Singing for peace

14th September 2007 at 01:00
Later this month, co-operation and harmony will come to the fore on the International Day of Peace, September 21, also known as Peace Day by the United Nations.

The aim of the day is to create a global ceasefire, but it is also about promoting peace and non-violence. Those behind the day say: "Peace is more than the absence of war. It is about transforming our societies and uniting our global community to work together for a more peaceful, just and sustainable world for ALL."

The National Union of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers is urging thousands of schools to show their support by singing "No Words Will Stop us Singing".
