Wall of sound demonstration to silence Tony Blair this Thursday

Issue No. 2095

The Stop the War Coalition is asking as many people as possible to help create a wall of sound to accompany Tony Blair as he gives a lecture on Faith and Globalisation at Westminster Cathedral in London on Thursday 3 April.

The Stop the War site says, 'No doubt Blair will be pontificating about the 'values' and 'morality' of his 'faith' and how they guided him in making 'difficult' decisions, like the slaughter of up to one million Iraqis and the total destruction of their country in an illegal war.

'We want people to bring musical instruments and sound making implements of every kind – drums, trumpets, saxophones, violins, cymbals, whistles, sirens, horns, rattles, saucepans and cans to bang; we want every type of band, choir and musical group to join us.'

Wall Of Sound To Silence Blair
Thursday 3 April, 6.30pm
Westminster Cathedral, Francis St, London SW1P 1QW
Just South Of Victoria Street (Victoria tube)

The protest will be preceded by a silent vigil lasting from 6.30 – 7.00pm organised by Pax Christi. We start the cacophony at 7pm.
