Striving for peace and equality means focussing on causes that support minority groups, and fight against social injustice and (racial) inequality. Recent events (including the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers on May 25, 2020) have shown the world once again that racism is still alive and around us. We wish to do our part in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, and any other initiatives that strive for peace and equality for those who have been denied peace and equality.
Striving for peace and equality for our world means focussing on causes that protect our environment and its nature. We feel that the fight against social injustice and racial inequality will only succeed when we also work on our climate crisis simultaneously — mainly because minority groups suffer more from the consequences of environmental pollution than others. But also, because we can only improve the world, if there is still a world to improve.
