The following has been e mailed to hundreds and thousands all over
the world to activate the first simultaneous Chalk4Peace (scroll down)

People young and old from all over the world are being activated to
participate in this GLOBAL Art/Peace project taking place in
communities everywhere Sept 16/17th

This effort follows the success of smaller localized Chalk4Peace
events in London since 2003
and in various locations around the world notably @ The Museum of
Modern ARF

It is hoped that at least one million people will participate in this
global outpouring of the heart.

Individuals are encouraged to act alone or to organise groups in
their local community to chalk on the pavements/sidewalks and
contribute to this global tapestry up to the weekend of September
16/17 and beyond.

"Chalk4Peace represents a new direction in activism. It requires no
organisation other that the communication of the idea - it is self
organising, using the streets as a form of media that is fully
accessible to the general public and moved by the enthusiasm of
those who are touched by the concept - Chalk is readily available
every where! - It harmless, temporary, yet offers a unique way to
contribute to the global conversation that shapes our culture".



Global Chalk4Peace - Sept 16/17th

Mission Possible - "Our World Working For ALL of Us"

We CAN Make THE Difference!

ON THE WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 16 & 17th Chalk4Peace!
On the pavements and sidewalks of our towns and cities

You are invited to Take Action! - ("Scroll down for WHAT CAN YOU DO?")

To Participate in this GLOBAL outpouring of public art. Where we make
our personal statements for peace on the pavements and sidewalks of
our cities all over our world.


All around the globe, together we are decorating, dedicating and
declaring, in deep sincerity our collective call for peace.

Chalk4Peace is about our empowerment. We The People, our global
culture, all people everywhere and our common desire to live in peace.

The Chalk4Peace project has already transformed the experience of
thousands of people attending demonstrations for peace all over the
world during the past 3 years. Chalk4Peace is both a tool and a
conduit for non violent public self expression,
and participation in the growing global movement for peace.

Chalk4Peace is an opportunity for all of us of all ages to make our
feelings known, especially the young, whose future is in dire jeopardy
as our global village falls faster and faster into the fear breeding
fear breeding fear spiral.

Our global culture is teetering on the edge of extinction.

No 1 person alone can turn this around, but together WE CAN!

"The Structure of world peace cannot be the work of one man, one
party,or one nation. It must be a peace which rests on the cooperative
effort of the whole world"
... Eleanor Roosevelt

Our basic human instincts drive us to seek safety. This is what this
chaos is all about.Our essential human survival instincts are acting
out of context with the wider global cultural need resulting in
mistrust, fear and conflict.

Everywhere the media is bombarding us with WAR TALK, distractions and
negative belief patterns that encourage us to believe that the future
of our world is out of our hands entirely.

One place we still have communal access to, is OUR STREETS.

We can balance our GLOBAL CONVERSATION with collective self-expression

Chalk4Peace is one step, a catalyst that can transform our global
conversation as
we the people, en masse make our statement that is our common
aspiration for peace.


Carry some chalk with you, invite a friend with you, to chalk
inspirations on the pavement whenever and wherever you fancy.

Chalk is harmless, cheap and washes away within a few days.

Especially PARTICIPATE in the Sept 16 - 17th

Make it happen in your Community!

(Scroll down for "WHAT CAN YOU DO?")

Lets us turn our grey streets into a living river of colour and
possibility -
With poetry, hearts, peace symbols, empowering statements, also
expressions of our frustrations and despair.

All will be seen for several days by thousands of people, then as they
are washed away by the elements WE CAN CONTINUE to find fresh places
to Chalk4Peace.

We don't need to be an artist to Chalk4Peace. Every statement, however
small or large becomes part of the amazing tapestry that is our
global future.

This unique event conceivably, could be the largest of its kind in
modern history.
It is a global effort that is happening.

We The People are spreading the word and making the effort to be a
part of
this huge creative endeavour to bring Peace back into the equation.

It is our goal for at least one million or more of us to participate
with this
sidewalk/pavement chalk extravaganza, at thousands of locations, in as
many countries, cities and towns around the world as is possible.

How did Chalk4Peace begin?
"Message in a bottle"

for Chalk4Peace locations in America

Its time for us to move beyond the "No to War" position and come
"Saying Yes2Peace"

"If we don't create our future, our past will create it for us"
Lets skip the war bit and just get to the peace"¦

Greet someone new today,
look into their eyes, smile, say hello,
shake their hand ...
