Peace Boat is a Japan-based international
non-government and non-profit organisation that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment. Peace Boat is visiting Sydney on 15-16 April as part of its 108-day 60th Global Voyage for Peace.
While in Sydney, Peace Boat is joining with the Sydney Peace Foundation, the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney, and Macquarie University’s Centre for Middle Eastern Studies to hold a 2-DAY CONFERENCE at Sydney’s Customs House called "IRAQ NEVER AGAIN: Ending War Building Peace." Anyone interested in attending the conference should register online at http://www.usyd.edu.au/neveragain
The conference and festival will mark the milestones of the 5th Anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, the 20th Birthday of CPACS and the 25th Anniversary of Peace Boat.
