WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
British airfields are the launch pad for the B-52s that have been leaving daily on their bombing
missions. These planes carry the cruise missiles that have been reigning terror on the people of
Iraq. In the last few days hundreds of innocent Iraqis have died and many more have been injured.
These bombs inflict horrific injuries.
The vast majority of people and governments around the world have expressed that an invasion of
Iraq is unnecessary, illegal and immoral. And yet it is happening!
The US, UK, and a handful of supporters are flouting world opinion (including in their own
countries) and causing a humanitarian and political disaster in Iraq.
In the US, in the UK, and around the world people are organising non-violent actions to directly
stop the war machine. On Friday we will prevent the UK high commission from going about its daily
business-because its daily business includes providing support for a war on Iraq.
We encourage everyone to keep working for peace. Together, we can stop this war.
