New public holiday

As a Green I'm against war, but not against those who put their lives on the line in the defence of our country.

There is a petition for a new Bank Holiday to remember those sacrifices,

Number 10 Downing Street has approved a petition that was launched
requesting a new public holiday falling on the Monday after Remembrance
Sunday in November each year. To be known as the National Remembrance
Holiday, it's purpose is threefold:
1. To emphasise the remembrance of
those servicemen and women who have given, and continue to give, their lives
for Britain
2. To remind people of the importance of protecting our Nation
and what it stands for
3. To break that 3 month period between the August Public Holiday and
Christmas when there are currently no long weekends, especially as the UK
has fewer public holidays than most European Countries. If you are in
agreement, please sign up to the petition - it only takes a few moments
- and it would be great if you were minded to forward the
link to other people as well.

Thank you for your time.
