April 13 – onwards

In the context of the GDAMS, Movimiento de Educadores por la Paz (Movement of Educators for Peace) promoted a campaign for global peace in Uruguay, together with the National Convention of Workers and the Uruguayan Federation of Teachers & Workers of Primary Education. The campaign aimed to raise awareness about the issue of military expenditure, calling instead for a culture of peace and human rights. The Movement published an article in the magazine Quehacer Educativo (you can read it here – in Spanish), dedicated to educators of the primary and initial levels, addressing the GCOMS’s message and mission. In addition, the Uruguayan organization was also involved in promoting the short film “Alto El Juego”, from the film-maker Walter Tournier, which speaks against weapons.
