Dear Friends,

This is a notification of our next UNA LunchBox talk on Friday 16th September 2016. It is also our AGM which takes place between 12.30 and 1pm. The speaker at 1pm this month is Professor Catherine Rowett from the School of Philosophy at UEA. She will talk about ” What’s the relevance of Christian ethical teaching when it comes to international crises? And why some questions have no answers.”

This is a stunning subject and should make a very interesting discussion. Do please try to come.

best wishes,

In a time when divisions, violence and attacks increasingly make international headlines, Norwich Peace wish to invite you all to the next Vigil for Peace on Saturday 6th August 12 midday – 12.30pm outside St. Peter Mancroft, opposite The Forum, Norwich.

At 12.30pm we will process from St Peter Mancroft to Chapelfield Gardens to remember the many civilian victims of Hiroshima day at the Peace Pillar and share food.

In spite the NATO military build-up in Eastern Europe, terror attacks in France and the attempted military coup in Turkey, we can achieve peace if we all stand together.

Dear Friends,

UNA Norwich are very pleased to welcome Dev Ghimire and Gyaljen Sherpa to talk about the charity “Nepal in Need”.  Gyaljen is one of the founder members and will talk about how Nepal In Need helped the traumatised people of Nepal recover and rebuild from the two recent disasterous earth quakes.   The charity organised and funded a four-man specialist surgical team to travel from the James Paget Hospital in Norfolk to a hospital in Kathmandu. They provided orthopedic surgery for those people most seriously injured in the earth quake.

The mission of Nepal In Need is to help the mountain people of Nepal with primary health care, education and the provision of basic utilities in order that they lead better, healthier and more enriched lives.

The talk is at 1pm in the Friends Meeting House on Friday 15th July. I hope to see you there.

best wishes,

Marguerite

Stop Saudi’s War on Yemen

Friends Meeting House. Upper Goat Lane, Norwich
Wednesday 15TH June, 7pm
All welcome – Admission Free

SPEAKER: CHRIS NINEHAM
Vice Chair, National Stop the War Coalition

The British government claims it will not tolerate indiscriminate violence committed by extremists. How then to explain the deafening silence from those same voices on the situation in Yemen? There Saudi Arabia, a regime that fits the definition of “extremist” if the term has any serious meaning, is leading a brutal military operation in which UK-supplied aircraft, bombs and missiles are playing a major role.

“Torture: What is it Good For?”.

Dear Friends,
It is time again to circulate information about the forthcoming UNA talk in the Friends Meeting House at 1pm on Friday 17th June. This month our speaker will be Dr Wendy McMahon – Senior Lecturer in American Studies at UEA.

She will talk on Human Rights – specifically on Torture. The title of the talk is “Torture: What is it Good For?”. The talk will focus on the contemporary debate about whether or not torture can ever be justified in the name of national security and global peace. Dr McMahon will address the question of whether there is any place for torture in a liberal democracy as well as the relationship between torture, the law and American culture.

Do try and attend this topical and informative talk on Friday 17 June.

Best wishes,

Marguerite Finn
Vice Chair UNA (Norwich & District)
