The World March reaches the oldest city in Europe

In Cádiz, in the Castle of Santa Catalina, at 19: 00, a unique event called “We Dance for Peace” was organized by World Without Wars and Without Violence and other groups, which gathered to support the passage of the World March for Peace and Nonviolence.

An open space for poetry, music, theatrical performances and dances, with open micro to present  what each group does.
Paco Palomo, member of the Cádiz Association for NonViolence, promoter of the act in which Eduardo Godino, Carmen Marín, Carmen P. Orihuela, María Désirée, Juanma Vázquez, Mery and Maverir of “Aro que Swing” participated, Espacio Quiñones and Michelle, all of them artists, poets, dancers, among others.

Palomo, asked himself: “And what is active nonviolence?”, Answering: “nonviolence practices protest, civil disobedience, non-collaboration, respect for others.

It is also about “not hurting” the other, accepting diversity and mutual help

It is also the “not hurting” the other, accepting diversity and mutual help. Nonviolence, is an ethical-political practice that rejects the use of aggression, in any of its forms.

It opposes the use of force as a means and as an end, because it considers that every violent act generates more violence… “

He continued: “It is also this act, to receive the 2nd World March that began in Madrid, the October 2, and that after Andalusia will pass to Africa, America and the rest of the continents.

And now to them, to the organisers, we give them the floor. Today here, we highlight the greater participation of female members. As is happening in many areas of the planet. Women get more involved and are the most active. ”
