1) British planes dropped their first bombs in this new war on Iraq.
2) two hours before, Tory Home Secretary Theresa May announced an explicit attack on the Muslim communities, accusing them of not being British and sharing the “values” of the rest of us.
3) she and other ministers sent the reactionary right into a drunken orgy promising to scrap the Human Rights Act (this is the body of law that means that the phone-hacking newspapers and Rupert Murdoch got caught out, for example).
War, Islamophobia and attacks on civil liberties. All like 2001 to 2003. The assault at home is even more intense and comes after six years of the great economic crisis.
To cap it all – Netanyahu makes clear he will attack Palestine – Gaza, West Bank or Al Quds – as soon as he thinks he can.
The anti-war movement was founded on opposing these three evils and rapidly adopted also the slogan Freedom for Palestine.
We have, thankfully, a decade of experience and we have a living movement.Let us renew and build it.
Demonstrate this Saturday in London. The rally at the demonstration will aim to educate and to organise for the next great wave of agitation.
Seize the time.
In the last three days we have more than half-filled our coach to the national demo in London on Saturday. But we need to fill the coach to pay for it. If you can come or send a donation to help others please reply urgently. To book a seat send name, mobile number & which pickup point.
