100 years since Britain declared war
Join No Glory on WW1 centenary
Wear white poppies. Use Twitter hashtag #NoMoreWar
Monday 4 August is the centenary of the day that Britain declared war against Germany. The No Glory in War campaign will hold an event in Parliament Square to commemorate the 15 million killed in the "war to end
all wars", including nearly one million British soldiers, and to say they can best be commemorated by creating a world in which there is no more war.
Join us in Parliament Square and show your opposition to further wars.
Hear the truth about the First World War and the protests against it at the time. MPs, actors, historians, campaigners, war veterans and others will be speaking and reading from anti-war authors and activists in
1914-18. German historian Juliene Haubold Stolle and Neil Faulkner, author of pamphlet No Glory - the real history of WW1, will challenge current accounts of the war.
Speakers and performers include:
Lindsey German Stop the War Coalition • Kate Hudson CND • Juliene Haubold
Stolle German historian • Neil Faulkner author of pamphlet No Glory
