Stop the War vigil for Ukraine,

Aug 13th, Sept 17th, Oct 15th, Nov 12th

Outside Berwick Guild Hall, Saturday, 12pm

Dear friends and supporters,

We are calling for a Stop the War group to meet every Saturday at 12 – 1pm, outside Berwick Town Hall. 

It may not be possible to commit to every Saturday but if you could commit to one Sat each month, first, second, third or fourth, we should have a presence every week. If you can’t make the full hour, then you’re welcome to come and stand with us for a short time.  

We are calling for the immediate withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine and solidarity with the Ukrainian people. We’re calling for no NATO escalation/intervention which we believe will only prolong and widen the conflict and cause greater suffering. The situation is changing rapidly, and we must be prepared for arguments over the UK’s response. 

Initiated by Kate, Keith, Paul & Phil
