Norwich Peace Camp & Peace Cycle condemns all forms of terrorism

Posted on | June 7, 2017 | No Comments

Norwich Peace Camp & Peace Cycle condemns all forms of terrorism no matter how planned or executed.
Every human life is precious especially of those who are innocent.
We do not however think that war can be the solution or ever bring the wanton disregard for what is sacred to an end. Quite the opposite, it only exacerbates the cycle of violence and lends justification to what is unjustifiable.
Peace and Justice have to be established and a world economy not geared to violence but which benefits all equally not just the few. As a world community we have the means and resources to end war forever.

Ending the bombing

Posted on | May 25, 2017 | No Comments

Peace Camp agreed many years ago that the bombing and killing has to stop
The Peace Cycle maxim is
“End the Cycle of Violence, join the Cycle of Peace”
violence breeds violence, hatred breeds hatred
and bombing can never solve this or bring it to an end
The war machine has no regard for human life
and bombs are always indiscriminate
the outcome is that people die
and nothing whatever is resolved
Norwich Peace Camp & Peace Cycle condemns all bombing
and all loss of civilian life
no matter how caused
there has to be agreement that this is not the way to rule or govern the world

and all the big powers have to accept this
as well as those who try to overcome them

Dear Friends,
This is just a gentle reminder of the UNA LunchBox talk this coming Friday 19th May, at 1pm, in the Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane Norwich NR2 1EW.
 
The speaker is Karl Lam and he will talk about “Ending the Legacy of Divide and Rule”.
Karl has worked as a physicist and an engineer for thirty years and is now the Technical Director of Micro-Biotics Limited.  He stood for parliament as an independent in 1997, under the banner “Building a Fair Society”.
 
Karl’s talk should be very interesting and I hope you will be able to come along and hear it – at 1pm on Friday 19th May.
 
Kind Regards,

In the Shadow of Balfour
On Wednesday 17th May 2017 at 7pm
Ben Jamal, Director of National PSC will be speaking at
Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Central Norwich
 
Ben  will discuss how the Balfour declaration set the frame for Palestinian dispossession in the Nakba of 1948 and what is required from the British government now to fulfil its moral and legal responsibilities towards the Palestinian people.
 
Balfour initiated a policy of British support for Israel which continues to this very day, to the detriment of the occupied Palestinians of the West Bank and the five million Palestinian refugees living largely in warrens of poverty around the Middle East, including Israeli-besieged Gaza. No pride there, then!

VIGIL TO REMEMBER CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS TO
WAR
HAY HILL, NORWICH, MONDAY, MAY 15
TH
, 12-1PM
Whatever we may think about the wisdom of ghting wars as an
answer to disagreements between nations, we must acknowledge
the courage of many who fought in them. Each November, on
Remembrance Sunday, ceremonies are held to honour that bravery.
It takes great courage too to refuse to ght if you are convinced that
war is wrong, knowing that you risk disgrace, imprisonment, even
execution. And so, every year since 1982, 15th May has marked
International Conscientious Objectors’’ Day – commemorating those
who have resisted and who continue to resist war, especially by
refusing military service. Read more
