ANTI-WAR events will take place across the country today to counter 100th anniversary celebrations of Britain’s entry into WWI.
Britain’s recent record of foreign wars, including Iraq and Afghanistan, its commitment to Nato expansion and support for Israeli aggression make it essential that there is a strong anti-war message on the day, says Stop The War.
The campaign group is organising a No Glory — No More War rally in Parliament Square this evening from 6.30pm aimed at countering Prime Minister David Cameron’s “celebration” and “glorification” of the WWI centenary.
Speakers and performers at the event include actors Samuel West and Kika Markham.
Jeremy Corbyn MP will read Keir Hardie’s anti-war speech of 1914 and writer AL Kennedy will read Carol Ann Duffy’s Last Post in honour of Harry Patch, the last surviving soldier from the WWI trenches, who said until the day he died in 2009 that war was “legalised mass murder.”
Wreaths will be laid at bus stations and garages across London today in memory of the transport workers who died in the 1914-18 war.
