Corona virus

Posted on | April 9, 2020 | No Comments

Norwich Peace Camp & Peace Cycle commends all those, especially in NHS

who are doing everything they can to bring the Corona virus under control. This is a whole world issue, no one is totally unaffected.

We need complete international co-operation at all levels and and a final end to war forever. Enough is enough, too many have died and suffered over so many years in a futile attempt to be all powerful. The UN General Secretary very recently called for a global ceasefire, this should be honoured by all immediately. Once Corona virus is overcome, and we will overcome it as previous plagues and calamities also, we must finally learn the lessons that we cannot continue destroying ourselves and our beautiful earth on the altar of war. If we wish to survive and for those yet to come especially we owe this as a minimum out of respect to our better destiny and especially for those who are poor, downtrodden, disenfranchised and abused, all this has to end

or there will be no future at all for anyone.

Medecins Sans Frontieres

Dear Friends,

It is time to tell you about our February UNA LunchBox talk.  The talk will take place on Friday 21st February at 1pm in the Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich NR2 1EW.  Our talk this month will be about the activities of that wonderful organistation: Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF).  Medical teams from MSF act fast to save peoples lives in conflict zones, natural disasters and epidemics in over 65 countries around the world.

On any given day, there are over 30,000 inspiring doctors, nurses, logisticians and other project staff working for MSF overseas.  Our UK office is responsible for 300 staff and many of them are happy to share their stories once they have returned home.   And this is the case with our speaker today, Christopher Peskett.

Christopher is a Registered General Nurse who has worked in the field for over 10 years, in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.  He had a variety of roles: nursing manager, research coordinator, medical team leader and project coordinator.  No one could be better equipped to give us a valuable insight into the activities of Medecins Sans Frontiers.  Don’t miss it!

best wishes,

Marguerite Finn

Worldwide day of action, No war on Iran

Posted on | January 23, 2020 | No Comments

12:00 pmto1:00 pm
Here in Norwich England, Please come to City Hall steps midday.
Speakers, music and solidarity
with Iran and all peace-loving people and nations.
Don’t let Iran be sacrificed on the altar of war.

Psst! Here’s a secret. Don’t tell anybody, but public pressure has been key to preventing a U.S. war on Iran in 2015, 2012, 2007, and each time the urgent demand to start this war has been pressed on us. Nobody creates holidays to celebrate wars that didn’t happen, but they are the only wars worth celebrating. And knowing they’ve been prevented from happening can motivate some people to help prevent another one.

January 25 is a worldwide day of nonviolent activism to prevent a U.S. war on Iran . . . again!

A huge number of organizations are joining in.

You can find and/or add events to the rapidly growing list of planned demonstrations at CODE PINK or ANSWER.

Make sure your January 25th event, like all your events, is listed on the World BEYOND War Events Map.

Get shirts and sweatshirts to wear to your events.

Bring flyers to hand out and signup sheets to gather signatures on.

Learn more about the dangerof this war.

World BEYOND War is a global network of volunteers, activists, and allied organizations advocating for the abolition of the very institution of war. Our success is driven by a people-powered movement – support our work for a culture of peace.

Opening statement of UN Charter

In these war-torn and very dangerous times, let’s remember this:

Charter of the United Nations: 1945

“We the peoples of the United Nations Determined:

To save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and
to reafirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights or men and women and of nations large and small,
and to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and
to promote social progress and better standards of life
in larger freedom “

“Sustainable Shipping for a Sustainable Planet – The Role of the United Nations”.

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year !  It is time to tell you about the next UNA Lunchbox talk on Friday 17 January 2020 at 1pm in the Friends Meeting House in Upper Goat Lane, Norwich NR2 1EW.

Our speaker will be Lee Adamson, Head of Information Services, Legal Affairs and External Relations Division at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) – an agency of the UN.

But although safety at sea was and remains IMO’s most important responsibility, a new problem began to emerge – pollution. The growth in the amount of oil being transported by sea and in the size of oil tankers was of particular concern and the Torrey Canyon disaster of 1967, in which 120,000 tonnes of oil was spilled, demonstrated the scale of the problem.

During the next few years IMO introduced a series of measures designed to prevent tanker accidents and to minimize their consequences. It also tackled the environmental threat caused by routine operations such as the cleaning of oil cargo tanks and the disposal of engine room wastes – in tonnage terms a bigger menace than accidental pollution.

The title of Lee’s talk will be “Sustainable Shipping for a Sustainable Planet – The Role of the United Nations”.

Lee will talk about what the IMO does and how the 171 member countries work together on matters like ship design, crew training and environmental matters. He will also talk about IMO’s work helping developing countries build the capacity to meet their obligations under international treaties.

This is a timely and important topic and I hope that as many people as possible will come to hear it.
