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:

Norwich Peace Camp & Peace Cycle Event 2013

Posted on | June 15, 2013 | No Comments

June 22, 2013
9:00 amto4:00 pm

The 8th annual NPC&PC event passed off successfully again this year

with several new dimensions including enhanced story telling and the Norwich Community Choir, Visions for change and Friends of the Earth inclusion for the first time. We also had the Climate Wars ? workshop/discussion
Again the library excelled with peace poetry for all.

For the first time also all the trays for making gardens by children at Thorpe Gardening Club were used up.

Although this is primarily an awareness event we did also manage to raise well over £400 for charity through refreshments, sale of olive wood items, the charity auction and donations for peace balloons.
This will go to St Martin’s Housing Trust for the homeless, the Phoenix Mile Cross Children’s Project, the Gaza Trauma Centre and a charity in Bethlehem.
We also sold over £200 worth of Palestinian products.
Thanks are owed once again to the Forum Trust for hosting this unique local event and also City Council Civic Office for the  kind attendance of the Mayor of Norwich.

Above all thanks are owed to all those who came along to support this event by visiting and taking part in one way or another.
All are welcome to come again next year when we plan to hold the event God willing on June 7th.

End the War on Terror

Posted on | October 5, 2013 | No Comments

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

World War One Centenary

Posted on | December 15, 2013 | No Comments

with the centenary of the commencement of WWl  coming up very soon

and in recognition of those who want to take this as an excuse to celebrate nationalism and Britishness

the very things that got us into World Wars one and two

NPC&PC calls on people to remember the ‘War to end all wars’ otherwise

and to remember that those words were a binding promise

meaning never again…

NPC&PC honours the life of Tony Benn and his passing

Update

Tony Benn’s funeral March 27th at St Margaret’s Church Westminster

Tony Benn President of the Stop the War Coalition has died at home

A remarkable man who achieved wonderful things and was loved by many
the following is a statement from NSTWC

Tony Benn will be profoundly missed from the platform of Stop the War
Rallies and at the head of protest marches against misguided government
decisions, most notably the attacks on Afghanistan, the war on Iraq and
the sabre rattling towards Iran.
Benn was also an outspoken opponent of many of the government’s policies
(whether Conservative, Liberal or New Labour) on the privatisation of
public sector services affecting transport, health and education.
Perhaps the greatest tribute we can pay him is to continue his work as
campaigner for peace and social justice.
Tony Benn came to Norwich in March 2007 and spoke to a packed St Andrews
Hall. His main thrust was the build-up of anti Iranian sentiment and he
reminded the audience of the false claims of WMD that were used as a
pretext to attack Iraq, which led to the loss of hundreds of thousands of
lives and that 80 percent of Iraqi people wanted the troops out. He
concluded to rousing applause saying that the anti war movement would
succeed but that the struggle would be long and difficult. He will be
sorely missed.

10:30 amto12:00 pm
Dear Friends
How time flies and now it is time again to tell you that the next UNA Saturday talk is on 15th March in The Curve at the Forum at 11oc am.
The speaker will be Dr Ian Fairlie, an independent consultant on radiation in the environment, and his title will be “Does Nuclear Energy Provide an Answer to Global Warming?” As we await a new generation of nuclear power stations in Britain, this is a very topical and important question at the moment.
Dr Fairlie was  the scientific  Secretariat to the UK Government’s Committee Examining Radiation Risks of Internal Emitters (www.cerrie.org ). He is also a consultant to the European Parliament, WHO, IPPNW and local authorities.
Do try to come to this important talk.
best wishes,
Marguerite
