Borders Amnesty supports Peace Pilgrimage

About The Pilgrimage

The 2013 Pilgrimage for Peace and Economic Justice has its origins in an Inter-Faith Service for Justice and Peace held at Hexham Abbey, Northumberland in January 2012, organised by Northumbrians for Peace, and SCANA (Scottish Clergy Against Nuclear Arms)'s second annual Easter Week Act of Witness outside the gates of the Faslane naval base in March 2012.

A primary aim of the 2013 Pilgrimage is to focus national public attention on the Government’s proposal to spend up to £100 billion renewing the Trident nuclear missile system, while continuing to slash NHS, education and social welfare budgets, including vital financial support for some of our most vulnerable and disadvantaged people and communities across the UK.

The pilgrims will be staying in Newstead Village Hall on Wednesday 5th June and the Quaker Meeting House on Thursday 6th June.  You are welcome to join them along the way, or you can offer support along the route by being available to pick up tired or injured walkers as they pass through your area.  You can tell everyone you know about the Pilgrimage; it is open to all.

See the attached flier for more information about their route through the Borders.
