A ceremony of remembrance for all those who established and maintain the right to refuse to kill 

Monday, May 15, 2017 from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Join Conscience supporter Sir Mark Rylance and Nick Jeffrey (Vietnam War draft resister) as we gather at the Conscientious Objectors’ stone in London for the annual ceremony in honour of COs past and present.

There will be some short speeches, songs led by Sue Gilmurray, a minute’s silence, and flowers laid at the stone, as we remember the COs of all countries and all times. The ceremony takes about one hour.

Bring your family, friends, and there will be a picnic for afterwards. All welcome. Free and open to all.
