Women’s Peace Vigil for International Peace Day

To mark International Peace Day, a Women’s Peace Vigil was held on 21st September 2006 at Lipton Circus, Colombo. Women gathered from many parts of the island, including Batticaloa, Polonnaruwa, Kandy, Puttlum, Kurunegala, Balangoda, Galewela, Galle, Buttala, Badulla, Hatton, Mahiyanganaya, Jaela and Colombo. The peace vigil was to commemorate International Peace Day and to convey to the government, the LTTE and the international community our commitment to peace in Sri Lanka, and to request that peace talks resume urgently. The vigil ended by releasing colourful balloons with messages of peace attached, and the group marched around Vihara Maha Devi Park with peace banners.
