A special event marking the 15 anniversary of the anti-war protests surrounding the Iraq war will be held in Stratford on Saturday.

Together for Peace has been organised by the Stratford Labour Women group in collaboration with the Stop the War Coalition.

The event will feature two talks at Stratford Methodist Hall, one from Carmel Nolan about women in anti-war movements and Stop the War’s current campaign, and another from Liz Brandow, sharing her experiences of the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp.

Carmel was one of the original Stop the War press officers who helped organise the London demonstration, which attracted more than two million people, while Liz has been active in the Peace Movement for most of her life.

The talks will be followed by a peace procession to the banks of the Avon to create a peace symbol consisting of white flowers. People attending have been encouraged to bring along photographs of their loved ones for the centre of the art work.

The talks begin at the Methodist Church at 10am with the peace procession to the riverside to begin from the church at 11.45am.
