The Genocide Prevention Ritual
When: Throughout April 2009
Where: N/A, Japan
Rituals to prevent genocide happening worldwide throughout April
Event Details: April has the unfortunate privilege of having no less than six dates associated with historical atrocities, so it has been declared Genocide Prevention Month. Events are happening worldwide. So the group Polytheist Charity is organizing a Genocide Prevention Ritual. This is an interfaith event consisting of numerous rituals happening worldwide throughout the month of April. The ritual itself is quite simple, and can be incorporated into various worship styles, or done on its own. It can be done in a group or alone. There are three phases:
1. Time to remember - an opportunity to remember tragedies past and those lost
2. Time to awaken - an opportunity to bring attention to current areas of concern for atrocities happening right now
3. Time to act - a symbolic act: an arrangement of flowers--all of one kind--are displayed and then ritually cut down to represent the wholesale slaughter of a people. This is followed by a moment of silence and a committment to never allow this to happen again.
A crucial 4th step is making intentions concrete. We hope to do this by raising awareness and providing opportunities to donate to worthy charities. We also have a top ten list of things you can do right now to prevent genocide (donating is ony one!) .
The ritual will be performed at the Trillium festival in Virginia. We're hoping to get numerous other groups and solitaries participating as well, including Pagans, pantheists, ADF Druids, Unitarian Universalists, Hellenics, and more. So if you're interested, please check out the web site. It has everything you need to get started.
