Remembering the Conscientious Objectors (COs) of World War 1.
Liverpool

Remembering all the COs who continued to be incarcerated after the armistice. The suffering that these COs endured must never be forgotten. The last of the COs were still being called up and imprisoned as late as 1919.
We will read out some of the names of those COs who were imprisoned at Walton during the First World War, and some of the names of COs who are currently jailed throughout the world.

This is in advance of us marking Prisoners for Peace Day on December 1st.

Travel Directions. Walton Prison is close to both Rice Lane & Walton railway stations. For both bus & train timetable information see: -

London Pacifism and Nonviolence Discussion Group.
London

You don’t have to be a committed pacifist or nonviolentist to join in – meetings are open to anyone interested.
Events usually revolve around a particular topic chosen by participants at an earlier meeting. Anyone taking part can suggest topics for future meetings.

Tuesday 10 July the topic will be PACIFISM AND BORDERS.

In August and September this year, we'll be having a summer break again -
though no doubt pursuing our quest for "the correct line" on pacifism and
nonviolence in other ways...

When we return, on Tuesday 9 October, we'll be revisiting the subject of
NONVIOLENCE AND TAKING SIDES.

If you have ideas of topics you'd like to see discussed in future months, bring your suggestions to one of the monthly meetings, or send them in (e-mail SecondTuesday@groupmail.com).
