The High Commission of India in New Zealand is inviting the community to participate in the ‘Global March for Peace’ walk on Sunday, September 30 in Auckland.

This walk is to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and will be observed by Indians all over the world. The purpose of this march is to highlight Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy of Peace and Non-Violence.

The United Nations has declared October 2, the actual birth date of Mahatma Gandhi as the International Day of Non-Violence and as an initiative to spread the message of the immortal soul, this march is organised across the globe.

The Global Peace march will start at 10 a.m. on Sunday, September 30 from 80 Queen Street, next to BNZ Bank and reach Aotea Centre by 10:20 a.m. which will be followed by a brief program. People are asked to report to the starting point at 9:45 a.m.

Members from all the communities are invited to participate in Global Peace March, and anyone planning to carry placards and banners supporting the cause is welcomed.

This initiative can be spread on social media by putting the hashtag #Bapuat150.
