There are few people who can speak with the authority of experience, an experience of violence, hatred and seemingly intractable positions, and who know how solutions can be found. Archbishop Tutu is one of them, perhaps the only one whose words are based in his deep love for humanity and his belief in our ability to rise above our fears to find peace with each other.

Supporting his plea and signing the petition calling on companies to boycott and divest from the Israeli occupation and repression of Palestine is one way you can be on the side of peace.

His call is to be read, listened to and acted upon.
