Uniting behind the message ‘Honour them – promote peace’, Canberra citizens will hold a silent peace vigil across the road from the Australian War Memorial, commencing 10.30 am on Sunday, 11 November. Here are the details.
‘We will’, say the organisers (Medical Association for Prevention of War and others), ‘silently honour those Australians and others who fought in the slaughter of World War 1, and those who did not fight but suffered the war’s consequences. We will remember the many millions of Australians and others, the majority of them civilians, who have suffered since in seemingly countless wars’.
