Processions, demonstrations and meetings took place nationally and internationally on Saturday 29 July 1922 to demand ‘No more war’. In London, the demonstration was organised jointly by Labour organisations, nonconformist churches, and other societies. One procession started on the Embankment, went along Whitehall, and joined with another at Trafalgar Square. It then marched slowly past the Cenotaph where flowers were laid. A banner bore the words ‘Salutation to the fallen; never again.’ The processions continued to Hyde Park, where thousands gathered to hear speakers from several platforms.
Demonstrations were also held in Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Cardiff, Bristol, Newcastle, among other places. It was reported that at Lancaster twelve tableaux represented ‘The Passing of the Reign of Force,’ and at Cudham, Kent, the children taking part were dressed in costumes representing the different nations. In France the League Men’s Rights, with a membership of 100,000, organised demonstrations, and in America the National Council for the Reduction of Armaments was the main organising body. In Germany 15 national organisations co-operated and demonstrations also took place in Austria. The No More War Movement was part of the larger War Resisters’ International.
