Doves in Flak Jackets Special Event

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
