UK: Veterans for Peace speak out on Remembrance Sunday

War veterans representing the organisation Veterans for Peace (VFP) laid red and white Remembrance Day poppies at the Cenotaph in Central London on Sunday. «I wear two poppies now: one to remember my fallen comrades — which is the red poppy, and the white poppy to remember everybody else,» said one veteran, Micheal Elston, adding, «I actually wanted it to mean more, to actually work for world's... Еще peace.» The group of veterans carried a banner reading «Never Again» as they made their way to the war memorial. One of the attendees, Simone Bell, admitted that he is marching «against all war» adding that in his view «war is an aberration» and a «failure of being human.» VFP UK was founded in London in 2011, as an organisation made up of servicemen and women who are promoting a message of peace through exposing the costs of conflict, as well as informing the public on the true causes of war. Remembrance Day is observed on the 11th November every year and marks the anniversary of the end of the First World War.
