Killer May a ‘hypocrite’ for laying wreath to war dead

Saturday 11th November 2017

PEACE campaigners have criticised Theresa May for planning to lay a wreath tomorrow in memory of Britain’s war dead while her government’s policies continue to fuel armed conflict.

The Peace Pledge Union (PPU) warned that while Remembrance Sunday is being marked in this country, Saudi forces using British-made weapons and trained and advised by British troops could be killing children in Yemen.

The group will hold an alternative remembrance ceremony close to Whitehall, where a wreath of white poppies will be laid to remember all victims of war — including civilians — of every nationality.

The event will include a speech by pacifist Sam Walton, who was recently found not guilty of criminal damage after he tried to disarm warplanes bound for use against Yemen by the Saudi military.

PPU co-ordinator Symon Hill said: “Ministers talk of remembering the horrors of war while presiding over one of the largest military budgets in the world, ploughing billions into the renewal of nuclear weapons and recruiting vulnerable 16-year-olds into the UK armed forces.

“Remembering those who have died and suffered in war should lead us to learn from the past, to challenge militarism and to take action for peace.”

Some 97,500 white poppies have been sold this year, with sales over the last four years higher than in any year since of the peace symbol was introduced in 1933.

The PPU’s alternative Remembrance Sunday ceremony will take place at noon tomorrow in Tavistock Square, central London, a short walk from the official ceremony at the Cenotaph.
