Antifash Friends  

I did a callout for Quakers to witness at last Saturday's fascist march in London and 18 folks turned out from several meetings in London and from further afield too. I often do activism, but this was the first time I'd felt called to witness. The support from Friends was terrific including Friends House promoting the action on social media. I couldn't get ahold of the 'Quakers for Peace' banner from Friends House, but happily I was offered the use of the lovely banner from my local meeting Forest Hill. We found a nice sunny spot in front of Parliament and had a great meeting for worship while people ran around us, photographed us and set placards on fire nearby. We got lots of photographer attention and even an audio interview.

Me with the wind having blown the banner over me!
