Peace in our times? Veterans for Peace meeting, Oct 31

Sutton for Peace and Justice in association with Veterans For Peace UK are staging a public meeting:

NEVER AGAIN? 1918 to 2018, 100 years of war

on Wednesday October 31, 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm)

Sutton Quaker Meeting House, Cedar Road, Sutton, SM2 5DA

November 11 will be the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice, when the slogan “Never again” was a common rally cry – never again should the world see the suffering wrought by the “War to end all wars”.

Yet a century later people continue to be killed in military conflict across the world.

This meeting will look at the military interventions of the UK since the World War I and explore the possibility for a non-aggressive defence policy in the 21st century.

Come and hear from our speakers and take part in the debate as we seek to honour the true sentiment of Remembrance Day – Never Again.

With:

Ben Griffin – former member of the SAS and National Coordinator of Veterans For Peace UK, and

Phillip Clarke – former member of the Intelligence Corps and Chair of Veterans For Peace UK.

There is no entry charge. Donations will be taken.

Please confirm your attendance by email to sutton4peace@yahoo.co.uk
or by text message to 07740 594496.

Veterans For Peace UK is a voluntary, open and democratic organisation of men and women who have served in the armed forces – from WWII to Afghanistan. Veterans For Peace UK believes that “War is not the solution to the problems we face in the 21st century”.
