(10/14/2006)

On Thursday, October 12, 2006, thousands of local and foreign visitors gathered to pray and remember the 202 people who died in the heartless attack on two Bali night spots 4 years before to the day.

A 14,000 meter long piece of white cloth was stretched from Jimbaran to Kuta, symbolically joining the four terrorist targets of 2002 and 2005, while demonstrating the people of Bali's undying commitment to peace.

Speaking to the Press, Ida Bagus Anom, a local activist said: "In the months following the bombings, the Balinese and their friends showed exemplary emotional restraint and an equally commendable non-violent response to the brutal violence. We want to remind the world and ourselves of the nobility of such restraint and response."

The commemoration began shortly after midnight heralding in October 12th as the cloth was initially unfurled at the Menega Café on Jimbaran beach, site of the October 1, 2005 attack. From there the cloth was opened and walked the 14 kilometers past Bali's airport, past the former site of Raja’s Restaurant in Kuta to the "Ground Zero" monument marking the former location of the Sari Club and Paddy’s Bar.

Speaking at the commemorative ceremony, Australia's Ambassador to Indonesia, H.E. Bill Farmer told the mourners attending the Bali ceremonies: "We will not allow terrorists to spread disorder and dismay to drive people, faiths and neighbors apart. They have failed utterly and they will not succeed."

He continued: "The hunt for those responsible will continue, and authorities will ensure they are brought to justice." 3 of the perpetrators behind the 2002 bombing have been convicted and are awaiting execution while scores of others have been sentenced to terms in prison.
