The World Is My Country

As part of our project to celebrate the people and movements that opposed the First World War, Peace News has published a series of posters (produced by Emily Johns) and the stories behind them (written by Gabriel Carlyle). Excerpts of four of these are printed below. The posters and accompanying book are available to buy here. For more information, see The World Is My Country.
The posters are been exhibited at Hastings Arts Forum, St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex, 30 October — 11 November 2018.
