JANUARY 30th – DENIP

The School Day of Non-violence and Peace (DENIP from catalan-valencian-balear: Dia Escolar de la No-violència i la Pau), is a holiday founded by the Spanish poet Lorenzo Vidal Vidal in 1964. It is observed on January 30 or thereabouts every year, on the anniversary of the death of Gandhi. In countries with a Southern Hemisphere school calendar, it can be observed on March 30 or thereabouts. The slogan for the 2009 is “above all, we are friends” (Spanish:”Por encima de todo, somos amigos”).
