Five Years On in Iraq

Iraq: Five Years On

Labour lie – one million die
The Bush-Brown war on terror is making the world more unstable. Over 1 million have died in Iraq, war rages in Afghanistan, Iran is threatened with attack, Gaza is under seige, and Pakistan is destabilised.
The Stop the War Coalition have organised a demonstration to mark the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. We urge everybody to attend:

Join the global protests – demonstrate 15 March

Assemble 12 noon, Trafalgar Square, London
Assemble 11.30, Blythswood Square, Glasgow.

Don’t attack Iran

End the siege of Gaza

“I really hope that on 15 March people will join the demonstration in Trafalgar Square at 12. To march against the war and march against the continued occupation which has come from this war. It had a rotten basis and nothing good will come of it.”
Nick Broomfield, Documentary film maker

This month marks the fifth anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. What has followed has been five years of catastrophe for the people of that country.
It also marks the fifth birthday of the global anti-war movement.

On March 15th 2003 two million people took to the streets of London,
and another eight million did around the world, to protest against the
impending disaster.

Respect was born out of that movement as the voice of opposition to war and
neo-liberalism, which in today’s world go together hand in hand. Join Respect and the STWC at tomorrow’s national and international demonstrations.
