And so how to respond in this year of pandemic and a looming climate crisis to the UK government’s choice of weapons over aid?
UK's nuclear arsenal (30% up) vs food for starving children (30% down) breaking both a 30yr treaty commitment to reduce nuclear weapons stocks and a pledge to maintain overseas aid at 0.7 % of GDP.
Isaiah’s (700 BC) plea to his people to “beat their swords into ploughshares … learn war no more”, and Jesus’s command to “suffer little children…to come unto me”, nowhere in sight.
Encourage politicians to use all resources available both personal and collaborative to promote true peace, justice and equality and in so doing speak truth to power.
