The World is My Country

2 October 2014, London: An evening A celebration of the people and organisations that opposed the First World War and took action to stop it. 7.30pm, Torriano Meeting House, 99 Torriano Avenue, NW5 2RX. Hearing Eye in conjunction with Peace News has commissioned poster poems from Alan Brownjohn, Anna Robinson, Krysia Mansfield and Dan Kennedy. They will be performing their works alongside Chloe Mason – the great granddaughter of socialist, pacifist, suffragist and second-hand clothes dealer Alice Wheeldon, imprisoned in 1917 for the alleged attempted murder of Lloyd George – who will also be joining us to talk about the campaign to clear Alice’s name, as well as that of Alice’s daughter Winnie and son-in-law Alfred Mason (who were convicted alongside her).
