Stone: Conscientious Objectors

Erection date: 15/5/1994


To all those who have established and are maintaining the right to refuse to kill.
Their foresight and courage give us hope.
This stone was dedicated on 15 May 1994, International Conscientious Objectors Day.
{Around the edge, starting bottom left and finishing bottom right:}
To commemorate men and women, conscientious objectors to military service, all over the world & in every age.

Unveiled by Sir Michael Tippett who was President of the Peace Pledge Union at the time.

This web site contains many war memorials and, important and moving as these are, it seems a good time to focus on those men and women who have stood up against the pressure to go and kill. Also we wanted to draw attention to the high density of memorials in Tavistock Square and its environs. The rarefied academic air, or council policy, we don't know the cause, but there are more than 10 in the garden alone. Click on the Other Memorials button immediately above the map and see the dots.
