Defend George Galloway

by Build a socialist alternative to New Labour
Issue No. 1850

EVERY DAY the brutal reality of the occupation of Iraq becomes clearer. It means repression in the interests of profit and US power. New Labour's response is to suspend anti-war MP George Galloway from the party. The target is not just one individual, but every one of the millions who marched against the bloody war on Iraq.

This is not about alleged financial 'scandals' - it is a coordinated political assault. At the same time Blair is stepping up the war against ordinary people in Britain. His plans for 'foundation hospitals' open the way for privatisation across the NHS.

Blair is pressing ahead with hard Thatcherite policies on every front. The only answer is to meet fire with fire. Blair's onslaught demands a determined response from all those who oppose him.
