Sunday 27 August: People and Planet
The exhibition at the Imperial War Museum ‘People Power: Fighting for Peace’ about the history of the peace movement, ends on 28 August.

Tuesday 5 September: Arms Fair art protest
Quakers are among faith communities witnessing against the arms fair, which takes place in Docklands from 12-15 September. There will be a Quaker meeting for worship near the ExCel Centre at 11am. During the arms fair there will be an art exhibition in the neighbourhood, and you are invited to show your support for the protest by sending art works about the arms trade to the exhibition. More details from the Quaker Arts Network website, or email hello@artthearmsfair.org. During Yearly Meeting Gathering, we also started a community craft project to make white poppies to be displayed at ‘Art the Arms Fair’ and then sold in aid of Campaign Against Arms Trades. This is something that you can do to show your support even if you can’t get to the protests. Rhiannon has more details, and if anyone would like to meet as a group to make white poppies please let her know.
