The pro-Thatcherite, monetarist and war criminal Tony Blair is back in London, speaking at University College London. Join the protest on the day of Blair's visit to make sure his crimes aren't forgotten. Meet outside the main gates of the UCL campus on Gower Street at 11am on the 13th November.
Tony Blair is back in London on the speaking circuit, this time helping to launch a new department at University College London. In a further attempt to extricate himself from his role in lying about Iraq's non-existant Weapons of Mass Destruction and his illegal invasion of Iraq - which resulted in hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths - Tony Blair is now billed to speak as an expert on the "difficult issues facing markets and economies" and most bizarrely as one of the most "popular politicians in recent times". A letter signed by John Pilger, Tony Benn and academics at London universities, including at UCL, has been sent to college management which criticises what is perceived as an endorsement "of Mr Blair [who] took our country to war against Iraq in flagrant violation of the UN Charter and in doing so committed the international crime of aggression".
