sends her greeting from the balcony of the Palacio de La Moneda, along with Rafael de la Rubia, international coordinator of the World March, Tomás Hirsch, Latin American spokesperson for New Humanism, and Gloria Morrison, president of the organisation World without Wars, the main driving force of the initiative in the country.

The greeting was welcomed with jubilation by activists who were filling the Plaza de la Constitución from four different places in the capital where the columns of the Carnival for Peace set out in the early hours of the morning and spread out through Santiago to welcome this March.
