In remembrance of Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday, today marks the International Day of Non-Violence. The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution in 2007 to mark October 2nd as the day to reaffirm “ ‘the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence’ and the desire ‘to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence.’ ”

This year’s Non-Violence Day is being celebrated in light of the ongoing protests in Hong Kong. The birthplace of Gandhi, India is celebrating the day with Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Clean India’ campaign.
