IRAQ: PC International co-signs letter to Obama urging alternatives to military action

Just peace. End the cycle of violence.


from Pax Christi International

IraqCrisis-smallPax Christi International co-signed a letter to U.S. President Obama urging alternatives to U.S. military action in Iraq. The letter, initiated by 53 U.S. religious groups, academics, and ministers, calls on the U.S. Administration to look into better, more effective, more healthy and more humanizing ways to protect civilians and to engage this conflict. Using an alternative frame, signatories to this letter propose some “just peace” ways the United States and others could apply not only to help save lives in Iraq and the region, but also to begin to transform the conflict and break the cycle of violent intervention.
