Prescott says “there will be politicians who will use the deaths in Paris, just as they did after 9/11, to push an agenda of greater military intervention in the Middle East” but “Western intervention never helps…..it makes matters so much worse”. It is like “pouring petrol on the fires of the Middle East unrest”

Peace One Day

Monday, September 21
United Nations International Day of Peace

Theme: Who will you make peace with?

Norwich Quakers and others affiliated to Norwich Peace Camp invite all to join them in marking this annual day of peacemaking and hope for peace on earth.
at the bottom of Hay Hill by Norwich Market
with Banners, Information Stall and Leafleting

The aim of Peace One Day is to start with just one day in the year when there is no war or violence anywhere in the world. People can use that day to think how the causes of war can be eradicated and how conflicts can be solved without violence. Then, one day at a time, we can all begin building a world without war for every day.

There have been tangible results from what has happened on previous September 21sts. Ceasefires have enabled food drops in famine areas of Africa and vaccination against polio for children across Afghanistan. There have been themed sporting events and celebrations around the world. The 2012 Peace One Day Report found that approximately 280 million people in 198 countries were aware of Peace Day 2012 – 4% of the world’s population. In 2014 more than one billion people were exposed to Peace Day messages through activities ranging from concerts to prayer groups. Across the world 610 million people were aware of Peace Day, with a major increase in Africa, particularly the Great Lakes region, where there will be a large Peace One Day Celebration in Kigali this year.

Momentous Decision at UN

Posted on | December 1, 2012 | No Comments

On Wednesday 28th November 2012 the UN General Assembly voted by 134 in favour to 9 against with 41 abstensions to accept Palestine’s application for non-member observer status at to the UN.

This could be the first step after the declaration of a truce and ceasfire for Gaza to re-initiate  negotiations on the basis of full recognition of the rights of Palestine and all Palestinians and bring peace to Jerusalem and all the land around it for all people who wish to live there in peace as well.

Wrongful detention and imprisonment of children

Posted on | December 22, 2012 | No Comments

The wrongful arrest and detention of Palestinian children has a long history and is contrary to all UN, EU, UK and international law and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

All children as we all know are protected by law and this right cannot and should not be taken away from them.

There is an online petition about this which you can visit and sign if you wish at:

End the War on Terror

12:00 amto11:00 pm

Monday 7th October marks the beginning of  ‘Operation Enduring Freedom’ which was supposed to liberate Afghanistan

it has endured longer than WWl and WWll put together and brought no freedom
Quite the opposite it has brought death, destruction, misery and poverty to millions of Afghans, millions of whom are also refugess, even in their own country.

It has also resulted in many US and British servicemen’s deaths and injury

and achieved nothing good whatsoever at an astronomical price as well

All around the world people are calling for an end to this unjust war and all the wars enacted in the name of the War on terror

on this day please spare a thought for the Afghanis who were drawn into this through no fault of their own

Yet again Gaza is under attack

those who killed the youths should be brought to justice

it is no excuse for this murderous collective punishment

please come to support this peaceful rally
There will also be a big march in London and in many cities around the world

Where Should The Birds Fly

Posted on | October 22, 2014 | No Comments

October 27, 2014
7:00 pmto9:00 pm

The Israeli- Palestine conflict is normally presented in the western media through Israeli eyes, while Palestinian spokespeople are largely absent. Next Monday 27th October, 7pm, at the Forum in The Curve, Millennium Plain, Central Norwich there will be a free showing of the first film about Gaza made by Palestinians living the reality of Israel’s siege and blockade of this tiny enclave.

Where Should The Birds Fly is the story of two young women, survivors of Israel’s Operation Cast Lead – the horrific Israeli invasion and bombardment of Gaza in December 2008 and January 2009. Mona Samouni, now 12 years old and the filmmaker, Fida Qishta, now 27, represent the spirit and future of Palestinians.

The film is a visual documentation of the Goldstone Report, the result of the fact finding team set-up by the United Nations. But it is so much more.  It reveals the strength and hope, the humanity and humour that flourishes among the people of Gaza. Few films document so powerfully and personally the impact of modern warfare and sanctions on a civilian population.

All are welcome to attend. Admission is free. There will be a voluntary collection, the proceeds of which will go to assist the film-maker with the production costs of the film.

Admission free, voluntary collection

The public showing will be followed by a question and answer session with the producer, Lia Tarachansky.

When the Israeli government tried to silence history, a light was shed on the nation’s biggest taboo. This is the story of those who tried to erase Palestine, creating an Israeli landscape of denial.

Former West Bank settler Lia Tarachansky looks at Israelis’ collective amnesia of the fateful events of 1948 when the state of Israel was born and most of the Palestinians became refugees.

As a former Israelii settler, Lia was able to obtain interviews with settlers that would, in all probability, be denied to Palestinian film makers.
This is an excellent opportunity to see a unique film and to question the film producer

“The Complexity of the International Food Trade Network.”

Posted on | September 13, 2015 | No Comments

September 18, 2015
1:00 pmto2:00 pm

Professor Baranyi’s talk will be in the Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich NR2 1EW. The talk will be at 1pm on Friday 18th September 2015.

Dear Friends,

Our Speaker for September is Professor Jozef Baranyi from the Institute of Food Research in Norwich.
He joined the Institute of Food Research in 1990. As an internationally renowned bacteriologist, Professor Baranyi is well-placed to tell us of the problems that lie in preventing food poisoning outbreaks in a world food trading system probably designed more for profit than for health. He will have suggestions to make about how the UN can help to reorganise the food trade on a safer and more secure basis.

The title of Professor Baranyi’s talk is : “The Complexity of the International Food Trade Network.”

With demand for food to increase by 50% by 2030, the current global food distribution system compromises food tracebility, which has an impact on its chemical and microbiological safety. Read more

This is a powerful film by Yasmine Perni. For more than 60 years the Palestinians, Christians and Muslims have suffered displacement, expulsion, wars, occupation and oppression.
The voices of Palestinian Christians have often been drowned out. Have they fared any better than Palestinian Muslims? This is their story, in their own voices, from the Nakba of 1948 until today.
