Justice and Peace

'Justice and Peace' was formed in response to Vatican II, Pope Paul VI setting up the Pontifical Commission for justice and peace in 1967. A justice and peace group was founded in Johannesburg in 1973/4. ' Justice and Peace' was keenly aware that Apartheid had been a key characteristic of societal imbalances. Apart from its primary focus which was to raise awareness in the Catholic Community, Justice and Peace worked closely with both local and international organisations (religious and lay) who were committed to transforming society through justice and reconciliation.

Young Christian Students South Africa (YCS), Records

The Afrapix photographers represented in this collection are Anna Zieminski, Eric Miller, and others unidentified.

The YCS was an international movement, which embraced Christian values of love, justice and peace. It was an ecumenical Christian student movement operating in parishes, schools, seminaries, universities and other higher education institutions. It had its origins in the Belgium Catholic Church at the beginning of the twentieth century.

The YCS was started in South Africa in 1959, initially as a parish for younger school goers who were members of the Young Christian Workers. The main aim of the YCS at this time was to ‘Christianise’ the schools and universities. From 1965, it also began to focus on high schools. Its activities were centred around get-togethers, rallies and groups who looked critically at youth culture and education. Actions focused on: charity, parish work, and challenging values at schools.

In the mid 1970’s the YCS became an independent non-racial movement in South Africa.
