Open meetings are held regularly at 7:00 pm on the first Tuesday of every month
at Hastings Quaker Meeting House, 5 South Terrace, Hastings, TN34 1SA
(behind Priory Meadow car park).
Ground floor - wheelchair accessible - all welcome!
At our next open meeting Hastings Councillor Maya Evans will tell us about her recent trip to Japan
where she took part in a peace walk from Okinawa to Hiroshima, resisting US militarism.
Today the US has 33 bases on the island of Okinawa, a key node in their global operations.
Maya will trace the links between the web of US bases and the worsening war in Afghanistan - a country she has visited 9 times in the past 7 years.
Expect plenty of photos, and funny stories.
7 pm Tuesday 2 October 2018
Entrance free. All welcome.

||Hastings Against War (HAW) was formed in February 2003 in response to the growing threat of a US/UK invasion of Iraq. Since then we have organised countless information stalls, film screenings, talks, and street actions, as well as an art exhibition, benefit concerts and a major conference at the White Rock Theatre - 'Waging War, Making Peace'.|
|We have worked to raise awareness of the human cost of UK/US policies in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, exposing the often hidden facts about civilian casualties and corporate profiteering. We've campaigned against the arms trade which profits from war and against Israel's repression of Palestinians. Each year HAW participates in 'Fly Kites Not Drones', an international event begun by young peace activists in Afghanistan in response to their younger brothers and sisters being too afraid to fly kites because of the threat of drone attacks.||
