Norwich Protest Against Escalation of Military intervention in Syria
Saturday 14th April | 11:00 - 12:30
Opposite the Forum
The world has become a much more dangerous place. The situation in Syria, involving nuclear-armed states, is alarming, Yesterday Trump sent an incendiary tweet telling Moscow to “get ready” for US missiles, which Russia has vowed to shoot down.
Stop the War is calling a demonstration in Norwich this Saturday, as set out above. Speakers will include former Norwich MP, Ian Gibson, who opposed the disastrous war in Iraq and sees similarities with the situation today.
Our stall will be collecting signatories for a petition stating:-
We oppose calls for further escalation of military intervention in Syria. Any western attack would lead to more death and destruction and would deepen the misery of the Syrian people. It would prolong the cycle of violence and risk direct confrontation between the great powers. The only solution in Syria is an end to all foreign intervention, a ceasefire on all sides and a political settlement.
