Pax Christi USA signed onto a July 28th letter regarding the situation Burma. The letter was initiated by the Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach and sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The letter begins, “We write to you as people of faith out of sorrow for the people of Burma and a desire that they can someday enjoy true justice and democracy. The U.S. government can help to make this hope a reality by calling for the United Nations to hold a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into crimes against humanity committed by the Burmese government.”
Joining Pax Christi USA in signing the letter were the American Jewish World Service, Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and the United Church of Christ, Justice and Witness Ministries.
