Walk of Witness

 Registration is closed for this event
A walking vigil to witness at Central London locations associated with the Arms Trade.

We will meet at the Friends House garden, gather from 1:30 for a 2pm start.  There will be room at Friends House to leave bags and a small space for those needing a bit of quiet before we begin, but if there are lots of us we will need to mainly gather in the front garden.

There will be a period of worship and reflection early on, then a longer section of walking, followed by short vigils at several arms company headquarters.  If you'd like to join the vigils but think the longer walk may be inaccessible for you, get in touch to arrange to meet us: hello@quaker-roots.org.uk

We will bring postcards, letting people know why we are gathering, and will be reading testimony from those affected by the arms trade. Feel free to bring your own placards and signs.

We will finish between 4:00 and 4:30pm. After the walk, a group of us may travel together to the vigil at the Excel in the evening.

Many thanks to London CAAT for devising the walk, and sharing the details with us.
