Raising funds to print the Take Action on Militarism resource pack (by ForcesWatch and QPSW) and distribute it widely.

by ForcesWatch in


ForcesWatch and Quaker Peace and Social Witness have developed a resource pack called Take Action on Militarism.

We want to get the pack out, free of charge, far and wide. We need to raise funds to help us do this.

The pack provides an overview of recent militarisation in the UK, tips and ideas for action, and case studies from groups and individuals who have challenged militarism in their communities.

It looks at militarism in different areas of society, including in education, at public events, around Remembrance, with the increase in cadet forces and recruitment activities, and the arms trade.

See the new Take Action on Militarism website.

The pack is being launched in London on Saturday 21 October at a day of talks and workshops. Participants will hear from some of the amazing local groups and individuals who are working to challenge militarism in the UK.
