Call for action
Gather at Parliament Square, Tuesday 15th February, between 5 and 6 pm, when we’ll head off around town.
Bring a radio. You will be the sound… Weapons of Mass Vibration.
Bring your banners, costumes… whatever you like…
We must show that there is still a peace movement out there. We can express to the people of London that change is not only necessary, but is actually POSSIBLE.
To contribute to the pre-recorded show, e-mail TheRub@Peace-Not-War.org. Send an MP3, an idea, or come to a meeting… Otherwise, show up with a battery-powered Ghetto Blaster (with a RADIO)… ‘would recommend the 12v single rechargeable from Maplins if you can face soldering a couple of wires onto the battery terminals. It’ll last all day and be very useful for picnics in the summer. £7.99 for a big one, sealed, unspillable, not too big, or a fiver for a little one. 12V is the same as 8 little or big 1.5V batteries (8x1.5=12v)!
This might be one of our last opportunities to gather in Parliament Square - a place where we must be heard - as just yesterday the Commons voted for a bill basically saying that we will no longer be allowed to do this.
We must use our freedom of speech while it’s still possible. And we must touch the people…particularly with the forthcoming election.
We are attempting to get the movement mainstream again, to inspire and activate.
The style has been tried and tested at the end of last year when we captivated loads of Central London Christmas shoppers. Everywhere they went they could hear the peaceful vibe and conscious lyrics. And we got wonderful responses. We made an impact.
Please come along. Every single radio makes a difference.
