International Conscientious Objectors Day
May 15th 2019
Gathering in Sheffield's Peace Gardens to mark International Conscientious Objectors Day.

We will celebrate and raise awareness of those who stand for peace. We will sing a couple of simple songs, and read testimony about conscientious objectors around the world now, as well as marking the efforts of conscientious objectors from the past. We will move on to the Cenotaph in Barkers Pool, where we will lay a wreath of white poppies and conduct a one minute silence.

Sheffield Creative Action for Peace (SCRAP) is a small informal group of people from Sheffield and the Hope Valley. We use creative actions to campaign against the arms trade, nuclear weapons and the military use of drones and to raise awareness of those standing for peace. Contact
