This is a regular event

Please join us for the National Alternative Remembrance Ceremony to remember all victims of war, both civilian and military, past and present, and commit to working for peace.
This year's event will focus on the terrible events unfolding in Israel and Palestine, as well as the extraordinary work of peace campaigners on both sides and internationally. With speakers including:
- Isabel Kelly, with 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.
- Pat Gaffney, vice president of Pax Christi and a member of Women in Black London. Pat will speak about Pax Christi's ongoing work with peace campaigners in Israel and Palestine.
- Richard Kuper from Jews for Justice for Palestinians (JJP), an organisation closely involved in recent demonstrations calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.
The national ceremony takes place every year in front of the memorial stone for conscientious objectors in Tavistock Square. We will observe two minutes' silence and white poppy wreaths will be laid on the memorial in memory of all victims of war.
