Take action

 

Join with us and support our work for peace

Whatever your experience, you can play a part in pacifist campaigns.

Take action in everyday life:

  • Mention your support for peace to your friends, your family, at work, at college, in the pub...
     
  • Wear a white poppy at Remembrance time, symbolising remembrance for all victims of war and a commitment to peace; you can order them online

Take action online:

  • Please sign to call on the COP26 summit to end the exemption that allows military carbon emissions not to be counted in targets for carbon reduction.
     
  • Add your name to a petition urging the Three Counties Showground in Malvern not to host an arms fair in November.
     
  • Email your MP to call for an end to arms sales and military support from the UK to Saudi Arabia and other countries involved in the war in Yemen.
     
  • If you live in the Cardiff area or have connections with it, email Cardiff Council's leaders to urge them not to sell off Britannia Park to a military museum.
     
  • Get active on social media! You can follow the PPU on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Promote peace and chat with your fellow PPU members and supporters.

Take action locally:

  • Find out if there are local peace campaigns in your area, or in your university, trade union or faith group. If not, we can help you start one!
     
  • Write to your local paper or call a radio phone-in to express your concerns. We’re happy to provide advice.
     
  • Sell white poppies in your community, workplace, school, university, faith group or trade union branch. 
     
  • Invite a PPU speaker to your local group or community.

Take action nationally:

Take action internationally: 

  • Sign up to receive CO Alerts, so you can offer support to conscientious objectors and peace activists around the world who are facing imprisonment.
     
  • Support the campaigns of War Resisters' International, which unites pacifists around the world (the PPU is the British section).
