From Pax Christi The peace we seek cannot come from weaponry, but from a commitment to justice and nonviolent actions which recognise the dignity of every human person and all creation. We reject models of security that rely on fear, the demonisation of others or on the strength of arms – conventional and nuclear. (Pax Christi Vision Statement 1995) https://paxchristi.org.uk/
