The United Church of Canada, the country’s largest Protestant denomination, has launched a national campaign titled "Unsettling Goods", in an effort to work towards peace and justice in Palestine and Israel. Unsettling Goods encourages the boycott of three companies that are manufacturing goods in Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian territory: Ahava, Keter Plastics, and SodaStream. It also promotes direct engagement with the major retailers that sell these products: Canadian Tire, The Bay, Home Depot, and Walmart Canada.
Politicization of religion, rights of religious minorities and stateless people, peace and reunification of the Korean Peninsula and just peace served as subjects of the public statements adopted at the WCC 10th Assembly in Busan, Republic of Korea.
“’God of life, lead us to justice and peace’ has become a prayer around the world.” These were words of Dr Wedad Abbas Tawfik about the theme of the WCC 10th Assembly. She shared her experiences and hopes for social and political stability as a Coptic Christian in her country, Egypt.
