Voices from the South E-Newsletter: August 2017
In this month’s edition of “Voices from the South”, we share with you a contribution from the National Coalition of Christian Organizations in Palestine (NCCOP). The NCCOP is formed as a national coordination network between a variety of Christian institutions and organizations in Palestine.
In June 2017 the NCCOP issued an open letter to the World Council of Churches (WCC) urging them, the global ecumenical movement and churches to not forget the Palestinian struggle. In the letter they call for the global ecumenical community to recognize Israel as an apartheid state; to support the global non-violent BDS-movement; and for church leaders and pilgrims to visit Palestine as solidarity witnesses for justice and peace. The letter is published in full, below.
