Afghanistan, Pakistan, Where Will It End?
The headline speaker is PETER BRIERLY from MILITARY FAMILIES AGAINST THE WAR.
Peter's son, Shaun Brierly was killed in Iraq, and Peter has campaigned against the war ever since. He last hit the news when he refused to shake hands with Tony Blair at the Chilcot Enquiry. Like the relatives of other dead soldiers, Peter got a special invitation to hear Blair give evidence.
Besides Peter, we also have Assed Baig coming to speak. Assed has written extensively against the war, and is President of Staffordshire University Students' Union, based in Stoke-on-Trent. He has recently survived a right wing attempt to remove him.
The final speaker is Chris Nineham, one of the National Officers of the Stop the War Coalition.
The War is as unwinnable as it ever was; it is as unpopular as it ever was. Come and help us keep up the pressure to end it!
