Despite the situation with COVID-19, the “100 Actions for Peace” campaign is continuing. As of June 16, 2020, there were 49 actions marked as part of the campaign, making it closer to reach it’s goal of 100 actions by the end of the year.
But what is happening in June?
Wikipedia for peace
What a time to write about peace. To enrich internet with more information about inspiring activists and organisations fighting for peace and non-violence and against war and militarism. That’s what SCI Switzerland is doing from 12th until the 19th of June, 2020. Online.
But that is not where it ends. A centenary of peace activism of SCI has inspired SCI Poland to organize another online camp just one day later.
