3,500 children from 8 schools in the city of A Coruña, will be participating on 26/04/19 along the Paseo Marítimo, between two symbols of the city, the Millennium obelisk to the Tower of Hercules.

Human chains symbolize an act of human expression, carrying out a combined act between numerous boys and girls to publicly make visible in the street a position, in this case: to ask for Peace and Nonviolence in the planet.

This action organized by the association “Mundo Sen Guerras e Sen Violencia (World without War and Violence) da Coruña”, is aimed at the educational sector of the city and aims to give visibility to the “2nd World March for Peace and Nonviolence” which will cover 160 countries (from 02/10/19 to 08/03/20).

The 1st Human Chain took place in 2010 and 2,500 schoolchildren from 11 schools in the city participated.

The central themes that the World March wants to debate are:

The prohibition of nuclear weapons
Non-discrimination of any kind
Nonviolence as a new culture
Creating conditions for an integrally sustainable planet
The integration of regions and areas with socio-economic systems that guarantee well-being and resources for all
Re-founding the United Nations

During this April activity the students will participate along the promenade of the city filling the area with life and joy and will be passing between their hands some balls with the shape of the planet as a symbolic and participatory act of the attendees.
