Notes
The Anglican Peace and Justice Network met in New York NY in May 1996. This year the Network shared in the Round Table Conference on World Debt. Human rights were the main issue and the network heard about the work of the South African Truth Commission and about the meeting between Episcopal Presiding Bishop Edmond Browning and Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
"Although the meeting rejoiced at the news of the UN decision at Geneva that anti-personnel land mines should be declared illegal, they were distressed to see a White House spokesman saying that the one exception must be the frontier between North and South Korea". As a result of this, the network voted to hold its next meeting in South Korea.

"2005 marks the Anglican Peace and Justice Network's 20th anniversary and its meeting in Jerusalem in September 2004 brings it full circle to its first meeting which also took place in the City of Peace in 1985. Invited by the Right Reverend Riah Hanna Abu El-Assal, APJN convened 23 Provinces of the Anglican Communion under the leadership of Dr. Jenny Te Paa of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia ... (p. 7)". "APJN was both nurtured and shaken during its visit, the former by the warmth of the people of the diocese (virtually all of them Palestinian), and the latter by the conditions of Occupation under which most Palestinians live (p. 7)". "We recognize that the Israeli people have endured attacks and suicide bombings causing great suffering, loss and agony, and that the fear of further suicide bombings continues. We also recognize and lament the historical context of the experience of persecution and genocide by the Jewish people. However, the extent to which the Israeli government has gone in annexing Palestinian land and pushing the Palestinians into cantons and denying this people both dignity and self-determination is unjustifiable. If Israel continues with its actions in the name of security (as is often argued) then their hope for life without fear is diminished as the Palestinian people will continue in their struggle for nationhood (p. 9)".
Contents divided into four main sections.
Contents: List of Participant Provinces -- The Local Context of the Meeting -- Moral Responsibility of Investments -- APJN Statement on Palestinian/Israeli Conflict -- Honoring a Peacemaker -- Regional Conflicts : Seeking Conflict Transformation -- A Personal Challenge to the Communion / Pie Ntukamazina -- The Challenge of Globalization -- Environmental Justice -- Theological Education as Foundational to Peacemaking -- Interfaith Relations as a Tool for Justice -- A Conversation with Mordechai Vanunu -- Recommendations to the Anglican Consultative Council -- Networking -- Business Meeting and Closing Comments.
Section III Recommendations organized into four subject sections: Conflict Transformation -- Theological Education -- Interfaith Relations -- Environment.
The Anglican Church of Canada was represented by Ms. Cynthia Patterson.

"At the invitation of the Anglican Province of Korea, over 30 members of the Anglican Peace and Justice Network (APJN), representing 24 Provinces of the Anglican Communion, met on the grounds of Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea, from April 14 to April 21, 1999. .... In this summary of the meeting, the committee reports are presented first, followed by in-depth reports from the Provinces and some Dioceses of the Communion. .... There are also the immediate, active concerns of the APJN as a collective sounding board for the Communion. There are two papers on`Alternatives to War', in light of the international involvement in Kosovo and potential involvement elsewhere. And there is attention paid to problems in Korea, the host country. The group considered the problem of `Korean Re-Unification', and lifted up the ways in which the Christian churches are attempting to become partners in a healing process. Members of APJN made a visit to the DMZ, the dividing line between the estranged nations of the peninsula. And they considered ways to continue the dialogue, launched at Lambeth in 1998, of the church with its gay and lesbian members in a `Panel on Homosexuality'." -- Coming to Seoul, p. 3.
Contents divided into three sections: Introduction -- Section 1: Areas of Concern -- Section 2: Reports from the Churches.

"The announcement by the French Government that it intends to resume nuclear testing in the South Pacific in September has provoked widespread condemnation from Churches around the Communion." In a unanimous vote, the July 1995 Anglican General Synod deplored the resumption of nuclear testing. The Conference of European Churches sent a letter of protest to President Chirac. Article includes text of a "Statement from the Anglican Peace and Justice Network and the Anglican Observer at the UN". The statement was endorsed by Edmond L. Browning, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church."

APPENDIX E
Excerpted from Document #005-04-02-11, the EcoJustice Committee report to the Council of General Synod, November 2002
Resolutions of the 12th Anglican Consultative Council, numbered A, B, C, D1, D2, E (adapted as included in italics to fit the context of the Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada):
A. A World Fit for Children
This "Council of General Synod", in response to the United Nations Special Session on Children (May 2002) and the International Decade For a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010):
1. "Commits" to support the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child by advocating in support of the following:
a) building a world free from war, exploitation, abuse and violence, in consideration of the interests of children;
b) providing affordable and accessible healthcare [i.e. health care] for all children with a particular emphasis on HIV/AIDS prevention;
c) protecting the environment for this and for future generations;
d) ending the vicious cycle of poverty, including promoting transparency in expenditure and cancellation of the debt that impedes progress for children;
e) providing free and quality education that includes education for life including lessons in understanding, human rights, peace, acceptance and active citizenship;
f) engendering a real and effective commitment to the principle of children's rights in all sectors of society, including participation in religious civic and political structures; and
g) promoting active and meaningful participation of children in planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating all matters affecting the rights of the child.
1. [sic i.e. 2] "Re-affirms the action of General Synod" to promote a culture of non-violence that values love, compassion and justice and that rejects violence as a means of solving problems;
2. [sic i.e. 3] "Encourages dioceses and parishes" to use worship and study resources that relate both to current world conflict situations and to the theological and Biblical questions involved in the development of a culture of peace and non-violence;
3. [sic i.e. 4] "Commits to sign onto `A Canada Fit for Children', a declaration on the entitlements of children in Canada and the obligations of the government of Canada under the Convention of the Rights of Children" (Appendix D).
B. Patents
This "Council of General Synod":
1) views with concern the increased levels of exclusion and marginalisation of the world's most vulnerable peoples as a result of the changes in the application of international patent law, in that:
a) patents on medications, particularly those related to HIV/AIDS are making antiviral agents inaccessible in parts of the world where their availability is critical; and
b) the practice of applying for patents on genetic and biological materials means that the developing nations are finding it increasingly difficult to maintain control over their own genetic and biological resources.
2) recognising that patent rights are intended to protect legitimate commercial needs and interests, "commits to work ecumenically" to engage in advocacy to ensure that ongoing changes to patent law both at national levels, and at the level of international trade agreements (GATT - General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade / TRIPS - Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights Agreement) protect the needs and interests of vulnerable populations and of developing nations.
C. World Summit on Sustainable Development
This "Council of General Synod", following the recent World Summit held in Johannesburg, South Africa:
1. supports actions in the five key areas identified by the Summit, namely water and sanitation, energy, health, agricultural productivity, and biodiversity and ecosystem management;
2. adds its voice of concern and support to those calling for a renewed and committed international approach to the control of those processes which increase global warming and affect climate change;
3. urges "dioceses and parishes" to celebrate the Sunday nearest to 1st June, World Environment Day, as Environment Sunday in order to raise environmental awareness across the Communion.
D. 1. Debt Burden
This "Council of General Synod" notes with satisfaction that there is movement with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund that may offer some positive relief to the most heavily indebted countries; nevertheless, in view of the fact that the debt burden continues to cripple the economies and aspirations of the developing world, reaffirms its commitment to the campaign for debt relief and for a review of the conditions imposed on debtor nations.
D. 2. Funding for Disease
This "Council of General Synod", noting the continuing debt burden faced by African countries and being advised that debt relief could release an estimated $10 billion for the provision of desperately-needed medications for the treatment of HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and cholera, calls on nations and institutions to which African countries are indebted to find ways of relieving them of their debt in order that the money so released can be applied to the purchase of medications and treatment of disease on the continent.
E. Racial Justice
1. "affirms its commitment" to give increased attention to the implications of heightened bigotry and hate crimes against those designated as people of colour, indigenous peoples, and peoples of religions and ethnic origins or races, other than one's own who are currently migrating from their own countries, including refugees and asylum seekers;
2. "affirms the request of the Anglican Consultative Council to" the Anglican Peace and Justice Network and the Anglican UN Observer to prepare an overview of international implications of increased hostility and tension directed in many countries towards people of other religions, ethnic origins, colour and nationalities and to report to the Joint Standing Committee of ACC and the Primates;
3. states clearly that there should be no outcasts in our churches.
