In an important move, Unite, Britain’s biggest trade union, has called for an end to the air attacks on Libya.
In a statement, the union says, “Unite believes the attack on Libya by British, French and US forces is wrong and should be halted.
“Unite believes the present military intervention is a mistake because it risks killing Libyan civilians while doing nothing to end hostilities on the ground.
“It prolongs a civil conflict when what is needed is a ceasefire followed by mediation. We urge the British government to think again, call a halt to the military action and urge a general ceasefire to be followed by international mediation.”
