Veterans for Peace UK had their largest Remembrance Sunday turnout on 13 November. 68 members of VfP walked behind a banner saying ‘Never Again’ to lay a wreath of white poppies at the Cenotaph in London.

The ceremony was the last piece of a four-day VfP UK gathering which included a public conference, a day-long AGM, and a guided peace walk in central London.

During the conference, a panel discussion on ‘Creating Enemies: Social perspectives’ was addressed by Bilal Ahmed, on Islamophobia in France; Omran Belhadi (Reprieve), on killer drones; and Lena Mohamed (Islamic Human Rights Commission) who explained the government’s Prevent Strategy. www.vfpuk.org
