THE NEXT EVENT
March 2nd 7.00pm
Standing for Peace in Difficult Times
A Secure Scotland panel event at
Words and Actions for Peace Centre
58 Ratcliffe Terrace EDINBURGH EH9 1ST
A year ago, shortly after the invasion of Ukraine, Secure Scotland hosted a small reflective discussion, lightly moderated by Secure Scotland Core Groups member David Mackenzie under the title ''Standing for Peace in Difficult Times". We tried to share our understanding and consider what steps we might take individually and collectively to better understand and support efforts for building peace rather than waging war.
In consideration of what has happened since, and to follow up on the original conversation, we have invited three panellists to join us in returning to the same theme. Senator Tom Clonan, a former peacekeeper with the Irish army, Dr Lesley Morrison from Medact Scotland, and Marian Pallister, chair of Pax Christi Scotland. The event will again be moderated by David Mackenzie for Secure Scotland. We will invite parliamentarians and other decision-makers to attend, and this is not necessarily a call for protest or mass action, but more an effort to share insights and learn.
Light refreshments will be available
