Serious remembrance of wars calls for serious work for peace.
Make a date with the peace movement!
MAW is a member of the FIRST WORLD WAR PEACE FORUM* which is organising events on Remembrance Day :
A ceremony of Remembrance and Peace
… 100 years after the end of the First World War, with speakers.
At 1pm in Tavistock Square, London WC1
Drop by to meet peace activists and find out about current peace campaigns
From 2-5pm in Friends House, Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ
(No previous experience necessary!) Café, live music, films, books, stalls, with children’s programme led by Woodcraft Folk.
As well as the organisations which make up the Forum (including MAW), the following will have stalls at the afternoon event: CAAT, CND, ForcesWatch, WRI and Housmans Bookshop.
All welcome. Bring family, friends, colleagues.
Organisations and local groups are encouraged to publicise this and also plan their own events.
The Peace Forum has produced a poppy/dove design available here. We should like you to download and use as you wish. It would be great to have banners, flags etc displayed in prominent positions in your locality well in advance of Remembrance Day, so that the image gains familiarity nationwide. You can also use the design on leaflets, posters, etc. of your own. The idea is to provide an alternative to the establishment commemorations, mourning the death and destruction of war, while working positively towards a more peaceful world.
There are a number of versions of the logo. Click to download, or on the images to see the full size version.
