The Hands Up For Peace Banner at the anti-war demonstration in Hyde Park during activities in Iraq. On that day over 200 hands were made by young people on the demo and added to our own collection.

Images of citizenship workshops coming soon...

 

These two photographs are from the 'Peace Not War' Festival in the Hackney Ocean, at which Hands Up For... exhibited. As can be seen from the images, we decorated the cinema room, in which a series of anti war films and documentaries were shown. We covered the walls in almost 2,000 handprints, and displayed the hands on sticks around the stairwell and balcony of the room. Again our collection grew as festival-goers added their hands to our walls of hands.

Here we also had a show of hands from one Hackney primary school where we have been working to teach the alternative citizenship curriculum - on subjects including the war, top up fees, the NHS and equipment for schools.
