AN INTERNATIONAL OPEN CALL
Europe Peace Tour – 2011.
by: Peace-by bike
“We know that we can aim, achieve and succeed in uniting all the peace-loving and anti-violent communities of the world in a common movement, regardless of age, culture, religion, colour of skin, or other diversities. Peace-by bike and its first trek – the Europe Peace Tour -2011 – is launched with the hope, that time has come to make such a historic move.”
The aims of the Europe Peace Tour - 2011 – an international bicycle tour:
Our aim to make a stand for the peace-loving communities. Although the majority of mankind are against armament and wars, we do not send a straight-forward, clear message about our opposition, but we let a powerful minority manipulate us. Wake up! This is the time to co-operate and object.
Our aim is to spread a new kind of global conscientiousness that refuses all forms of widely-used and accepted violence.
Our aim is not only to determine human rights in theory, in campaigns, but to make them be used and obeyed.
Our aim is to make wars finish immediately: governments sign non-aggression pacts with each other, and give up wars as the possible device of resolving conflicts. It should be amended in their constitutions.
Our aim is to achieve that the countries owning nuclear weapons start reducing armaments simultaniously and proportionally.
Our aim is to promote and strengthen intercultural discussions, to emphasize mutual purposes and accomplishments of good-will.
