The Jerusalem Hug / 5MPM, 21 June 2009
When the politicians can not solve the problems of the world, it is time for the people to act. 21 July 2009 will see the third annual Jerusalem Hug (and perhaps fourth annual 5 MILLION PEACE MARCH...), a peaceful convergence upon Jerusalem/Al-Quds, the 'City of Peace.' This humanistic and peaceful event will manifest the will of the people, spanning the whole spectrum: from those most scarred by the bloodshed in the Middle East, to those whose daily lives are barely affected, yet still feel compelled to react! It was the will of the people that brought down the Berlin Wall. Let's do it again! Peace lovers from all generations are welcome – Israelis, Palestinians, and internationals; individuals, organizations, and celebrities; even peace loving politicians are invited to come together for a peaceful future for all citizens of the Middle East.
We are also organizing parallel events and concerts in Los Angeles, London, København, Washington state (unconfirmed), and Rajasthan in India.
