From The Socialist newspaper, 25 August 2005

March against war and terrorism

THE DEVASTATION of Hurricane Katrina has exposed the impact of Bush's imperialist adventures domestically. While $5 billion a month is spent on destroying Iraq, spending on protection against natural disasters has been cut back to $187 million! While Bush has made statements from the comfort of his rose garden, thousands have faced unspeakable horrors.

Sarah Sachs Eldridge

Iraq continues to be a living nightmare for the majority with no security, growing violence and no suggestion that Bush can solve the problems that US and UK imperialism have created.

Despite Blair's protestations, 85% of people linked the terrorist attacks in London with the war in Iraq. We need working class unity to oppose terrorism and the attacks on our democratic rights that he is planning in the name of anti-terror legislation.

September 24 will be an opportunity to demonstrate our opposition to war and terrorism and their terrible effects on ordinary working people in Iraq, in Britain and internationally.

But how can we consign to history this situation where war and occupation, poverty and exploitation inflict horrific misery on the lives of millions? How can we end this cycle of suffering and inequality?

Capitalism means that all the decisions about where and how our money is spent are made on the basis of profit. 600 people in the world, whose wealth is greater than the poorest 3 billion, control and own the 500 multinational corporations that dominate the world economy.

On 24 September we will be marching for, chanting for and building support for a socialist society that is democratically planned and run for need not profit.

This is the only alternative to an otherwise bleak future of war and instability.


Demo details:

Assemble 11.30 at College Green (opposite House of Lords, Millbank) and march to Hyde Park.

Stockwell feeder march assembles at 11am, Clapham Road, down from Stockwell Tube.

East London feeder march assembles at Altab Ali park, Whitechapel High Street, London E1.

Demonstration called by STWC, CND and MAB
