Global Campaign on Military Spending 2017 @ National
Apr 20 @ 12:00 am – Apr 23 @ 11:45 pm

 GDAMS card17GCOMS 2017 will run from 20 April  to 23 April – we hope this may give an opportunity to spread actions and events into the week-end.

A great opportunity to raise the issue of military spending – asking the question, “does it make us safer”.  Help others to think about this with a stall in your town centre or church.  Highlight the opportunities that are lost when governments spend money on the military rather than on health, education, development, climate change and more…

Ideas on how to run stalls here

Ash Wednesday 2018 Leaflet 

Join us for a time of prayer and symbolic action at the Ministry of Defence on Ash Wednesday 14 February 2018.  We will reflect on  our own need of repentance and conversion and call our Government to repent of its involvement in nuclear war preparations.  We will also be inspired by the encouragement of Pope Francis and other religious leaders and the success of the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty in 2017.

We meet at 3.00pm in Whitehall Gardens (closest to Embankment station.  Come out of station on rive-side and turn right and walk to Whitehall Gardens)

This liturgy and action is planned by Pax Christi, London Catholic Worker and Christian CND
