P-04-656 Establishing a Conscientious Objectors Day in Wales

This petition was submitted by CO’s Day Cymru/Wales, having collected approximately 400 paper signatures.


Petition wording:

We, the Undersigned, strongly urge the Welsh Assembly to establish an officially recognised Conscientious Objectors’ Day in Wales. This would be a fitting memorial to all those who suffered during that conflict and especially to those who stood in the Welsh tradition of peace-making at great personal cost. Wales would be the first country to have done this and may, thereby, prompt others to consider acting similarly.

Business type: Petition

Reason considered: Senedd Business;

Status: For consideration
