Peace History Conference 2017: Protest Power & Change
Protest, Power & Change is the theme of the 2017 Peace History Conference, which is organised by MAW in partnership with Imperial War Museums. The Conference takes place on Saturday 10th June in London, with other events (Peace Trail, Play) on Friday 9th - see below.

Frank Cottrell Boyce, childrens novelist and screenwriter, will open the conference.  Among topics on the programme will be Fewer Bombs, More Jobs: The Lucas Aerospace Combine Shop Stewards Alternative Plan 1976 and Lysistrata in the Rainforest: the womens nonviolent campaign which ended the civil war in Liberia.

Other sessions pick up on the anniversaries of 2017.  It is 50 years since Martin Luther Kings momentous denunciation of the Vietnam War, 60 years since activists started coalescing into the movement that became CND, 150 years since the births of anti-war artist K├Ąthe Kollwitz and feminist peace campaigner Emily Greene Balch, and 500 years since Erasmus published his Complaint of Peace.

PHC 2017 is timed to coincide with the exhibition People Power: Fighting for Peace at IWM London, making a visit doubly worthwhile.  (Exhibition ends 28 August.) The Museum is the venue for the Saturday conference, with additional events on Friday 9 June - an afternoon walk along the London Peace Trail (starts 3.30pm from
Tavistock Square) and at 7.30pm the acclaimed play This Evil Thing,
performed by Michael Mears, which tells the story of First World War
Conscientious Objectors.  (The play will be at Oasis Hub Waterloo, 1a Kennington Road SE1 7QP.)
