Peace campaigners accused of ‘indoctrinating’ children, as teaching union promotes white poppy scheme

Peace campaigners have been accused of “indoctrinating” children, after Britain’s largest teaching union promoted a scheme to sell white poppies ahead of Remembrance Sunday.

The Peace Pledge Union (PPU), a pacifist organisation, will this week formally launch a new campaign for schools across the country to endorse white poppies.

It comes after the PPU exhibited for the first time at this year’s National Union of Teachers (NUT) conference, where it signed up over 100 teachers to its inaugural teacher network.

    Pacifism is irrationally immoral and has never been shown to work in the face of actual evil.
    It hands everything over to the first violent psychopath that comes along.

    Disgusting women trying to erase men’s sacrifices from history.

    Where are the black poopies and the darker petalled poppies. What we’re seeing here is one more example of a deliberate exclusion to poppies of another color to the benefit of whites. /sarc

      And where does the money that goes to white poppies go to? Is there any audited detailed financial statement?
