International Conscientious Objectors' Day - Wokingham

All are welcome to attend this commemoration of CO Day in Wokingham.

Event description from the organisers:

There will be a commemoration of ICO day in Howard Palmer Gardens, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG40 2BX on 15 May 2024 at 12.30 – 13.30.

We will remember those around the world, past and present, who resisted killing others and face(d) persecution and imprisonment and death as a consequence.

There will be periods of silence interspersed with short readings of poetry and prose, including the experiences of objectors themselves.

It will follow closely the ceremony as held in Tavistock Gardens every year, with white flowers laid in memory of COs.

People of all faiths, and none, are invited to bring their own short readings, including perhaps those writings of relatives or friends who have resisted armed conflict in the past or present.
Please contact David Chapman if you would like to contribute:

May 15th, 2024 from 12:30 PM to  1:30 PM
