Bristol rally

About 350 people squeezed into Bristol’s Trinity Centre on Friday of last week to hear Tony Benn, Lindsey German and Kamil Mahdi (Iraqi democrat and peace campaigner) discuss the importance of the forthcoming anti-war demonstration on 18 March.

A number of people compared the atmosphere to the lead-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Some 42 coach tickets for 18 March were sold on the night.

Peter Brierley, whose son was killed in Iraq, will be speaking at an anti-war meeting in Rusholme, Manchester, next week. It is at 7.30pm on Wednesday 8 March, at Birchfield Community Centre, Brighton Grove, Rusholme.

lAbout 180 people came to a meeting in Balham, south London, on Thursday of last week to hear Tony Benn, Anas al-Tikriti and others.

We have a series of events planned in the run up to 18 March demonstration, with regular stalls on four different high streets in the borough, and a car and cycle cavalcade on Saturday of next week.
