Investing in Peace

Our event this year is on Saturday 22/9/2018
only one day after UN International Day of Peace , Peace One Day

as usual at Norwich Forum 9-4pm

Peace is priceless yet relatively costs very little and with immeasurable returns.

War achieves nothing and is vastly expensive

with no returns except bancruptcy, destruction, death, injury, orphans, refugees and injustice

the only ‘beneficiaries’ are arms manufacturers and traders

and these gain nothing either. Read more

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

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!

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

A NPC&PC Trident Statement, please read !

Posted on | March 15, 2016 | No Comments

National serviceman in the early 1950s infantry learnt not to fire until “you can see the whites of their eyes”, and how to propel an anti-tank grenade from an old-fashioned rifle. Nothing about the atom bomb the UK was already testing, or “the bloody Union Jack” Ernest Bevin wanted on it. We were conscripts, called up by a country still in shock from so nearly losing a war, still numbly following the Roman Vegetius’s maxim “if you want peace, prepare for war”. Yet it was not altogether surprising our leaders thought then it needed a super weapon, not requiring us to get within 100 yards of a tank to knock it out. The surprise is that, 65 years later, we have lost sight of much of the dignity of military service, beneath the overwhelming inhumanity, hypocrisy and cost of Trident. Read more

Thursday 8th-Saturday 10th January 2015

Welcome to this remarkable photographic documentary of the ancient town of Bil’in in occupied West Bank

taken by the children of Bil’in themselves it chronicles daily life

in a place which has been repeatedly in the news owing to annexation and demolitions and expulsions to make way for illegal settlements

The exhibition is brought to us by Gwen Backwell (who herself has been to Bil’in)

from Liverpool with which it is twinned

In addition Gwen will be giving a talk and leading a discussion from 1pm Saturday in the Curve in the Forum

Palestinian style light food and refreshments will be available and Palestinian products will also be on sale

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.

World War One Centenary

Posted on | December 15, 2013 | No Comments

with the centenary of the commencement of WWl  upon us

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…

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

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:

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.
