KUALA LUMPUR: Members of the Federal Territory 4B Youth Movement began a campaign for peace at the Kota Raya shopping complex at Jalan Tun Perak yesterday.
Please sign up if you support peace and not war, invited the group of 15 volunteers to members of the public.
The volunteers set up a table, and put up posters and banners asking for Malaysians support to urge the United States not to go to war against Iraq.
Many signed up, saying simply that there was no need for war against Iraq while others said there should be a peaceful solution to the crisis.
Canadian tourist Chris Webb, 30, said he was against any kind of forceful act, which would cause the deaths of innocent civilians.
The advisor of the Federal Territory 4B Youth Movement, Norman Hassan said they hoped to get 15,000 signatures by next month when Malaysia hosts the 13th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit.
Peace Malaysia, a coalition of over 230 NGOs, is collecting one million signatures to be presented at the summit.
