Stop Another War

Last night attended a public meeting run by Stop the War, at which Tahira from Iraqi Women Solidarity and Andrew Murray, founder of Stop the War spoke. 

The situation on the ground in Iraq has deteriorated.  Human Rights Watch reports that there have been countless civilian attacks, and death sentences for opponents of the government.  When a Shia person is kidnapped, the ransom is paid, and the person returned.  When a Sunni is kidnapped, the ransom is paid, and the family receive a body.  Rather than liberating Iraq the West has led the country into chaos and despair. 

And of course the situation in Syria is beyond imagining.  Next demonstration -  Time for Truth about the Iraq War - on 29th January on College Green SW1 to protest against the delay in the Chilcot Inquiry and the decision to begin bombing Iraq again.
