Ecumenical body makes 200 submissions to Constitution Commission

About 200 submissions from members and supporters of the Ecumenical Centre for Research, Education and Advocacy (ECREA) were made to the Constitution Commission in Suva, Fiji, last Friday.

Father Kevin Barr of ECREA said they had conducted awareness programs and workshops for their members on how they could make their voices heard.

He said workers had raised concerns because they believed that Fiji could not have peace without justice.

“Our main message today (Friday) is justice and peace,” Father Barr said.

ECREA is a Non Government Organisation based in Suva, Fiji Islands. Founded in 1990 by the late Reverend Paula Niukula, with the aim to address the social, religious, economic and political issues that confront Fiji.

ECREA is guided by the principles of:

  • Social Justice & Equity
  •  Integral Human Development
  •  Servant Leadership

Its website provides information about its programmes, resource centre and more.
