One hundred years ago, on 11 November an armistice brought World War I to an end. One of the deadliest wars in history, around 9 million combatants and 7 million civilians died as a direct result. We’re re-launching Croydon Peace Council to reaffirm our commitment to a world free of war.
Croydon’s buzzing with activity nowadays– so many groups and individuals working for peace, solidarity and the preservation of the planet. Carol Turner, author of Corbyn & Trident, will kick off an informal discussion about ways we can work together and support each other’s efforts.
That’s after a reading by Jan Woolf, a co-founder of No Glory in War which campaigns to promote peace and international understanding as part of the centenary commemorations, and a short film, March to Aldermaston – a record of the first Ban the Bomb march, directed by Lindsay Anderson and narrated by Richard Burton.
