Justice mail Action 30th April 2015

Dear Justice Mail friends,

Now that the general election on 7 May is almost upon us, it is time to start thinking ahead about the next G7 summit which will take place in Germany on 7-8 June.  As the host, Chancellor Angela Merkel will have a lot of influence in deciding the main emphases of the meeting.  The campaigning organisation ONE is asking us to write in advance to Chancellor Merkel inviting her to give a prominent place to the continuing struggle against world poverty, particularly in view of the fact that it is women who bear the brunt of poverty.  ONE says ‘Being born female in one of the world’s poorest countries means your life will be harder, simply because of your gender’.

Follow the link below to sign the appeal going to Chancellor Merkel.

Influence G7 agenda

‘Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan, I will now arise,’ says the Lord. ‘I will protect them from those who malign them’ (Psalm 12.5).

Let us work with God for the fulfilment of God’s mission.

Yours,

John Hull

Justice Mail Action 14th April 2015

Dear Justice Mail Friends,

Over 200,000 young women and girls are trafficked to work in cotton spinning, weaving and dyeing mills in the Tamil Nadu region of India.

Female workers, mainly aged 14 to 23 years old, are recruited with false promises of a good job and a lump sum payment under the guise of an “apprenticeship” scheme called Sumangali. Once recruited, they are essentially trapped within a factory for up to five years. The cotton fabric produced in these factories is sold to consumer markets all over the world.

Justice Mail Action 2nd April 2015

Dear Justice Mail Friends

As we remember the Prince of Peace who died at the hands of the men of violence, we learn that on 20 March 2015 the government Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has appointed the Chair of BAE Systems as the Vice-Chair of the BBC Trust. BAE is the largest arms company in Europe and has supplied weaponry to many oppressive and totalitarian states. The makers of death continually seek for social approval but we must insist that they have no place in the leading cultural, educational and entertainment agency which helps shape the values and attitudes of millions of people in Britain and abroad.

Add your name to the petition sponsored by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) by following the link below.

In the following verse I retain the common translation ‘men of good will’ because I do not believe that the Chair of BAE Systems can be described as a man of good will.

‘Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will’ (Luke 2.14).

Yours on this holy Wednesday,
