Betty Williams Nobel laureate
Williams was born on 22 May 1943 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Her father worked as a butcher and her mother was a house wife.
Betty Williams was drawn into the public arena after witnessing the death of three children on 10 August 1976, when they were hit by a car whose driver, an IRA fugitive named Danny Lennon.
Williams was so moved by the incident that within two days of the tragic event, she had obtained 6,000 signatures on a petition for peace. She co-founded the Women for Peace.
Williams soon organised a peace march to the graves of the slain children, which was attended by 10,000 Protestant and Catholic women. The following week, Williams led another march that concluded successfully without incident – this time with 35,000 participants.
Declaration of the Peace People First Declaration of the Peace People We have a simple message to the world from this movement for Peace. We want to live and love and build a just and peaceful society. We want for our children, as we want for ourselves, our lives at home, at work, and at play to be lives of joy and Peace. We recognise that to build such a society demands dedication, hard work, and courage. We recognise that there are many problems in our society which are a source of conflict and violence. We recognise that every bullet fired and every exploding bomb make that work more difficult. We reject the use of the bomb and the bullet and all the techniques of violence. We dedicate ourselves to working with our neighbours, near and far, day in and day out, to build that peaceful society in which the tragedies we have known are a bad memory and a continuing warning.
