Troops Out of Iraq: Change Policy Not Just Leader (Manchester - UK)
Tony Blair is standing down as Prime Minister in large part because he has been forced out by the anti-war movement. His blind support for George Bush’s wars in the teeth of public opposition, the exposure of his lies about weapons of mass destruction and the disaster of the occupation of Iraq, all wrecked his political reputation.
It was revulsion against his backing for the Israeli attack on Lebanon last summer that finally forced him to bring forward his departure date.
Now we need a change of policy, not just a change of leader. We need the new Prime minister to break with the disasters of Blair’s foreign policy. Above all, that means withdrawing the occupying troops form Iraq. It also means:
- ending the occupation of Afghanistan
- saying no to any attack against Iran
- pulling out of the reckless ‘Star wars’ project
- supporting justice for the Palestinian people.
Please sign the open letter to Gordon Brown on our website, and march on June 24 to ensure that he gets the message.
