Peace, not war!

Wednesday 10 July 2019, 7.30–9.30pm, doors open at 7.00 at Sutton Quaker Meeting House, Cedar Road, Sutton, SM2 5DA

We need to work for peace, not plan for war.

We have recently marked the 75th anniversary of D-Day and last year the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice, and the key message from both was that we should remember the horrors of war to prevent their recurrence.  Yet people continue to die in military conflict across the World as money is invested to develop new ways of killing.

Come and hear from our speakers and take part in the debate:

Chris Cole on drones, the war machine and killing by remote control. Chris is founder of Drone Wars UK, a small, UK-based, NGO working towards a long-term goal of an international ban on the use of armed drones.

Amy Todd on the history of women working for peace. Amy works as a public engagement officer for the Institute of Historical Research on the Layers of London project and is a member of WILPF.

There is no entry charge, donations will be taken.
