Anti-war and peace groups across the country, from London to   
Liverpool, from Edinburgh to Bridport, from Bath to Hastings, are   
organising events over the Remembrance Day weekend, 11-13   
November, seeking to break the link between Remembrance Day and   
the culture of militarisation that glorifies war and uses the	
past dead to justify current wars.

There are vigils, naming the dead events, white poppy wreath   
ceremonies, distribution of white poppies (available from the	
Stop the War Coalition office: Tel: 020 7801 2768)

more places are added in the next few days, go to:
