We are aiming to get lots of different groups and individuals from around the north to get involved in doing some type of demonstration on one of the 22 days. The 22 days of Waging Peace will begin on 27th December with a demonstration in Manchester city centre, to which everyone is invited.
After that we're asking groups to choose any date (see the website calendar - http://www.targetbrimar.org.uk/?page_id=180) and organise their own event. This could be anything - a vigil, a picket, a blockade, leafleting or petitioning in the local area. Target Brimar will publicise your action, provide legal support and back up, whatever sort of action you decide to do. If any group would like blockading training or legal training, we will endeavour to provide it. Please discuss this with your group or friends and let us know if you think you can do something any day between 27th December and 17th January - check the calendar on the website. But don't worry if someone has chosen the only date you can do - two demos on one day is just fine with us!
We hope that this will ensure that those who lost their lives in Gaza and elsewhere last year, remain in our minds, and that we remember the complicity in those deaths of our own government, military and arms industry. As citizens, we must bear some responsiblity to take action to stop further bombings and deaths.
We also hope that the 22 days will strengthen the anti-war, anti- militarist movement in the north and in Greater Manchester. In this, we can work in our own different ways, but as part of the same campaign, respecting our diversity, building our unity.
