See below for flavour of Twitter reaction to the white poppy position:

 

“.. because a white wreath alone may itself cause conflict, and hurt & offence to some, and those who sell red poppies also wish to end wars, we will lay two attached wreaths, one red, one white, to convey the complexity of this deep issue…” – Bath Local Meeting minute

It’s hard to get this symbolism right. Our white poppy wreath has been repeatedly moved or stolen in previous years. But we deplore militarism and are committed to work solely towards peaceful resolution of future conflicts. See bathquakers.org/?s=poppies
