Take Action on Militarism Gathering

21 October 2017, London

Want to make a response to militarism in your schools or community? Come to an action-orientated day for upskilling, planning, learning and meeting some inspiring people from around the UK.

You'll hear from some of the amazing local groups who are working to challenge militarism around the UK, from the coalition of national organisations countering militarism, and from leading academics.

There will then be an afternoon of two concurrent workshops, run twice so you can attend both. One will be training on media and social media, and the other will be an opportunity to develop your local campaigns.

Morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided (but please book your free place so we know numbers), and there is a café in Friends House where you can buy lunch.

Quaker Peace & Social Witness (QPSW) and ForcesWatch have joined together to produce a pack on taking action on militarism in the UK. It includes tips and ideas for action, background information and case studies. It will be launched at this October national gathering.

Tickets are free - but if you would like to donate to ForcesWatch's work, follow this link: and thank you for your support!
