Hundreds Take Part In Peace March

About 300 people walking down the middle of King Street as part of a peace march against racial discrimination.

Organizer Diane Govindsamy tells CHSJ News the march is about promoting equality for all, including those in the gay, lesbian, and transgendered community.

Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Racism, which was declared by the U.N. in 1966 after 69 people were killed in South Africa during a peaceful demonstration against apartheid.
