The No More War demonstrations of July 28 and 29 1923 were timed to coincide with the anniversary of the outbreak of the ‘Great War.’ 10,000 people were present in Hyde Park at 4pm to hear a resolution on disarmament read out from ten different platforms. Simultaneous demonstrations were held nationally and internationally. The No More War Movement was part of the larger War Resisters’ International.
Processions had converged from all parts of London on the Saturday afternoon. One, organised by Sybil Thorndike, formed on the Thames Embankment. This contingent was an international pageant with representatives from 55 countries bearing national flags. An address by Philip Snowden MP, transmitted from the London Broadcasting Station on Saturday evening, called for people from all countries to raise their voices against war. More than 200 meetings had taken place nationally that weekend.
