Climate March and International Day of Peace Gathering in Charlottetown

Marie Hagen, CND

Several of us joined a group in front of Province House at noon on Sunday, September 21, to unite in solidarity with people around the world on this special day of the Climate March and International Day of Peace. The theme of our gathering emphasized the link between environmental stewardship, social justice, community celebration and peace. Emphasis was placed on the strengthening of this link if our dream of healing a planet in crisis is to be realized. Groups present included the Council of Canadians, the Island Peace Committee and Earth Action.

The event consisted of several speeches, entertainment relevant to the purpose of the gathering, and a short walk in union with those around the world who were walking. Sister Anne Gillis explained to the group our Congregation of Notre Dame involvement in these issues on a worldwide basis.
