A joint letter from Pax Christi and Westminster Justice and Peace was published on the Guardian website on 13 July 2012.

In the wake of the G4S security fiasco, the Justice and Peace Commission continues to express concern about the high profile of the military at the forthcoming London 2012 Games.

If the Olympic ideal of laying down weapons to take up friendly sporting competition is to be truly fulfilled we need to challenge the increasing militarisation of the Games.

The proclamation of 100 Days of Peace to surround the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games is underway. Events began with an all-night Peace Vigil at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, in the centre of London on 8/9 June 2012. Hundreds of people came to pray for peace. Sikhs, Buddhists and Muslims joined Christians of all denominations to reflect on the great need of the world for peace. The final hour was attended by the Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, and the Bishop of London, Richard Chartres. Everyone is now asking 'What can we do to make the Olympic Truce a reality?'
