Bombay Peace March
(From Vol. 1, Issue 2, Page 2 October 1987)
About 1500 enthusiastic college boys and girls along with Sarvodaya and other peace workers took out a peace march from the Gandhi Museum (Mani) Bhavan) to Chuchgate in Bombay on August 6th. The marchehs carried placards, 20 feet long bannerss and wore peace badges, T-shirts and aprons inscribed with anti nuclear slongans. The march ended with a demostration followed by a street play outside Churchgate station. An exibition of about 100 posters on ‘Nuclear Disarmament and Peace’ was inaugerated at the Government Law College. An anti-nuclear book, the first of its kind in Marathi was also released on the occasion. Entitled ‘Nuclear Power : Curse not Boon’, it is written by Shri Gangaprasad Agarwal, a veteran Sarvodaya worker from Marathwada. The march received extensive coverage in the Bombay print media.
Bombay Sarvodaya Mandai plans to continue its programme of educating the people on nuclear issues. It recently organized a poster exhibition and a lecture at the Elphinston College. Similar activities are planned for other colleges in the coming days.
