Stone: Conscientious Objectors

Inscription

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.

Chosen as the featured memorial in June 2004. 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, having recently added two 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 nine in the garden alone. Click on the Memorial Map link and see the dots.
