Sydney plays host to world march for peace

Rain and a smaller than expected crowd failed to dampen the spirits of committed peace activists who gathered at Bondi Beach on October 4. On the day Sydney was host to a leg of the 160,000 kilometre global march for peace, organised by World Without Wars.

The word 'peace' was written in large bold lettering on Bondi's world famous stretch of sand. The march has been endorsed by prominent figures such as the Dalai Lama, Jane Fonda, Martin Sheen and Archbishop Desmond Tutu . The next leg of the march is in Manila.
