Small World March in Limburg

Small World March in Limburg

Photographer:Fotograaf: Loraine Bodewes Fotografie

Friday 2 October: the anniversary of Gandhi’s birth and the day that the World March for Peace and Nonviolence started in New Zealand. The international organisation World Without Wars has brought a base team together, made up of more than 100 people, who will march 160,000 kilometres in three months – an impossible goal for anyone, so they’ll use planes, trains and boats. The organisation expects thousands of other people to march through places not passed by the base team.

And indeed, in Limburg, five students and Catholic chaplain Marianne Boselie took part in a two-day walking tour, initiated by the ecumenical student chaplaincy Tafelstraat 13. On the first day, the group walked from Maastricht to Schimmert; the next day from Schimmert to Sittard. The distance was about 33 kilometres. Boselie: “We walked with the idea of peace in our hearts and discussed things we feel angry about and the way we see the world.”
