Description

 

 

Scottish CND is happy to support and promote Iona - London Pilgrimage, an ecumenical act of witness for peace and economic justice. 

The pilgrimage set out from the island of Iona at Pentecost on Sunday, 19th of May and will arrive in London on July 20th at the Houses of Parliament. It will promote peace and nuclear disarmament. 

The Pilgrimage has been broken down into sections of approximately 10 -15  miles, so that anyone wishing to support can come along and join it just for an hour or two, a day or more. 

There will be numerous opportunities as the Pilgrimage passes trough for local churches and other groups to generate discussion regarding the justification of Trident’s renewal and other issues of social al economic justice. 

The pilgrimage website is justpeacepilgrimage.com They are also on Facebook and Twitter @justpeace2013

The walkers can be contacted directly on 07780939199.
