A Third Of Young People May Refuse To Wear A Poppy This Remembrance Day

“Because it glorifies war.”

In the UK, over 11 percent of the country will not be wearing Poppies “because it glorifies war.”

The Royal British Legion appeal raises about 43 million pounds each year for service personnel and veterans.

The young people who refuse to wear the poppy are under the age of 25!
