Witness for Peace: 2019

Come and meet other young Quakers and attend the silent vigil held the evening before the September DSEi arms fair at the ExCeL centre in East London. DSEi is the world’s biggest arms fairs. For one week every two years, in East London, arms companies display their weapons to buyers (including human rights abusing regimes) from around the world. 

Meeting up

We will attend the silent peace vigil held the evening before the September DSEi arms fair starts. The multi faith peace vigil is organised by Campaign Against Arms Trade, Pax Christi and Quakers. There will be Friends House staff and Friends who campaign for peace at this event.

This is an informal opportunity, parent/s or guardian/s should be happy that the young people attending the event can take responsibility for themselves.

When: Monday 9 September 2019, 6.00pm to 8:00pm

Meet at 6:00pm at Royal Victoria DLR, the peace vigil concludes at 8:00pm at the Excel Centre, London Docklands.

Please wear warm and waterproof clothes as the weather may be wet and/or cold.

It would be very helpful to know who to expect, you can register your interest in joining us for this event by contacting Cat Waithaka at catw@quaker.org.uk
