White Scarf For Peace.

White Scarf For Peace.

A spontaneous war protest has started in Montreal after a popular radio host here announced that Mrs. George W. Bush had cancelled a meeting with a group of women at the White House because several of them planned to attend the meeting with a white scarf round their necks as a silent symbol of their desire for peace.

This symbol had power as it disturbed Mrs. Bush. This story has triggered a grassroots email campaign asking those committed to peace in the world to wear a white scarf. If everyone who disagreed with the war were to wear a white scarf around their neck, tie a white handkerchief to their back-packs, their attach� case, their school bags, white pennants from car antennas, white flags on balconies and hanging in front of houses the world over, would this not be a powerful message to send to our leaders?

Sometimes images and symbols are more powerful than words. If you feel that this idea has any validity, please join the email campaign and pass this on to your network.
