Since the last meeting:

28 April  The Peace Group Ramblers had an enjoyable day, walking from  Burford to Widford and then a  ‘traipse’ round the town.  Phil explained a little about the Levellers, early campaigners  for democracy and equality, who were shot by Cromwell for their pains.  Thank you Phil and Dave for  the organisation.

There are plans for a visit to the Sandham Memorial Chapel to view Stanley Spencer’s paintings of WW1/short walk on ‘Watership Down’/and Greenham Peace Garden

(Still) pending…..a meeting of those who want to meet with Ed VaizeyMP to discuss Trident (and other matters, to be decided) (Would anyone like to co-ordinate this?).

We may not win by protesting. But if we don’t protest we will lose. If we stand up to them there’s always a chance that we will win’. Hetty Bower. Hetty died recently at the age of  108  after a lifetime of protest. We met her last  year at the ‘April Fool’s Day’  protest at Aldermaston.

    In 1975 Morocco invaded Western Sahara, and is still in occupation, oppressing the Saharawi. The length of the wall that splits Western Sahara into two is 2500km . This wall is also the longest and most dangerous wall all over the world, dividing Saharaui families, it has more than 9 000 000 antipersonal mines spread all over it (300 meters both sides) -  according to the Pentagon. 120 000 thousand soldiers are vigilating it with tanks, heavy artillery, and the worst of all is that the world never hears about this anachronism. There is another wall of silence we absolutely need to break. More info: www.wsahara.org.uk
