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.

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinity 2003. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about "Children and Work." "The International Labour Organisation estimates that there are 246 million working children aged between 5 and 17." "A recent UNICEF Report states that `The most familiar example of adults exploiting children is hazardous labour. Adults often make children work long hours in homes, factories, in fields or on the streets, rather than sending them school -- denying them their fundamental rights to education and protection'. The forces behind such exploitation of children are powerful: greed, lust, war, poverty." "The document `A World Fit For Children' was produced by the UN General Assembly's Special Session on Children 8-10 May 2002. It stresses again the rights of children to education and the need to protect them from economic exploitation. This newsletter makes clear the amount of work which must be done to achieve this goal. But it also tells of practical projects which, even in a small way, are helping to alleviate the problems: cultivating pepper seeds in Ghana and so enabling parents to meet school fees; projects to help educate street children in Brazil; the Tamil Nadu Theological Seminary working to raise awareness and bring education and hope to child labourers in India".

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Michaelmas 2003. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about "Violence and the Family." During the 12 years of its existence the International Anglican Family Network (IAFN) has always been a "virtual network linked by the Newsletter. However, through a generous grant, the first Consultation since the inception of the Network was recently held in Nairobi, Kenya. It was held in Africa because Christians from that continent had been some of the most enthusiastic contributors to the Network. The topic of `Violence and the Family' was chosen because it was a theme which had recurred in the newsletters." 32 people attended the Consultation representing 17 African countries and a wide range of professions. It was co-chaired by Archdeacon Taimalelagi Fagamalama Tuatagalaoa, the Anglican Observer at the United Nations and Dr. David Gitari, former Archbishop of Kenya. The Consultation considered three aspects of violence and the family: violence between couples, violence against children and violence from the wider world. This newsletter is based on material from the Nairobi Consultation and sets out some recommendations of the final report which is available from the IAFN office.

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Christmas 1997. A series of short reports from 12 different regions and countries describing the churches' response to the problem of abuse and exploitation of children and youth."Exploitation and abuse of young people is not just confined to the developing world. Violence, child prostitution and other unacceptable forms of child labour flourish in the U.K and U.S.A., as well as in Africa and South America. In its 1997 Report on the State of the World's Children, UNICEF stated that primary education for all would lessen the abuses of child labour and the cycle of poverty it helps to perpetuate. This is an aim for governments, churches, and individuals."
