For the fourth year in a row, members of Marrickville Peace Group have made their own, special contribution to the official Armistice Day event. This year, six stood in solemn vigil outside the cordon surrounding the service at the Cenotaph in Martin Place. Each displayed the Quaker slogan “HONOUR THE WAR DEAD BY ENDING WAR!”.
Members of MPG attended the Cenotaph in Martin Place for the Remembrance Day service on November 11, 2017. They displayed a banner saying ‘Honour the War Dead by Ending War!’ and distributed a flyer to explain why they were there. There was a generally positive response, but some of the military community clearly resented our presence and our message. Another photo.
