“Stop The War – Troops Out Of Afghanistan Now”
Date: Wednesday 21st July
Venue: Easton Community Centre, Kilburn Street, Bristol BS5 6AW
Speakers: Hussain Ali, Carol Turner (Stop The War Coalition), Glen Burrows (Bristol RMT – personal capacity)
Hussain Ali came to Britain aged 14 after all his family were killed in Afghanistan. He is now 17 and is threatened with deportation back to Afghanistan because our government has decided it is a 'safe place'. But Afghans and British soldiers die there every day. British soldiers are being withdrawn from the area of the country where casualties have been highest in recent months. The entire US and British strategy for the war is being called into question.
Hear Hussain tell his story and others explain how and why Afghanistan is not a 'safe place'.
This meeting is part of the campaign to raise funds for Hussain's appeal.
