Cape Town, once the home of the International Anti-Apartheid, Peace Movement has increasingly become commercial and conservative. Whatever happened to the peace pole in the city? Erected to mark peace during the eighties it appears to have been taken down during successive DA administrations.
It appears the Peace Pole was moved to Robben Island. Medialternatives would appreciate if readers could send us photo’s to confirm that it is still up and working. Has Peace run out of steam? Whatever happend to the peace movement? As South African’s mourn the loss of Helen Suzman, anti-apartheid stalwart, I call upon peace-loving citizens everywhere to remember peace the peace movement, restore the peace pole and to pray for World Peace Now. Reciting mantra World Peace Now, or May Peace Prevail on Earth has always proven effective in times of trouble.
Lets create a more peaceful World by remembering Helen Suzman’s peace legacy and by assisting peace ambassador Yoko Ono Lennon’s worldwide mission to erect IMAGINE PEACE poles. Or How about a united musician’s aid to the Middle East and Africa? Forget about the politicians, music can win the day and help us all to remember PEACE!
If we don’t do it, who will? If not now, then when?
