A newly-formed coalition of activists 'Children as Zone of Peace' has announced a 'Ring for Peace' program (Shanti ko Ghanti) on International Peace Day, 21 September. For two minutes, the whole country will echo with the sound of bells. As Radio Nepal broadcasts the noon peals of Ghanta Ghar, everyone will start to ring temple bells, doorbells, whistles, car and motorcycle horns and even bang their pans. "It's a symbolic wake-up call to urge the warring sides to refrain from involving children in conflict," says the coalition. The call came on a week that at least four children were killed in bomb blasts or in crossfire. The UN has declared 2001-2010 as the international decade for a culture of peace and non-violence for children.
