Naming of the Dead ceremonies, Sat 22 Aug in Hackney and Mon 17 Aug at the Cenotaph
Hackney Stop the War will be holding a Naming of the Dead ceremony next Saturday 22 August at 1.30pm outside the Kingsland Shopping Centre, Kingsland High Street, E8 (opposite Dalston Kingsland Station).
Over 200 British soldiers have now died in Afghanistan. This is a terrible waste of life in an unjustifiable and unwinnable war. Most people agree that it's time to bring the troops home.
Please join us to commemorate the soldiers who have died - and the tens of thousands of Afghan civilians who have also died so needlessly.
To commemorate all the soldiers who have died, Stop the War will hold a Naming of the Dead ceremony at The Cenotaph in Whitehall at 12 noon on Monday 17 August, when we will read out all 200 names, together with the names of Afghan civilians to represent the tens of thousands who have also died so needlessly.
Stop the War is asking those who can attend to bring flowers if possible.
