The Japanese Peace Bell is a United Nations peace symbol. Cast on November 24, 1952, it was an official gift of the Japanese people to the United Nations on June 8, 1954. The symbolic bell of peace was donated by Japan  to  the United Nations  at a  time when Japan had not yet been officially

admitted to the United Nations.  The Japanese Peace Bell

was presented to the United Nations by the

United Nations Association of Japan.

HAS THE WORLD

FORGOTTEN

ABOUT

PEACE?!

2022 THEME:  End racism. Build peace.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres

2022 Message

Video Courtesy, United Nations

Peace is a noble and necessary pursuit, and the only

practical pathway to a better, fairer world for

all people. Yet in too many places, in

too many contexts, we are

failing the cause of peace.

The theme of this year’s International Day of Peace —

“End Racism. Build Peace.” — reminds us of

the many ways racism poisons people’s

hearts and minds and erodes

the peace we all seek.

Racism robs people of their rights and dignity.

It inflames inequalities and mistrust. And

it pushes people apart, at a time when

we should be coming together, as

one human family, to

repair our fractured world.

Instead of fighting each other, we should be

working to defeat our true enemies:

racism, poverty, inequality, conflict,

the climate crisis and the

COVID-19 pandemic.

We should tear down structures that sustain

racism, and lift up human rights

movements everywhere.

And we should drown out the vicious

voices of hate speech with a united

and sustained cry for truth,

understanding and mutual respect.

On this important day, a time to observe 24 hours

of non-violence and cease-fire, we renew

our call for all people to do

more than lay down their weapons.

 

We call on them to re-affirm the bonds of

solidarity we share as human beings

and get down to the business of

building a better,

more peaceful world.
