PEACE PEOPLE


We are men and women from every corner of the world: from different nations, races, cultures and religious beliefs.

WE ARE PEACE PEOPLE

Some of us have left our countries because of war, persecution and discrimination. Some others have left homes and families seeking a better future. Others again live in countries where social conditions ensure no more hunger or war.

WE ARE PEACE PEOPLE

All of us have a dream: that people can live together, no longer thought of as foreigners. We want to live this Movement of ours amongst the most diverse peoples, where this very diversity is seen as a positive value.

We realise that respect for each other, that non-violence, justice, solidarity and mutual esteem, are not just dreams, but are the real secret of saving this world in which we live.

WE ARE PEACE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE:

- in respect for every man and woman, recognizing the sacredness of each one; each is God's creature.
- in non-violence as the most powerful weapon against all violence, capable of energizing good will amongst all.
- that it is right and just to commit oneself in order to ensure that all may enjoy equality, becoming full citizens of a more just world.
- in solidarity with all, but especially with those who are weak and suffering.
- in peace, the most profound desire of every man and woman.

We wish to live according to these principles, with God's help.

With this love for peace, we recognize all as our brothers and sisters, without exception, as children of the one God, even though we differ in language, culture and religion.

WE ARE THE PEACE PEOPLE MOVEMENT.

 

Rome, October 9th 1999
