Conscientious Objectors’ Day 2019

by Fay Salichou ~ May 14th, 2019. Filed under: News.

Each year, on May 15th, we gather at the Conscientious Objectors’ stone for the annual ceremony in honour of COs past and present.

Co-hosted by the Members of the First World War Peace Forum, the event programme, held at Tavistock Square (Bloomsbury, London WC1), is as follows:

– 3 Brilliant Guest Speakers: Lois Bibbings (University of Bristol) Michael Lyons (former Navy medic & Afghanistan Conscientious Objector) Jay Sutherland (organiser of the White Poppy Appeal Kilmarnock & convenor of Anti War Ayrshire)

– 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 and friends for a picnic afterwards.

All are welcome. Members of the First World War Peace Forum sponsor this event.
