Syria: thinking beyond violence

 

On 10 September, the German section of Pax Christi issued a statement on the current situation in Syria. Pax Christi Germany is concerned about a potential military intervention in Syria, and calls on the international community to seize Syria's readiness to give up its chemical weapons as a chance for dialogue and peace negotiations.  

Pax Christi Germany further puts forward a series of recommendations for the German government’s response to the Syrian crisis, and suggestions on how everyone can show solidarity through vigils, demonstrations, prayer and fasting, signing petitions for a diplomatic and political solution to the conflict, etc.
