This is an open invitation to members, supporters and friends to come and learn more about the work of Pax Christi, share ideas on peacemaking and be inspired by the peace witness of others, from the First World War to today. Register here
Morning: business matters and reports from the office team and group discussion on ‘good news’ stories of peacemaking
Lunch: please bring food for a shared lunch – drinks will be available
Afternoon: Subversive Peacemakers! A chance to hear the courageous stories of some of the Conscientious Objectors of the First World War through a illustrated and musical presentation offered by Clive Barrett, Chair of the Peace Museum, Bradford. Clive has gathered local stories and examples of the music that inspired CO’s in their struggle. A chance to sing along too!
We bring the theme up-to-date with the present day work of, long-standing peacemaker and founder of the Campaign for the Accountability of American Bases, Lindis Percy.
