Resisting militarism this summer

Join us as we share ideas and make plans for a summer of resistance to militarism. The next few months will include Armed Forces Day, three arms fairs in the UK and increased military recruitment on the streets as Covid restrictions ease. Military spending is on the rise and the proposed Police Bill threatens our freedom to protest about all this. There has never been a better time to take a stand against militarism!

The Peace Pledge Union's next online event for members and supporters will be held on Tuesday 22 June, 6.30 – 8.30pm.

Everyday militarism looks likely to be even more visible in the UK over the coming months: Armed Forces Day takes place on 26 June, followed by the Three Counties arms fair in Malvern on 7-8 July, the DSEI arms fair in London in September and the DPRTE arms fair in Farnborough in October. Meanwhile, we expect armed forces recruitment stands to be more visible on the streets again as Covid restrictions ease. Military spending is on the rise, military visits to schools continue throughout the UK and the proposed Police Bill threatens to stifle our freedom to protest against all this.

But wherever there is militarism, there will be resistance!

We invite PPU members and allies to join us for the third in a series of events aimed at equipping ourselves and each other with skills and ideas for challenging everyday militarism and campaigning for change. Our aim is that this event will be helpful and relevant to you whether or not you attended either of the first two events in March and April.

The event is free to attend.
