Israel’s war in Gaza and Lebanon is escalating into an international crisis which could soon engulf the whole region. The promise by Bush and Blair in the lead up to the Iraq war that their wars would bring freedom and democracy to the Middle East and peace to Palestine, have yet again been shown to be lies, just as the anti-war movement has consistently said they were.
This weekend there are emergency demonstrations in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Kirkcaldy, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and York. Join the call to end the carnage and destruction now.
