Making war history

For 15 years, local peace activist and anti-war campaigner, Chris Coverdale has dedicated his life to getting local and central government to obey and enforce the laws of war. Here, he confronts HOT readers with some of the agonising questions and dilemmas facing conscientious taxpayers and makes a heartfelt appeal to everyone – to do what they can to end war

History of peace movement in the spotlight

With conflict so often hitting the headlines, it is heartening to be reminded that over the last 100 years or so individuals, whether acting on their own or collectively, have consistently and often creatively campaigned against war and for peace. With this in mind, Ann Kramer, author of two books on conscientious objectors, went to see People Power: Fighting for Peace, an exhibition on peace campaigners at London’s Imperial War Museum.
