2014 04 – Against Glorifying World War One

Campaign Against Glorification of World War One

In 2014, Stop the War, No Glory and a range of peace organisations are organising meetings, debates and cultural events to mark the First World War centenary.

We oppose the attempt by David Cameron, Michael Gove and others to use the centenary to “celebrate” a slaughter that killed 15 million people as a “just” and “noble” cause.

Here is our calendar of events organized by Stop the War and other organisations. The latest events will be updated on the Stop the War web site. Full details of each event can be obtained by clicking on the links below.
