Talk: Humane Behaviour in Time of War

Speakers: Annette Bygott and Mike Lyons


- we will remember them

Germans who had refused to fight Hitler’s war did not feature in the post-war public debate at home or abroad and their stories did not catch the attention of historians until recently. Annette Bygott of Oxford has just finished translating a book which records over 20,000 deserters and war resisters who paid the ultimate price at the hands of the Nazis’ war judges and executioners.

Don't Attack Iran

Speaker: Chris Nineham, Stop the War Coalition.
The drive for a military assault on Iran is gaining ground rapidly, with Britain in the forefront of warmongering actions, such as the stepped-up sanctions announced by the EU in January. As before, the government attempts to justify its intervention with allegations about weapons of mass destruction, as a cover for its geo-political interests and to secure greater control over the region’s wealth, such as oil. At the same time, Britain is pushing for interference aimed at regime change in Syria.
