Why does Peace Lotus Day matter?

On April 30th 1975, the Fall of Saigon left the world reeling: the US Imperialist machine was defeated by the colonised peoples in Vietnam 🇻🇳, securing an end to the foreign destruction of their homes.

Across April we commemorate Peace Lotus Internationalist Solidarity Month of Anti-War Resistance, a month to visibilise just peace actors and re-weave our peoples’ solidarity towards anti-war resistance.

 

The war of the elites against all peoples is a WAR ON LIFE: the genocidal and ecocidal projects are clear for all to see. It is time to come together and organise for Just Peace now.

The genocidal intent of organised international fascist imperialism is clear for all to see. Communities of resistance across the world come together in April to confront imperialist attempts to erase our peoples’ histories of victory for just peace.

Where does Peace Lotus Day come from?

Every April, we come together glocally led by communities in Asia resisting imperialism, like the Extinction Rebellion Affinity Network of Asia (XRANA), who voluntarily take Environmental Justice work as their mission because of knowing it is our duty of conscience.

Peace Lotus is one of the three key annual dates of Internationalist Solidarity Glocalization Commemorations of the Extinction Rebellion Internationalist Solidarity Network (XRISN) and the Majority World Internationalist Solidarity Coordination Council of Communities of Resistance (MWISCCCOR).

Organizationally spearheaded conjointly by Vidya Safari Moksha (VSM), the Grassroots Women’s Internationalist Solidarity Action Network (GWISAN), and Planet Repairs Youth Positive Action Campaign (PRYPAC), all based in India, South East Asia, as well as the Grassroots South-North Internationalist Forum (GRASSNIF) based in Ghana, West Afrika, with the facilitation of the XR Affinity Network of Asia (XRANA), supported by XRISN.

 

We are highlighting amongst the supporters in addition to XRISN, the Stop the Maangamizi We Charge Genocide/Ecocide Campaign, MWISCCCOR and XR-Being the Change Affinity Network, and becuase of its relevant Planet Repairs educational importance, it is being included amongst the key activities of PRALER.
