A festive mood prevailed at the Women’s Peace March, one of three peace rallies held in the city this weekend, where several hundred women belonging to various women’s organizations showed up wearing blue shirts emblazoned with the peace symbol and a slogan ‘No Women, No Peace.’

While singing songs, they walked from Kabar Aye Pagoda Road in central Rangoon to Kandawgyi Lake Park, where a stage had been prepared for several performances of female singers and poets, all of whom had a message of peace and called for an end to violence in Burma.
