Bangor and Ynys Môn Peace and Justice Group

Campaigning for peace, justice and human rights

If you are living or studying in the Bangor and Ynys Môn area, join up with the local peace and justice  group. Everybody is welcome. We have weekly meetings to discuss world events; we organise public talks and debates, exhibitions, fund-raising, films, gigs, stand-up comics and festivals; we lobby politicians and media; we organise petitions and  high-street stalls; we organise non-violent direct action and protests; we network with other progressive activist groups in all sorts of areas.

Our recent campaigns are wide-ranging and include:

  • support for the people of  Gaza and justice for Palestine; boycott of Israeli goods; support for the Bustan Qaraaqa permaculture project at Beit Sahour near Bethlehem, founded by former Bangor students.
  • peace  in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan
  • conflict resolution in Sudan, Rwanda and Congo
  • democracy in Burma
  • Latin American issues
  • humanitarian responses to disasters in Haiti, Pakistan etc
  • campaigns against the arms trade
  • no Trident replacement, no to all nuclear weapons. We  campaign alongside CND Cymru and Trident Ploughshares. Some of us also oppose nuclear power, campaigning alongside PAWB (People Against Wylfa B).
  • We have campaigned on international law and human rights with regard to Guantanamo Bay, detention without trial, torture and rendition; on racism,  and on international women’s rights and LGBT rights; climate changeand conflict; fair trade.
  • We have supported all-Wales campaigns such as No to St Athan military academy; No to drone development at Aberporth; the establishment of a Wales Peace Institute; local recognition of ‘white poppies’.

Our agenda is open to all issues concerning human rights, international law and peace.
