In Erbil, the Al-Taleaa Kurdistan Children’s organization put on a pubic party in the Al-Menara Park. At the party, children performed traditional Kurdish dances and put on a circus show. The children received booklets about Gandhi and the Al-Mesalla Center of Erbil. The children then released balloons to the Erbil sky with messages of peace and nonviolence. The event was covered by satellite and local channels.
