Yarn Bomb, not real Bombs!
Wool Against Weapons – anti war grassroots campaign – will unroll a 7 mile long knitted Peace Scarf in pink – to draw attention to the Governments proposed £120bn spend to renew Trident, in what will be the biggest anti war demo in recent years.
Thousands of knitters have been joining in from all over the world, in what has been a truly International effort to produce over 11,000 meters of scarf. This will be unrolled between AWE Aldermaston and AWE Burghfield on August 9th 2014.
The scarf will then be repurposed into blankets which will be used for humanitarian aid, including projects in Tanzania, Uganda, Syria, and the U.K.
Wool Against Weapons is supported by CND, Action AWE and Lush Campaigns.
