Appeal of Conscience Foundation's Joint Declaration with the Council of European Bishops' Conferences on Protection of Religious Minorities
The Appeal of Conscience Foundation and the Council of European Bishops’ Conferences (CCEE), concerned about the persistent violence, persecutions of Christian minorities and other religious groups, calls upon the United Nations to adopt a Resolution for the Protection of Religious Minorities.

We condemn all acts or threats of violence, destruction, damage or endangerment, directed against religious minorities, including the destruction of places of worship and sacred religious texts of any kind.

We call upon all states to prevent acts or threats of violence, and invite relevant intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations to contribute to those efforts by developing appropriate initiatives to advance mutual respect and recognition of religious minorities.

The Council of European Bishops’ Conferences and the Appeal of Conscience Foundation encourage all states, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations and the media to promote through education a culture of mutual respect and tolerance for the diversity of religions, which represent an important aspect of the collective heritage of mankind.
