Inspired by the #Torture Report and the decision by Save the Children to award Tony Blair a Global Legacy Award please join me in a #poppies inspired protest. The intention is to crochet a flower for every child Blair's policies in the Middle East have forsaken. The dead children, the brutalised, the injured, the orphaned, the children of injured and killed servicemen and women, and the children who have grown up to feel angry enough to wave black flags. My child tells me it will take a lifetime.
Day one: Five flowers crocheted. Thousands and thousands to go.

Latest News: There is no school for half a million children in Northern Iraq.
