October 2 - International Day of Non-Violence

The International Day of Non-Violence is marked on 2 October, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of non-violence.

According to General Assembly resolution A/RES/61/271 of 15 June 2007, which established the commemoration, the International Day is an occasion to "disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness". The resolution reaffirms "the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence" and the desire "to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence".

Introducing the resolution in the General Assembly on behalf of 140 co-sponsors, India’s Minister of State for External Affairs, Mr. Anand Sharma, said that the wide and diverse sponsorship of the resolution was a reflection of the universal respect for Mahatma Gandhi and of the enduring relevance of his philosophy. Quoting the late leader’s own words, he said: "Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man".

Did you see the other two small pictures with the tram (on the map up)?

The both are selected for GE but not mine! Why?

I have not seen, but I think that the reviewer does not understand the size.

Ah, I see, you're talking about it. This is a moving objects. I have the same. But I think at the station is not entirely correct...

Много мило графитче. Не съм виждал досега толкова трогателна картинка. У нас (в София) са по-скоро от грозновати до отвретителни с изключение на два графита, единият на дядо Добри, свят старец, който се оказал най-големия дарител на църквата, а другият на царе от Първата българска държава.
