2008 Vigil

On the International Day of Peace, declared by the United Nations, hundreds of all faiths and cultures gathered on the steps between Victoria Park and the University of Sydney to make a united call for peace.
Organised by the Ministry for Peace Australia, the 24hr vigil commenced at midnight 20th September with a candlelight procession to carry the World Peace Flame to its cauldron where it remained lit for the duration of the peace celebrations. An elder of the Gadigal Tribe then performed a traditional Smoking Ceremony to commence the vigil.
