Anti-war march against drones

Around 700 anti-war campaigners marched from Lincoln to RAF Waddington on Saturday to protest against drones.

The national demonstration, called by groups including the Stop the War Coalition and War on Want, took place just two days after the government announced that the drones had begun to be operated from this base rather than operated from Nevada.

Nick Parker, secretary of Lincoln and District TUC, and TUSC candidate for Lincoln East, addressed the closing rally. He asked:

"Why are we living under a system which can afford to spend billions of pounds on weapons of mass destruction, but cannot provide money for schools, hospitals, jobs and homes?

"We must commit ourselves to fighting against imperialist wars for oil and gas, and also to fighting the system which causes wars; and for a peaceful socialist world organised for the millions, not the millionaires".
