If you want a white peace poppy flower added to your picture like I did just ask Claudio Marty to doctor you one up and submit the finished product to these organizations:
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.
- Order and wear your white peace poppy. Take a picture of yourself wearing it and send it in to our online peace gallery
- Pass them on to friends and workmates
- Join one of the anti war remembrance events listed on the No Glory in
War web site
- Organise a public stall this Saturday to sell white poppies
to end the bombing of Iraq.
