ABOUT THE GATHERING
Peace News Winter Gathering 2010 has developed out of Peace News Summer Camp 2009 (www.peacenewscamp.info), which created a real sense of liberation for participants. The Gathering is a space of mutual respect in which activists from different groups and movements, who hold diverse views on fundamental issues, can share experiences, information and insights – and can learn more about each other.
