UP and COMING
The Scottish Peace Network holds monthly peace vigils on the fourth Thursday of every month at 1pm in St Enoch Centre, Glasgow.
In keeping with present Covid-19 restrictions, there will be two half-hour shifts of two people each to hold our NO MORE WARS banner.
Posting Photos for Peace from your homes on that day, in solidarity with the vigil, would be most appreciated.
Dove Tales' next event is at 7pm on Tuesday 25th May and features the life and work of Iyad Hayatleh, a Palestinian poet and translator who was born and grew up in a Palestinian refugee camp in Syria. He started writing poetry early and published his work in Arabic magazines, giving many readings in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen. He has lived in Glasgow since the year 2000.

Iona Youth event
The third Re-Act event is happening on 6th June, 3-5pm, this time looking at Nuclear Disarmament.
’Re-Act’ is a series of conversations led by young people, for young people (16+), providing a chance to reflect and act on inequality and injustice.
This time we will hear from some of our own Iona Community members, telling of their experience and stories of activism and arrest.
We have Rev. Dan Woodhouse, a Methodist Minister who, with their friend Sam, was arrested in 2017 for breaking into the BAE Systems site in Lancashire and damaging warplanes which would have dropped bombs onto Yemen. We’ll also hear from Joe, who works for CND doing Peace Education.
Tickets are available on eventbrite for Young adults aged 16+.
Dove Tales is planning a new project where writers respond to classical songs and arias. We hope to have an online concert in June with the beauty of classical music forming the background to anti-war poems.
CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE ARMS TRADE
CAAT has filed a Judicial Review application into the legality of the UK government’s decision to renew arms sales to the Saudi-led coalition that is bombing Yemen.
