‘Transforming unjust structures’ – Audiomission Mar 2016

This month our occasional series on 'the five marks of mission' continues with the longest of the marks: "To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation".

Violence of every kind has been experienced far too often in too many places lately, and not least in Burundi, where mission associate Simon Guillebaud is based with his organisation Great Lakes Outreach. We also meet mission partners in India who are working with those trapped at the bottom by society's unjust structures – including refugee women and people with leprosy. And we hear from mission partner Ed Brice about his work with the Asociana team in northern Argentina, who stand alongside and fight for the rights of indigenous peoples there.
