Thursday 4 June

For the first time we decided to mark the International Day for the Child Victims of War.  We displayed our Brighton and Hove banner and one that had been painted for the occasion.  People walking  from the rail station to the seafront could see our banners, leaflets and the kaffir scarf we’d put on the ground with the clothes of small children on top to represent the child victims of armed conflict.  People spoke with us and some took leaflets.  Although we spent just one hour marking this day, we felt it had been worth doing to raise the issue of the child victims of armed conflict.
