IPB releases video highlights of Barcelona peace conference
The International Peace Bureau (IPB), the world’s oldest and largest peace coalition, released a new video of highlights from its recent Peace Congress. Featured speakers include Jeremy Corbyn and Vandana Shiva.
“(Re)imagine the world. Action for peace and justice,” drew more than 2,500 people who took part in the Second IPB World Peace Congress held in Barcelona last October. The Congress was broadcasted on the Internet, and PeaceQuest hosted a workshop at the event.
With COVID-19 receding at the time, over 1,000 people attended the congress in person, while 1,500 attended virtually. Participants came from 126 countries. In Barcelona, activists from 75 countries including South Korea, the United States, Afghanistan, India and Mongolia, were also able to listen to the speeches covering issues such as nuclear disarmament, climate justice, racism and the rights of indigenous peoples.
