From 28 May-3 June 2012 people all over the UK will be taking action for a just peace in the Holy Land.
The 'World Week for Peace in Palestine and Israel' (WWPPI) is an initiative from the World Council of Churches calling participants to pray, educate and advocate for a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
This year it focuses on the themes of displacement and dispossession, and how these all too frequently cause hardship and instability, and fracture the possibility of peace.
During the week of peace churches in over 20 countries worldwide will use the resources available to raise awareness about the injustices in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory, encourage people to listen to the voices of those from the region, and take action to work for a just peace for all.
