The message below is from the Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT).
I am writing to you as a member of CAAT's Christian Network, to ask you to take urgent action to call on Church House conference centre not to host arms industry events.
On 1st and 2nd November, a conference sponsored by some of the world's largest arms companies is taking place at Church House, which also houses the administrative headquarters of the Church of England. The conference focus on “Air Power” suggests that it will be used to promote continued high military spending and the use of drones, which the Bishop of Wolverhampton says “reduce death to the level of a computer game”.
The Church House conference centre is run by a charity, whose president is the Archbishop of Canterbury and whose council includes “representatives of national church institutions”.
CAAT Christian Network, along with Pax Christi, Christian CND, Christianity Uncut and other concerned Christians, is calling on people to raise the matter with the Archbishop of Canterbury, asking him to ensure that Church House conference centre will never again host events which support and legitimise the arms industry.
Please take two minutes to send a message to the Archbishop of Canterbury now:http://act.caat.org.uk/lobby/
Please also forward this message to others who might be interested.
