Socialist Worker

Stop the war

Issue No. 1898

AROUND THE country activists held emergency protests last Saturday to protest against the massacre of over 600 Iraqis in Fallujah. Around 250 people assembled in Edinburgh's Parliament Square to hear speeches denouncing the brutality of the occupation. Some 200 protesters marched through Brighton and attended a lively rally.

In Manchester Stop the War and CND held a joint protest on the busy Market Street.

In Leeds 70 people came to a protest organised at four days notice. Trevor Bavage, a local Stop the War activist, told Socialist Worker, "People can sometimes feel impotent as they watch Blair following Bush's every move but in June people will get the chance to deliver a political punch to Blair."
