Peace in Palestine and Israel is an important, longstanding campaign issue for Pax Christi both here and internationally. We hear from our partners in the region distressing accounts of deep and worsening injustice, violence and suffering with no end in sight. The World Week for Peace in Palestine and Israel is from 15th-22nd September. We have created a range of useful resources here Please use them to support the struggle for a just peace out of this unbearable conflict.
The World Council of Churches’ theme is Humanity and Equality in God’s Creation. Pax Christi International have issued a statement drawing attention to the inequalities in law: ‘For Palestinians living in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, the assault on their humanity and human rights is constant and pernicious.’
