OVER 100 people attended the Globalise Resistance Scotland conference in Glasgow last Saturday. Participants heard George Galloway denounce as 'drivel' Blair's recent speech that though the war in Iraq might have been illegal, it shouldn't have been. Mark Curtis, author and now director of the World Development Movement, spoke of the need for more direct action.
Fatima Hillou, threatened with deportation to Lebanon-a country she left because of the 1982 Sabra and Shatilla massacres-also spoke. Fatima's appeal is on 22 March, and she urged all at the conference to support her.
