“They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.” (Isaiah 2:4)

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.” (Matthew 5:9)

As the world once again goes through the pain of destruction and death caused by war, the WSCF expresses its deep concern about the loss of innocent lives and the suffering and agony it causes to people and environment. As a Federation committed to justice, peace and integrity of Creation, We:

Denounce the armed invasion and military action carried out by the Russian Federation on Ukraine and urge Russia to respect international laws and national sovergnity of nations and end the ongoing armed attacks immediately.

Call diligently for the respect for human rights of all people within the territory of Ukraine and in those places where war related conflicts are developing.

Denounce the repression and criminalization of social protests against war and call for an immediate cessation of attacks by the military and paramilitary forces.

Call on the Russian Federation to establish channels of dialogue for de-escalation of tensions and for an imminent resolution of the conflict through peaceful means of diplomacy and dialogue.

Call on the international community especially the NATO and the UN Security Council to initiate dialogue in a just and responsible manner by putting the interests of people above the neoimperial interests of the market, particularly that of weapons.

Denounce the mis/disinformation campaigns undertaken by certain global mass media.

Denounce and reject all forms of imperial interests involved in the conflict and war, especially those eyeing military presence and control of territories and natural resources of other nations.

Call on Christian communities, faith -based organizations and all people of good will to denounce the culture of war, military chauvinism, hate and fear, pray for one another, express solidarity with victims of war and violence and to act for justice, peace and wholeness of Creation.
