Vanuatu Christians march against minority religious-based groups

The Vanuatu Christian Council (VCC) organized what it terms as a biggest march through Port Vila this morning in protest against non-Christian faiths

In a nationwide appeal for support, Chairman of VCC, Pastor Allan Navuki told listeners of Radio Vanuatu to join the march today to pledge their support for their Christian faith.

He said the march was decided after VCC was advised by the government about a planned major conference of the Muslim faith in Vanuatu.

Pastor Navuki confirmed the VCC had also refused a reconciliation proposal from the minority Muslim faith.

“Vanuatu is a Christian country and this is embedded in our national constitution and we cannot risk our peace by allowing the rich denominations into our nation top influence what we already have,” he said.

“I am calling on all Christians to come in big numbers to show what we mean as a Christian nation”.

The march is one of the longest marches, beginning from Tagabe and ending up at the Saralana stage where various speeches were made by VCC leaders.

There are about 1000 members of the Muslim faith in Vanuatu.
