30th Anniversary of the Berlin Rally

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

From 2 to 8 August 1987, several thousand members of the Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles (CARP) from around the world attended the Fourth World CARP Convention, held in Berlin, Germany. In the midst of the divided city, CARP members called for the removal of the infamous Berlin Wall – an ugly symbol of Cold War divisions.

This event occurred just two years after True Father organised, from Danbury prison, the Second International Congress of the Professors World Peace Academy, which met in August 1985 in Geneva, Switzerland, under the title “The Fall of the Soviet Union: Prospects for Transition to a Post-Soviet World.” Two years after the Berlin Rally, in November 1989 the Berlin Wall was breached, and by October 1990 Germany had become one nation again, with the Soviet Union finally collapsing in December 1991.

A highlight of the 1987 Berlin Rally was a march by 2,000 CARP members to the Berlin Wall led by World CARP President Hyo Jin Moon, who prayed passionately for its removal and the end of a divided world. Few would have predicted that events would move so rapidly over the next few years and that the world would change so dramatically. However, all these events were in line with the predictions of True Parents, when, after the Washington Monument Rally in September 1976, True Father gave the order “Must go, Moscow!”

 

On Friday and Saturday, 4 and 5 August, 2017, we will commemorate the 30th anniversary of that historic Berlin Rally and recall the spirit and events of those days in1987. True Mother has asked Yeon Ah Nim, the beloved wife of Hyo Jin Nim and president of Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) International, to participate in the commemoration. For this historic celebration she will be accompanied by her children and will deliver a message on behalf of True Parents.

 

I would like to encourage brothers and sisters from throughout Europe to come to Berlin to celebrate this special event. It will be a great opportunity to recall how True Parents have been at the forefront of the historic changes that took place at the end of the 20th century. It will be particularly inspiring if many of our younger generation can participate in this event and become acquainted with our own history as well as understanding the history-making changes that took place, based on True Parents’ 40-year indemnity course, resulting in the collapse of the communist world.
