Tony Bliar Signs Books In Bristol [1]

07-09-2010 17:22

After the protest in Dublin last Saturday, Tony Blair has cancelled his book signing in London. The publication of his memoirs which justify the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have outraged the millions of people across the country who oppose those wars.

Blair knows he cannot appear in public without being confronted by protests over his war crimes and by attempts to make a citizen's arrest.

Blair knows he cannot appear in public without being confronted by protests over his war crimes and by attempts to make a citizen's arrest.

Fortunately, here in Bristol, Tony Bliar is happy to meet the public and will sign books outside Waterstones in Union Street on Wednesday 8th September from 12 noon to 2pm. He realises that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have resulted in untold suffering – hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans have died along with hundreds of British troops.

Bristol Stop The War Coalition are pleased to offer this chance for people in Bristol to show how offensive they find the publication of Blair's book

Date: Wednesday 8th September
Time: 12 noon to 2pm
Venue: Outside Waterstones Bookshop, Union Street, Broadmead, Bristol BS1 3XD

Compassion is sometimes a central theme of media reporting. On August 25, journalists across the UK described how a British woman, Mary Bale, had been filmed dropping a cat into a wheelie bin.
