Founded in 1945, Pax Christi International is an international Catholic peace movement. Its website says its mission is “to transform a world shaken by violence, terrorism, deepening inequalities, and global insecurity.”

Statement from Pax Christi Australia: “Pax Christi is appalled by the human suffering that has been inflicted on the people of Ukraine. We need to oppose the violence and urgently call for a ceasefire. But there is so much more to the conflict which has been simmering for years. The aim is to go beyond political spin and platitudes.” (1 hr. 15 min.)
