No Glory: The Real History Of World War 1
11 April 2014
Historian Neil Faulkner on the First World War and how political leaders like David Cameron and Michael Gove are trying to rehabillitate as a “just and noble” cause, with the intention of justifying today’s wars.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Friday 1st August 2014
GLASGOW peace activists will defy Tory cheerleading today with a vigil marking a century since the disastrous outbreak of World War I.
PM David Cameron has notoriously described the planned ceremonies as “like the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.”
But Alternative World War I Commemoration Committee chairwoman Isobel Lindsay branded the government’s celebratory tone as “deplorable” in light of the more than one million soldiers killed from Commonwealth nations alone.
“On August 4 Glasgow cathedral will host Commonwealth leaders in commemorating the start of a disastrous war that laid the grounds for the second world war and many of the current problems in the Middle East,” she said.
“This was a failure of statesmanship that sacrificed young lives — not for ‘the war to end wars’ but for a brutal struggle that wasted massive resources and created further violence and instability.”
A six-hour vigil outside Glasgow Cathedral is set to start at 10am.
