For all those activists that worked hard, stood out loud and proud, or fought the battle silently. Those who supported from the sidelines to help others do their work, those who were killed, imprisoned or murdered for the cause.
This is a roll to remember our activists who have died, the loud and proud, the quiet, the powerful, the local, the national, – well, we know who they are… here is a chance to keep them part of our history.
Email your remembrance in the comments box below and it will be added in as soon as possible. To all those who fought for peace, we will carry the flame forward.
