CALL to ACTION: Candle Peace Action held across Japan! (January 9, 2009)
Candle Peace Action for solidarity with people of Palestine was held on
January 8th. YWCAs across Japan held the event to respond to a call by
YWCA of Palestine. Here are photos of some of many other YWCAs’ peace action
on that day.
With songs and dance, over 50 members appealed for peace on Gaza.
Tokyo YWCA Musashino Center:
Silently prayed for those who were under suffering.
Street action drew attention from many people and they were willing to
hear about what’s going on in Gaza. Reality and facts about Palestine seems
not being covered enough by media.
Street appeal in downtown Osaka got attention from lots of people and they
read our message on a board. People pass by and said “Peace!” and other
words of encouragement.
