World Without Wars and Without Violence, sent a special invitation to various organisations, entities and media, for their adherence to the activities we organised in the framework of the Latin American March for Nonviolence, carried out in conjunction with the City of Knowledge in the community of Clayton, Panama City, commemorating in the same way, the International Day of Peace on September 21 and the day of Non-Violence on October 02, 2021.
Panamanian youth were very participative in the events organised by World withoutWars and without Violence Panama, celebrating the Latin American March, thanks to the support of the City of Knowledge and the Soka Gakkai of Panama, who said yes to peace and nonviolence in our country.
Maintaining biosecurity measures, on a sunny Tuesday 21 September, the first activity took place, a human image of the symbol of peace, with the distancing requested by the Panamanian authorities, with the representation of the Soka Gakkai youth and students of the Panama Bilingual Academy for the Future, whose young people have been selected among the most outstanding in different areas of the country, for their academic excellence.
On a bright Friday October 1st, very early in the morning, a silent walk was held in the park of the City of Knowledge, remembering the deceased victims of all kinds of violence, as well as for COVID-19, in Panama and the rest of the world. The walk was attended by young volunteers from the Red Cross of Panama, students and teachers from the Isaac Rabin School and young people from the non-profit Buddhist organisation, Soka Gakkai of Panama.
The singer Grettel Garibaldi, made the recording of a radio and audiovisual propaganda that was sent to the main radio and television stations in Panama City, in the same way, the young singer gave her musical theme: “Buscando Paz”, interpreted together with the singers Margarita Henríquez, Yamilka Pitre and Brenda Lao, which was designated as the anthem of the Latin American March in Panama, we made the audiovisual edition of the theme, illustrating it with various images of the activities that were taking place in the Latin American countries of the region during the march and some of the flyers that World without Wars Panama made, to promote the Latin American March; important to note that the logo that was used in all countries for the paraphernalia of the march, was made by World without Wars Panama.

The City of Knowledge and the Isaac Rabin School published messages on their social networks, combining their messages with those of World without Wars and without Violence Panama on social networks, about the events commemorating the Day of Peace and the Day of Nonviolence.
