Pax Christi: Righting our Relations with the ‘Blue Pacific Continent’

Pax Christi Logo

You are invited to Pax Christi’s July Agape on Sunday July 3rd at 1pm (for a shared lunch) and presentation on Righting our Relations with the ‘Blue Pacific Continent’ – Australia’s neighbouring island nations in the Pacific.

Righting our Relations with the ‘Blue Pacific Continent’

The recent change of Government is an opportunity to review and reset Australia’s relationship with our Pacific neighbours.

Pacific Island nations sometimes call themselves the Blue pacific Continent to indicate they are not just scattered islands, but are collectively dominant custodians of the Pacific Ocean with their vast Exclusive Economic Zones.
