Join the Peace Pledge Union and friends in Tavistock Square, London, to remember all victims of war, both civilian and military, past and present, and commit to working for peace.
The National Alternative Remembrance Ceremony takes place every year in front of the memorial stone for conscientious objectors in Tavistock Square in Bloomsbury. Those present will observe two minutes’ silence and white poppy wreaths will be laid on the memorial in memory of all victims of war. Pax Christi vice-President, Pat Gaffney will be one of the speakers.
The ceremony will include a message from the Parents Circle – Families Forum (PCFF), a joint Israeli-Palestinian organisation of over 600 families, all of whom have lost an immediate family member to the ongoing conflict. The PCFF works towards reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians – a prerequisite to achieving a sustainable peace.
All welcome – no need to book.
A full list of speakers will be announced shortly.
November 12th, 2023 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
