Monday 4 August 1830hrs
Parliament Square, London.
Dress – white poppies.
Monday 4 August is the centenary of the day that Britain declared war against Germany. The No Glory in War campaign is holding an event in Parliament Square to commemorate the 15 million killed in the “war to end all wars”, including nearly one million British soldiers, and to say they can best be commemorated by creating a world in which there is no more war.
Join us in Parliament Square and show your opposition to further wars. Hear the truth about the First World War and the protests against it at the time. MPs, actors, historians, campaigners, war veterans and others will be speaking and reading from anti-war authors and activists in 1914-18.
Jim Radford and Ben Griffin of VFP UK will speak at this WW1 Centenary event organised by No Glory. Jim will also perform “The Shores of Normandy”.
