‘Wool Against Weapons’ A project to link Burghfield and Aldermaston by scarves!! In August.

Each scarf 60cm by 100cm.  Should we repeat our success of the ‘Knitting for Peace’ under Faringdon Town Hall back in the 1980’s when we knitted squares for Oxfam blankets. ?  It was a good photo opportunity!

 ‘We have the fourth largest defence budget in the world’  Phil Hammond , Defence  Secretary.

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.

 Peace Pledge Union is already planning and fundraising for a major project to begin in 2014, ‘a year that will see the beginning of several years of World War One mania’. Lost, unless we succeed, will be the voices of opposition to the war and resistance to conscription by thousands of men’

    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
