Peace News Summer Camp
Peakhill Farm, Theberton, Suffolk IP16 4TG
Peace News Summer Camp, now in its sixth year, helps build a radical movement for the future by creating an inclusive, participatory community today. CAAT will be running a workshop at the camp on Friday 1st August.
In 2014, we’re bringing peace and justice activists from across Europe to help us mark the centenary of the First World War – and to declare peace on the 100th anniversary of the day that Britain declared war on Germany. We will also have workshops and discussions, practical skills sessions, delicious vegan food cooked by Veggies, films, fun and DIY entertainment, a bar, a campfire, and activities and facilities for children and families.

Wool against Weapons from AWE Aldermaston to AWE Burghfield
A day of creative and direct action outside the Atomic Weapons Factories in Berkshire. For two years people have been knitting sections of a seven mile long scarf to stretch between the two sites where the next generation of the UK's nuclear weapons system are being developed.
On 9 August 2014, the scarf will be unveiled - along the fence at AWE Burghfield, along pathways, up trees, past houses and passers by as far as AWE Aldermaston, where there is lots of other fun planned too.

Medway CAAT Meeting

In Spring 2011, UK weapons were used to suppress pro-democracy protests in the Middle East & North Africa. In September, the world's arms industry arrived in the UK for a huge fair continuing their trade, arming repressive regimes and countries at risk of conflict.
