Yesterday FoR marched with thousands of other activists, students, retirees and changemakers to protest about President Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK. The atmosphere was lively with mass produced and handmade placards sharing a desire for hope and change. The Fellowship of Reconciliation (FoR) marched with the Quaker Social Witness (QSW) and pacifist and author Tim Gee.
Our call wasn’t just to the streets of London. Supporters around the country joined with other religious leaders in vigils and their own local protests.
It is important for us as a Fellowship of Reconciliation to continue to spread messages of togetherness and unity in the name of Jesus. As we walked in solidarity yesterday, we held banners celebrating the goodness of God.
We felt it was important to be out on the streets because ultimately, we believe that ‘In a world broken by violence and conflict we are called to be peacemakers’
In peace and solidarity,FoR
