Leicester for Peace and Leicester CND invite you to the free screening of War School (dir. Mic Dixon, 2018) A film about the battle for the hearts and minds of Britain’s children and the money that is being spent and the strategies that are being used to entice children into the armed forces. The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A chaired by Dr Helen Dexter. The panel will include: the film's director Mic Dixon, Spike (Veterans for Peace), Joesph Wyglendacz (secretary of the National Education Union) and Sue Taylor (a mother and campaigner). The film reveals how the British government is promoting military values to the public and enticing children into the military.
