Reasons to demonstrate on March 18

  • Iraq is suffering – the occupation has cost more than 100,000 lives with no end in sight. Iraqis want our troops to go.
  • British troops are dying in Blair’s war – nearly 100 so far, with hundreds more badly injured.
  • The US and Britain are plotting new aggression – against Iran above all. The war could spread and it could become a nuclear war.
  • We were lied to about the attack on Iraq – it is time Blair was held to account for his decisions, which have undermined democracy.
  • Blair’s foreign policy is making Britain a terror target, as the criminal attacks of July 7 last year proved.
  • Freedom is under threat – civil liberties are being torn up by the government because of the so-called “war on terror”.
  • British Muslims are under threat. We must stand together to protect communities being targeted by Islamophobic racists.
  • Billions are being wasted on the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan which could be used for pensions and public services in Britain.
  • March 18 is an international day of action against the occupation. Protests are already planned accross the world, including one in Iraq.
  • The world will be watching – let’s show friend and foe alike that the British people are opposed to the Iraq occupation and the threats to world peace and our freedom

In our town, there was a peace demonstration outside the local military base.

About two hundred of us showed up---quite good for our little town. I'm hoping for peace in the world. I just hope the politicians will stop for a moment and listen.
