Anti-war remembrance

This year it looks as if remembrance day on November 9 will be more of a gala to celebrate militarism than a serious attempt to honour the dead and take stock of the damage done by WW1. As Lindsey German outlines, the red poppy has become appropriated by an establishment keen to create the atmosphere in which it can pursue current wars more freely.

On Saturday Stop the War co-hosted with No Glory an excellent One Hundred Years of War conference which aimed to be a counterblast to attempts to rehabilitate WW1 as a necessary war. Videos of key sessions will be on the website soon.

In the meantime we are asking all our supporters to do everything possible to promote the anti-war message in the run up to Remembrance Day.

Please send reports of all activity and event listings to the website.
