Description

HIP HIP HOORAY  COME AND CELEBRATE WITH WILPF WOMEN WORLDWIDE
 
It is not often that women peace activists have something magnificent to celebrate but on Monday evening Scottish Wilpf is going to celebrate the passing of the UN Nuclear Ban Treaty
and the presentation in Oslo of the Nobel Peace Prize to ICAN. 
 
Just imagine if peace building was popular how big this celebration would be!   But until it is, let us join together to celebrate in the hope that one day everyone will be celebrating.
 
So, do come along to:
Serenity Cafe, Jackson's Entry, Edinburgh, EH8 8PJ, on Monday 11th at 6.15 pm  
 
Meet Janet Fenton - hear what it was like to work on the UN Open-ended Working Group. Learn about the work of the WILPF project REACHING CRITICAL WILL.
Find out what it is like to lobby government delegates in UN forums in New York.  
 
Bring your friends,  partners, husbands, cousins, neighbours and celebrate.  Take one night off from anxiety about UK politics and celebrate UN progress toward a nuclear ban.
 
Feel free to bring nibbles, balloons etc.
 
Hope to see you Monday 11th  December 2017
 
Bring cameras, take photos and tweet about the event.
