Peace Pigeon is in Kuşadası
July 7, 2021
Kuşadası Municipality has joined Mayors for Peace as the 17th member city from Turkey. After becoming a member of the network, Kuşadası Municipality once again put its signature onto an exemplary practice. In the 4th year of the adoption of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, Kuşadası Municipality started to display the Mayors for Peace logo, which consists of green and white colours with pigeon symbol, on the digital screen installed on the entrance of the municipal service building to draw attention to the establishment of permanent peace in the world.
Mayor of Kuşadası Ömer Günel stated; “Our aim is to continue working to follow the footsteps of the Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and to continue his 'Peace at Home, Peace in the World' principle. For this purpose, we aim to draw the attention of our citizens to this important global issue by displaying the logo of Mayors for Peace for a day in front of our City Hall on July 7, the day the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons was adopted. We will ensure to achieve the complete elimination of nuclear weapons, prevent the tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be repeated, and create intercity solidarity that transcends national borders and ideological differences."
