Quakers March For The Alternative

By Sunniva on March 10, 2011

March 26 is the BIG anti-cuts march, which people will be coming to from across the country to march (or do something more exciting) for the alternative to the coalition’s program of cuts.

Meet in front of Westminster Friends Meeting House, 52 St Martins Lane, London, WC2N 4EA at 11 for a 30-minute meeting for worship at 11.30.

Then on to the north side of St Martin in the Fields church on Trafalgar Square for 12.15, to meet up with Church Action on Poverty where there should be a presence from many other churches including Methodists, URC and the Baptist Union.

The contact for the day will be Ruth Tod on 07962 667148 or beforehand for any enquiries on ruth.tod@sky.com<mailto:ruth.tod@sky.com>

Look out for big orange Quakers for Justice banner!

    I welcome the plans for an anti-cuts march, but Friends need also to join in the campaigns for monetary and banking reform, such as Ben Dyson’s Positive Money Campaign (website http://www.positivemoney.org.uk) and ECCR’s work described in the recent “Banks and Society” report (see website http://www.eccr.org.uk). Without serious demands for reform, our marching is little more than the sound of clanging symbols.
