UK: Pax Christi UK members protest Gaza killings


from Ann Farr, Pax Christi International Board member

26/5/18 - Pax Christi UK members, Paschal Somers, Paul McGowan and Ann Farr were joined, on the steps of Coventry Cathedral Ruins, by Marwan Darweish, Carol Rank and Andrew Rigby for a silent vigil for Gaza last week. At intervals we read aloud the names of those brutally killed in Gaza on Nakba Day. We remembered too all those who had been killed during the Great March of Return, all those injured and all who mourn.

We held posters that reminded us, and passers-by, that Coventry, the City of Peace and Reconciliation, is implicated in the carnage through its Pension Fund investments in the Arms Trade. Coventry University rents property to Leidos, a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, the biggest Arms Trader in the world.
