> The idea is to have a rolling wave of candlelight in every country
> across the planet. In Amsterdam, we will stand together with our
> friends from the Irak Platform on Dam Square. The website given
> below
> lists other places where people will gather including The Hague,
> Utrecht, Eindhoven and some smaller towns. We hope you can join

> Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Reverend Robert Edgar, and other
> religious
> leaders call for candlelight vigils around the world on march 16th to
> say yes to peace -- and no to war with Iraq. So far, 2157 vigils have
> been scheduled in 85 countries. The next few Web pages will
> connect
> you with a candlelight vigil in your area or allow you to schedule a
> new vigil.
> 
> It appears that the Bush administration will fail to win Security
> Council support for war, and world public opinion has been a key
> part
> of this. Help keep up the pressure by attending, or scheduling, a
> candlelight vigil on Sunday in your area. MoveOn.org and the Win
> Without War coalition, together with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and
> many
> faith-based organizations, are calling for this global vigil -- and we
> need your help.
> 
> Beginning in New Zealand, this will be a rolling wave of candlelight
> gatherings that will quickly cross the globe. It's up to you to make
> this happen. Today we are asking individuals, like you, to organize a
> vigil in each community. We're hoping that thousands of small
> groups
> around the world will be inspired to come together and stand for
> peace. It's time for the world to come together in this moment of
> darkness and rekindle the light of reason -- and of hope. It's time to
> renew our commitment to building a positive world for our children.
> 
> With your help, we will see the first candlelight vigil to sweep
> around the globe on the evening of March 16th. Together, we will
> lead
> the nations of the world away from an unnecessary war and toward
> a
> peaceful and prosperous future.
> 
> This is a key moment in history. Be a part of it.
