How many more have to die for a lie and an illegal war? Whilst the NHS, education and other public services face cuts and closures, with rising unemployment, billions of taxpayers money is wasted because of a lie leading to an illegal war.
We say bring the troops home, end the war, stop spending on Trident and bring to justice those responsible for this carnage. The longer the occupation continues, the worse it gets.
ATTORNEY GENERAL REVEALS NEW BLAIR LIES
PROTEST THIS FRIDAY, JAN 21ST, 8AM
Tony Blair is back in front of the Chilcot inquiry. The hearing comes against
a background of the statement from his chief legal adviser which effectively
says that Blair ignored his advice over the legality of the Iraq war. Lord
Goldsmith, who was attorney general in the Blair government, has said that he
felt uncomfortable with Blair's public statements in the run up to war.
It is clear that Blair had a strategy of not asking for legal advice from his
legal adviser, trying to avoid it being put in writing, and in general
ensuring that he heard nothing which might hold him back in his determination
to follow George Bush into the war.
Blair deliberately went to war despite knowing that the lawyers thought the
war was not legal. He is now giving evidence for a second time at Chilcot, to
try to explain the discrepancies between his original evidence and that of
Stop the War, along with CND and BMI, is calling a demonstration outside the
Chilcot inquiry this Friday, 21st January, at 8 am. We are asking everyone who
can be there to attend. He is scheduled to be in the hearing from 9.30 to 2
pm but there is now talk of him being there all day because of this latest
statement. We would especially encourage people to come from 8 till 10.30, but
there will be people there for the duration of the hearing.
