Faith

Many religious traditions hold peace as central to their belief systems and, for many believers, rejecting militarism and embracing peace is a fundamental part of their spiritual journey. Our spiritual reasons for opposing the arms trade are as diverse as our religious traditions and personal spiritual paths but we come together united by our belief in peace.

Join us on Tuesday 5th September in saying: 'No Faith in War'. This will be a day for people of any faith, or none, to use their spiritual practices and heritage to resist the arms fair non-violently. All are welcome and we hope that everyone will stand in solidarity with each other's actions. It is a day to respect and value what each tradition does to act for peace.
