Derby Peace Week

We are looking forward to Peace Week in September.

The recent events in Afghanistan highlight the need for peace and the UK to stop invading other countries. Our military actions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya have all been disastrous. And, as  Derby’s Peace Week key statements indicate: peace comes with justice and operates at different levels – from community to global.

Derby Peace Week has an exciting programme of events.
