National Peace Walk
Updated: May 2
In February 2021 we ran our first National Peace Walk for Yemen which over 10 cities from around New Zealand participated in. Cities included Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Auckland, Blenheim, Hamilton, Invercargill. Our peace walk was fully non-political and its purposes were to raise awareness about the Yemen crisis and encourage our government to take more action to help restore peace in Yemen. In March of 2021, we were amplified by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Yemen where our successes in the coordination of 10+ national events were recognised.
Cities also had performers, speakers and dancers, with participants bringing signs and sang along to a variety of peace songs which were placed throughout our walk.
We hope to see you at one of our future peace walks. Stand with us, rise for Yemen.
