White Flag Call

White FlagDuring our stay at Occupy Menwith Hill, our plan is to mark the Global Day of Action Against Military Spending with all kinds of beautiful, creative and funny gestures to the oil hungry warmongering powers that be.

For one of them, we need everyone’s help…

We want to surround Menwith Hill’s perimeter fence with hundreds, hopefully thousands of white flags, as a poetic gesture of peace and unity. We’re raising a ‘white flag call’ around the word and asking people everywhere to send us their messages of peace and solidarity… their favourite quotes… their hopes for the future.

Please spread the word and leave your messages below… we’ll write every one on a white flag and make them a part of our poetic protest.
