On Sunday 1st September 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Piazza Garibaldi in Menaggio, the usual appointment with the "Second-hand book market" organised by the "In Viaggio" Association and the Coordinamento Comasco per la Pace.
The profit will be entirely donated to Operazione Colomba, Corpo Non Violento di Pace of the Ass. Papa Giovanni XXIII.
Operazione Colomba was born in 1992 from the desire of some volunteers and conscientious objectors of the Pope John XXIII Community, to concretely live nonviolence in war zones.
Initially it operated in the former Yugoslavia where it helped to bring together families divided on different fronts, protect (disarmed) minorities, create spaces for meeting, dialogue and peaceful coexistence.
The experience gained in the field has led Operation Dove over the years to open stable presences in numerous conflicts around the world, from the Balkans to Latin America, from the Caucasus to Africa, from the Middle East to the Far East involving, among volunteers and conscientious objectors, over 2,000 people.
From 1992 to the present day, Operazione Colomba has also established important collaborative relationships with National and International Bodies and Institutions (United Nations, European Union...), numerous Human Rights Centres and NGOs, representatives of Churches, Associations and local groups.
