After the UNITY gathering in Israel on May 13 2006 we were asked to honour the anniversary of UNITY DAY.
Without our knowledge in 2007 there were women organising the STANDING WOMEN campaign. A wonderful way to celebrate the anniversary of UNITY DAY.
Standing Women (Prague, Czech Rep)
MAY 10 2009
"Standing Women will stand together across the globe every year on the second Sunday in May at 1 p.m. local time with those in their time zone. Feel free to stand with a different time zone if another hour is more convenient for you.
Please stand with us for five minutes of silence at 1 p.m. your local time on May 10, 2009, in your local park, school yard, gathering place, or any place you deem appropriate, to signify your agreement with the statement below. Please stand at a different hour with a different time zone if 1 p.m. is not your preferred time.We ask you to invite the men who you care about to join you. We ask that you bring bells to ring at 1 p.m. to signify the beginning of the five minutes of silence and to ring again to signify the end of the period of silence. During the silence, please think about what you individually and we collectively can do to attain this world. If you need to sit rather than stand, please feel free to do so. Afterwards, hopefully you and your loved ones can talk together about how we can bring about this world"
