Sit For Peace
Wake Up at the Arms Fair
On Tuesday 5th of September Wake Up London (Young adults Plum Village) will be joining the Interfaith Day of Action to raise awareness around the issue of arms trading, something that sadly is still a part of our world.
During that week at the Excel centre in London many individuals caught in the business of war will be present.
Together with many other activist groups we will gather on site uniting around our belief in peace.
We’ll be sitting from 10.15 – 10.45 please bring something to sit on and signs and banners are welcome The day continues after with many vigils, prayers and talks from other groups – open to all. There will also be a shared lunch at 1.15.
We will meet outside the Prince Regent DLR/Bus station – at 9.30 and walk down together-
if you arrive later please look here on the event page and we will update it where the sit will be.
(It will be a short walk from the meeting place outside the Excel Centre)
”To work for peace is to uproot war from ourselves and from the hearts of men and women. To prepare for war, to give millions of men and women the opportunity to practice killing day and night in their hearts, is to plant millions of seeds of violence, anger, frustration, and fear that will be passed on for generations to come. When we know peace in ourselves and share it with the world, we know peace is possible” Thich Nhat Hanh
