We must shift the arms race into a 'peace race.'
|Day of Peace Observance Planned in Malaysia|
Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia - UPF-Malaysia held a planning meeting on July 28 for a celebration of the International Day of Peace in Ipoh.
Armed conflicts rob people of the opportunity to develop, create jobs, safeguard the environment, fight poverty, reduce the risk from disasters, advance social equity, and ensure that everyone has enough to eat. We want a future where natural resources are protected and valued rather than used to finance wars, where children can be educated at school and not recruited into armies, where economic and social inequalities are resolved through dialogue instead of violence. This event was organized to educate and bring public awareness on issues related to peace.
