2020 Objects of Peace: Maureen McDonnell Photographs
The Peace Museum has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help build The Peace Museum of the Future. As part of the campaign 20 ambassadors have chosen an object from our collection to talk about its importance in the history of peace and why it is significant to them.
Sue Easterbrook from Bradford CND and Bradford Women in Black peace group has chosen a photograph by Maureen McDonnell.
“Bradford is a place of peaceful protest and activism, where people of all ages are willing to stand up against injustice and war.
I chose this photograph of an anti-War on Terror protest in Leeds because it captures the intergenerational nature of campaigning for peace. I took my young children to marches against the invasion of Iraq in 2003, 17 years later they are grown women and sadly all three of us are still protesting against military and economic interference in the Middle East.”
