Peace Walk – Mars Mira
Sarfraz M Malik – The Cheetham Poet
11th July is a United Nations designated day “Remembering Srebrenica “
The vision of Remembering Srebrenica: is a society free from hatred
Please visit https://www.srebrenica.org.uk/ to learn more about the work of this charitable organisation and to see the testimony of survivors.
To escape danger thousands of residents of Srebrenica fled to a safe haven in Tuzla. Along the way over 8000 were massacred. A horrific atrocity committed on our very own doorstep, Europe! This year marks the 26th Anniversary of this event. Each year many thousands walk for peace from Tuzla to Srebrenica over a period of three days. Covering the 62 miles whilst experiencing the terrain, beautiful views and listening to those that lived through the horror and survived. This annual event is called “Mars Mira” meaning peace march. Individuals and groups around the world mirror this walk.
This year again, my target is to walk the equivalent distance of 62 miles by walking in my beloved Heaton Park.
