The Northeasterly Choir (above) sings at the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies' Anzac Day peace ceremony in Dunedin as (at left) Marta Guerra, of Dunedin, and Isla Verdonk-Brough (10), of Rotorua, look on yesterday.

About 125 people attended the ceremony at the peace pole on the museum reserve, at which placards exhorted attendees to ``honour the war dead by ending war''.

Guest speaker Elizabeth Duke told attendees the gathering was to grieve for all who had suffered from war and conflict.

It was also to honour those who had worked for peace and social justice, resisted war and violence and committed to building a just and peaceful world.
