Give Peace a Chance

20/09/2018

The 21st of September marks the International Day of Peace. It is a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.

In 2003 Bush Radio started its “Bush against War” campaign, at the time the United States government and its allies issued an ultimatum to Iraq around the issue of weapons of mass destruction. Bush Radio held various protests and “pavement broadcasts” encouraging a peaceful resolution. Unfortunately what is now known as the “Iraq Conflict” is still ongoing.

We at Bush Radio continue to encourage peaceful resolutions, but we can’t just hope, we encourage all listeners and supporters to “Listen, engage and do!” around all conflicts.

*The audio in the clip is taken from our original ultimatum in 2003 – the announcement is voiced by the late Zane Ibrahim and the remixed version of the anti-war song – Give peace a chance by John Lennon, features the voices of Ready D, Godessa and the young people from our Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW)
*Pics sourced from the Bushradio Picture archive
*The conflict is also known as the War in Iraq, the Occupation of Iraq, the Second Gulf War, and Gulf War II. The period of the war lasting from 2003 to 2010 was referred to as Operation Iraqi Freedom by the United States military.
