1916 – 2016
Military Service Act came in to force on March 2nd 1916. As a result many brave conscientious objectors ended up in Jail.
Next Wednesday [ March 2nd at 11.00. ] there will be an event to honour these men outside of Walton Jail in Liverpool.
That is where many of those brave men were incarcerated.
This includes people such as Fenner Brockway.
The event will involve a reading of the names of COs who were held in Walton jail, and some of the many WW1 COs from the Merseyside area.
After that there will be a brief name reading of just a few of the many COs who are currently held in prison throughout the world
This will be a unique event.
Please lets others know about it and come to it if you can.
