A Celebration of Pat Arrowsmith: the extraordinary peace activist

18 April @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join CND and the LSE Library for a celebration of the life of Pat Arrowsmith, the extraordinary peace campaigner and organiser of the first Aldermaston March in 1958, the single event that most put CND on the public map at this time.

Speakers include:

Steve Bell, Pat’s election agent in 1979 when she ran as an Independent Socialist candidate against the sitting prime minister Jim Callaghan, in Cardiff South and Penarth.

Francie Molloy MP for Mid Ulster, remembering Pat’s longstanding commitment to the struggle for Irish freedom.

Lindsey German, convenor of the Stop the War Coalition, reflecting on Pat’s role as a woman for peace.

Introduced by Kate Hudson; and chaired by Professor Christine Chinkin and Dr Louise Arimatsu.

After the speeches, please join us for a drink to share your memories of Pat and view the current LSE Library exhibition, featuring items from the papers of Pat Arrowsmith.
