A large group of singers from a number of choruses in the Mexican city of Hermosillo, Sonora performed a concert for world peace on the evening of Nov. 29, having come together as “Sonora Choruses for Peace” to address “the danger of a general nuclear war that could break out around the Russia-Ukraine conflict and around the new conflict in the Middle East.” In their statement, the Sonora choruses emphasized that “we were inspired to convene this choral movement for peace by the call of various political and religious leaders of the world for all parties involved in the war in Ukraine, the Middle East and other wars to hold peace negotiations now, without preconditions, to dedicate ourselves all to the elimination of poverty and the construction of a new international architecture of security and fair and dignified economic development for all nations.” They added that “the strength of this idea will be to demonstrate that Mexicans can put aside ideologies and political differences to fight for a higher goal: the survival of humanity. This could inspire others to do the same in other cities around the country and the world.”
The concert consisted of Mozart’s Dona Nobis Pacem, Schiller and Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, and Handel’s Canticorum Jubilo.
Zepp-LaRouche sent the following message of greetings:
“Many people around the world are asking themselves: How could it be that we are again, 78 years after the end of World War II, on the verge of a potentially global catastrophe, where the escalation of two regional wars, in Ukraine and in Gaza, can not be excluded? Any such escalation could include the use of thermonuclear weapons, which in all likelihood would lead to a nuclear winter following the use of such weapons, and therefore could end all life on the planet.
