Resist Armed Forces Day (around the UK)

Armed Forces Day will be celebrated around the UK, whipping up support for war by the back door and giving children the impression that violence and obedience are something to be admired. There will be protests, vigils and alternative events to challenge war and militarism.

Armed Forces Day is about fuelling support for war and everyday militarism. It has little or nothing to do with providing help for veterans, who need a decent welfare state, not a celebration of militarism.

Thankfully, Armed Forces Day will not go unchallenged. The Peace Pledge Union is working with other anti-militarist groups to support local protests and other events, as well as to challenge the Armed Forces Day National Event, which will this year take place in Scarborough.

If you are organising a protest, vigil or other event in your area, or would like advice on doing so, please contact the PPU at or on 020 7424 9444.
