We need words and actions to make the changes that can create peaceful sustainable changes in the world, and both are needed to share the news of what is happening. Actions can be campaigning and lobbying on the big issues or about things that are needed in the community. Words can communicate ideas, help you stand up for yourself and others and learn, and they can be written or spoken or even sung.
Words and Actions for Peace at 58 Ratcliffe Terrace, Edinburgh EH9 1ST is a gallery, and an exhibition or events venue, which is providing a home for two organisations committed to peace and sustainability, Peace and Justice Scotland, and also Secure Scotland. Both can be contacted there by individuals and groups who share their outlook and need a space to meet or work. Resources offered at Words and Actions for Peace to people or groups include storage and equipment, somewhere warm for individuals and community groups, and a wee bit of peace-related retail. We offer Associate posts to students and graduates, and we welcome interest from volunteers.

EXHIBITION OPENS 28 JULY 6.00 p.m. – 8.00 p.m. ALL WELCOME
The Dawn of The Anthropocene
– Hiroshima 1945 –
28 July – 17 August
Peace & Justice and Secure Scotland jointly present this exhibition of images from the Hiroshima Peace Museum and the International Campaign for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons (ICAN). As partner organisations in ICAN, we work towards the abolition and elimination of all nuclear weapons everywhere through the UN Treaty for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons. The exhibition uses imagery and Japanese text from 1945 to communicate the devastation and appalling cruelty of the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, with the narrative of hope for the future of people and the planet that the 2017 Treaty can offer, and how Scotland can contribute.
