Reclaiming Our Beaches

Nearly 300 Tourists Take Over Bali's Most Popular Beach - Proclaiming "Bali Loves Peace."

(10/8/2005) On Friday, October 7, 2005, less than one week after the heinous bombing of three Bali dining venues, the people of Bali and hundreds of tourists visiting the island "landed" on Bali's famous Kuta Beach reclaiming as their own what only 6 nights before a group of cowardly terrorists had tried to take away.

As shown on balidiscovery.com, hundreds of visitors joined in a largely spontaneous "Bali Loves Peace" event by "occupying" Kuta's white sandy beach to show their love, solidarity and support for the island of Bali.

Nearly 300 tourists from around the world, including Indonesia, Japan, Canada, Malaysia., U.S.A., U.K. and France flocked to the beach where 40 tattoo artists and 38 masseurs provided services without charge throughout the afternoon.

According to observers on the scene, the temporary tattoo artists were kept busy inscribing arms and backs with "Bali Love's Peace" insignias.

While the tattoo only lasts a week, the sentiment expressed is indelible.
