The Vigil for International Peace is a transformational, grassroots
effort dedicated to promulgate peace through participation in art,
song, dance, music, prayer and ceremony. The purpose of this Vigil is
to awaken humanity to harmony and peace through the power of intent
and celebration. Our vision is to heal and bridge our lives and
communities to achieve divinity alignment and recognize the oneness
Susana Bastarrica, founder organizer, has been instrumental in
expanding the vision of the Peace Vigil each year, this being
reflected in the sheer number of international artists participating
to make each event unique and vibrant.
In its 7th year, The Vigil for International Peace was inspired by
The United Nations 2001 resolution 55/282 designating September 21st
of each year as an "International Day of Peace" and to have the
entire World observe a full day of "global ceasefire and nonviolence."
United Nations Resolution 55/282
In 1981 the United Nations General Assembly passed resolution 36/67
declaring an International Day of Peace. In 2001, the United Nations
General Assembly adopted a new resolution 55/282 stating that
starting in 2002, the International Day of Peace should be observed
on 21 September each year.
Resolution 55/282: "Declares that the International Day of Peace
shall henceforth be observed as a day of global ceasefire and
non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honour a
cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day. The Assembly
invited all Member States, organizations of the United Nations
system, regional and non-governmental organizations and individuals
to commemorate the Day in an appropriate manner, including through
education and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United
Nations in establishing a global ceasefire.
