white poppy

The overwhelming majority of suffering and death brought about by war is borne by civilians: ordinary children, women and men.

The White Poppy symbolises the belief that there are better ways to resolve conflicts than killing strangers.
From economic reliance on arms sales (Britain is the world’s second largest arms exporter) to maintaining manifestly useless nuclear weapons Britain contributes significantly to international instability. The outcome of the recent military adventures highlights their ineffectiveness in today’s complex world.
Now 90 years after the end of the ‘war to end all wars’ we still have a long way to go to put an end to a social institution, which in the last decade alone killed over 10 million children.
