William Morris Duff:A Man of Peace

The rationale behind this picture is that personally I see a single man from whom I am descended - my great grandfather - representing a mass movement, a brotherhood of pacifists.  For each individual to follow his/her conscience is the starting point for change .  This inspires me.

This year is the centenary of compulsory conscription of soldiers to the 1st WORLD WAR. My ancestors refused to fight. It was a deeply felt personal decision : Killing another human being was wrong. I show the vociferous condemnation expressed in the press and propaganda posters.
