Remeberance day is just around the corner. The usual red poppy to remember those who have fallen service men and women killed in action in times of conflict and war, is now being accompanied by the white poppy. This new addition symbolises and remembers all the victims of war both past and present, who all too often are forgotten. A white poppy also makes us question the need for war in the first place. To date, over 90% of people killed in warfare are civilians.
‘In wearing white poppies, we remember all those killed in war, all those wounded in body or mind, the millions who have been made sick or homeless by war and the families and communities torn apart. We also remember those killed or imprisoned for refusing to fight or for resisting war.’ Peace Pledge Union.
People who wear white poppies hold a variety of views and opinions and disagree with each other on many subjects. What they share is a desire to remember all the victims of war, to challenge militarism and to stand up for peace.
