Global Day of Peace: Call for non-violence
21st September 2018
The world celebrates September 21 every year as the International Day of Peace. The theme of this day's celebration was set in 1981, with September 21 being dedicated to promoting a culture of peace in the world.
The United Nations also called for a 24-hour cessation of violence and conflict, as well as highlighting efforts to spread a culture of peace and prevent violence against children.
The Gulf European Centre for Human Rights marks the day of 21 September as an opportunity for individuals, organisations, and countries to take practical steps to lay the foundations for world peace.
The Gulf European Centre also calls on the international community and humanitarian organisations to support peace in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Al-Ahwaz, Iran, Palestine, and Lebanon.
The Centre calls upon on the international community and international organisations to increase pressure on violators of peace and supporters of terrorism and extremism in the countries of the Middle East and North Africa. It also calls for the prosecution of those who violated peace, supported violence, and extremism and committed crimes against humanity in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
