Doves in Flak Jackets
Journeymen Theatre in association with Stourbridge Palestine support Group
Saturday January 21st 2017
The idea for this day came about as a group of us searched for an appropriate response to the inauguration of Donald Trump as USA President on Friday January 20th.
We are staging a day of anti-war and anti-militarisation events at Stourbridge Quaker Meeting House, Scotts Road, Stourbridge from 2 pm through to 9pm.
The programme is:
2pm- Clare Short, former MP for Birmingham Ladywood and former Secretary of State for international Development, speaking on the arms trade, arms proliferation and the British Government’s relationship with Israel.
2.45- Performance of Over the Top by Journeymen Theatre. This short play examines the increasing role of militarisation in our education system.
3.30-Veterans for Peace UK, describing their work and campaigning to reveal the hidden stories behind the increased emphasis on the military in society
4.30-CATT and Stop Arming Israel, an interactive discussion led by long-standing Peace Activist and Peace Campaigner, Chris Groves
Soup and Cheese Supper
