No Pride in War!

 by New Worker correspondent

Last Saturday some marked “Armed Forces Day” with parades and displays glorifying the armed wing of British imperialism. Others, like Veterans for Peace, celebrated the day in their own way in London last weekend
. The veterans’ peace  movement held a counter-recruitment presence outside Charing Cross station Saturday morning before heading off to join other groups under the banner "No Pride in War" to protest the presence of the Red Arrows and BAe Systems at this year’s Pride in London parade.Veterans for Peace UK was set up in 2011 by a former member of the Special Air Service who was discharged after refusing to continuing serving in Iraq. The movement for veterans of the armed forces is committed to opposing all wars through non-violent means.
