“I call on all warring parties to lay down their weapons and observe a global ceasefire. To them I say: stop the killings and the destruction, and create space for lasting peace.”
– UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
Today is #InternationalDayOfPeace – at EMERGENCY UK we believe in spreading a culture of peace, solidarity, and respect for human rights. We believe that peace comes through not only ending wars, but ending inequality and discrimination. We want a world in which governments guarantee the basic equality of all members of society and the right to medical treatment that is both of a high standard and free of charge.
