Action Alert - Hikoi of Hope Week 3
Peace Movement AotearoaPO Box 9314, Wellington. Tel (04) 382 8129, fax (04) 382 8173, email@example.com
Issued 17 September 1998
Hi To All Hikoi People
Just to let you all know that Caritas has just published a booklet called Employment and Justice. Employment and Justice is the third in the Social Justice Series issued by Caritas, and was published to coincide with Social Justice Week for the Catholic Church in NZ - 20th to 26th September (the previous two in the series looked at poverty, and housing/homelessness).
The booklet may complement the Hikoi backgrounder (flyer) on employment. I hope it will be a good resource for those participating in the Hikoi.
The booklet looks at a number of issues including Unemployment, Pay and Income, Conditions of Work, Employment-related and Economic policy. It is also attractively presented with a full colour cover and photos. The booklet encourages an exploration of issues effecting workers, both employed and unemployed, from an ethical and spiritual perspective, and to develop a response based on a sense of justice.
If you would like copies, they are available from Caritas for the special price of $3 per copy incl postage and packaging. Please let me know if you are interested.
Also, Caritas has produced a poster for Social Justice Week which reads 'Work is for People, and not People for Work' (John Paul II, LE 6). It is also very attractive (even though I say so myself!). We have copies available for people free of charge. Again, let me know if you would like some.
Te Hikoi mo te Tumanako mo te Rawakore / the Hikoi of Hope continues ! Below are the routes which will be taken during the third week, but some reminders first.
