Monday 4 August is the centenary of the day that Britain declared war against Germany. The No Glory in War campaign will hold an event in Parliament Square to commemorate the 15 million killed in the "war to end all wars", including nearly one million British soldiers, and to say they can best be commemorated by creating a world in which there is no more war.

Join us in Parliament Square and show your opposition to further wars. Hear the truth about the First World War and the protests against it at the time. MPs, actors, historians, campaigners, war veterans and others will be speaking and reading from anti-war authors and activists in 1914-18. German historian Juliene Haubold Stolle and Neil Faulkner, author of pamphlet No Glory - the real history of WW1, will challenge current accounts of the war.

Speakers and performers include:
