Europe: Pax Christi International joins PAX, Pax Christi Vlaanderen in signing onto letter to new Members of the European Parliament regarding peace project
6/9/19 - Earlier this week, Pax Christi International joined our partners at PAX and Pax Christi Vlaanderen alongside 58 other non-profit organisations "to express our deep concern about a number of policy proposals which, taken together, call into question the EU’s founding values of human rights, peace and disarmament." The open letter to Members of the European Parliament is titled, "The EU peace project is under threat".
The ltter asserts, "As a newly-elected MEP, you will have to give your opinion on EU external action priorities and make final decisions on a number of key files, in particular the next EU budgetary cycle for 2021-2027. Looking at the current proposals and the global context in which they occur paints a worrying picture of the EU’s future path, which increasingly tends towards a controversial military approach to global issues."
