Time to Stop War and End the Arms Trade That Supports War
Weds 23 May | 19:30
Sutton Quaker Meeting House
Organised by: Sutton for Peace and Justice »
15 years on from the US led invasion of Iraq its high time that the lessons were heeded and action taken to stop war and the trade in arms that promotes war.
The people of Iraq are still suffering whilst the horrors of war continue to be visited upon countless others, as remote governments repeat failed military adventures and big business reaps the benefits of the trade in arms.
This meeting will bring together three expert speakers to talk of the lasting legacy of the illegal invasion of Iraq, the folly and tragedy of military conflict and the abhorrence of the international arms trade.
Nazli Tarzi – from Tadhamun (solidarity) Iraqi women organization.
Ian Chamberlain – from Stop the War.
Phil Mahon – from the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT).
Come and take part in the debate and join with us as we heed the lessons and commit to work to stop war and control the arms trade.
During this year Sutton for Peace and Justice will be staging a series of events to mark Hiroshima Day, remember the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 and call for an end to war and the trade in arms that promotes war.
