The School Day of Non-violence and Peace (or DENIP, acronym from Catalan-Balearic: Dia Escolar de la No-violència i la Pau), is an observance founded by the Spanish poet Llorenç Vidal Vidal in Majorca in 1964 as a starting point and support for a pacifying and non-violent education of a permanent character. Celebrated on January 30 or thereabouts every year, on the anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi, in schools all over the world.
Our school's library is devoting this whole week to the celebration of peace, reading texts and listening to songs, among other activities. The library's blog will have a new post each day of this week with a song related to peace and human rights. ClickOnEnglish will share those which have songs in English.
Today's the first one, with a song by British singer Phil Collins "ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE". The song is about homeless people, an issue which is relevant in Spain nowadays as many people are losing their houses because of the economic crisis. Peace cannot be reached without social justice.
