Next week the military is coming to Wood Green, London.
Haringey Civic Centre
1830 – 2030hrs
Monday 27 January.
They intend to hold A Celebration of the Multi Faith Nature of Our Armed Forces.
They also want to highlight the diversity of our Armed Forces, and its role and work within faith communities. Whatever that means???
The Army are drawing attention to this subject and misrepresenting the reality. There main effort is to recruit from ethnic minorities (an untapped resource) and win over the hearts and minds of the “community leaders”.
Our aim on Monday is to counter their vision of a harmonious multi-ethnic multi-faith army and to highlight the true nature of the work the army carries out abroad.
Hopefully our intervention on Monday will make groups like Faith Matters think twice before inviting the army into our communities.
If you are free next monday and can make it to Wood Green then please come along.
If you can’t make it but have some experiences you would like voiced please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
