Wreath for victims of the arms trade

Royal Victoria Dock, London. Tue 12 Sep 2017



  Reverend Sister Yoshie Maruta from Milton Keynes and Reverend Gyoro Nagase, the guardian of the Battersea Peace Pagoda

 The ELAAF wreath 'Remember the Victims of the Arms Trade'

 

 

 The procession moves off around Royal Victoria Dock

 An ELAAF supporter holds their banner on the Silvertown Flyover as the procession goes past

 

 Two people carried large 'Peace' flags

 

 They stop where they can see the ExCeL centre with a line of warships in front of it

 

 and after a brief ceremony

 float the wreath on the water of Royal Victoria Dock

 

 where it floats away

 The group observe a silence in memory of those killed by the arms sold at previous arms fairs here and for

 those who will be killed and maimed by those now being sold

 

 Reverend Sister Yoshie Maruta and Reverend Gyoro Nagase pray and drum

 

 

 

 and pose for a photograph with another Buddhist

 and the wreath continues to float on the dock

with warships and the ExCeL centre where the arms fair is taking place in the background
