April 24, Kaikohe

Commemoration, Peace Embassy and Film – ANZAC Day Commemoration to remember together world wars, and all past and present wars – the tragedy of so many people killed, maimed, raped, orphaned or lost children, lost homes and lost hope. Let us encourage national mourning for ALL those damaged by war. Let us not encourage present warfare while we are in mourning. A Peace Embassy with white poppies and information, free Soup & Homemade Breads. From 10am, at 1pm we will watch a DVD together: Field Punishment #1, about 14 NZ conscientious objectors in WW1. This is not in opposition to the usual ANZAC Day commemoration, more to enhance it by promoting peace. Nau Mai, Haere Mai – All Welcome. Hosted by Hokianga Catholic Workers on Tuesday, 24 April, Broadway, Kaikohe (at the old Hammer Hardware store, almost opposite ANZ Bank), RSVP at https://www.facebook.com/events/1697997743609136
