Eighth Fair of Nonviolent Initiatives was held in Quito

In the framework of Nonviolent October, this morning and afternoon was held in Cumandá Parque Urbano, in the city of Quito, the 8th Fair of Nonviolent Initiatives.

Hundreds of people visited stands and participated in recreational activities, sensory, with pets, brain gymnastics, among others that were registered in this fair that already constitutes a reference of activities and initiatives for nonviolence, non-discrimination and inclusion.

Nonviolent Octubre  and the Fair of Nonviolent Initiatives -especially- seeks to make visible the existing initiatives in the city and in the country, around nonviolence and, at the same time, to sensitize more and more broad layers of the population about the importance of working in a nonviolent perspective.

It should be noted that in 2019, October for Peace and Nonviolence has the strong support of the Metropolitan District of Quito, whose full Council approved Resolution No. C 067 – 2019 which declares October as the “Month of Nonviolence in the Metropolitan District of Quito” and resolves that the Metropolitan District of Quito “fosters a culture of peace in diversity, free from violence and discrimination”.

As an antecedent it is pointed out that in June 2007 the General Assembly of the United Nations, in Resolution 61/271, declares October 2 as the International Day of Nonviolence.  With these two brief antecedents, the humanist organizations that converge in the Nonviolent Space carry out every year, since a decade ago, the October for Peace and Nonviolence action.
