Part of the Lancaster Protest, Aug 5th 06
Our action groups is diverse and unites Jews, inclusing Israeli citizens, along with Muslims, Christians, Atheists, Socialists, Pacifists, Feminists, Gay rights campaigners, Greens, anti-capitalists, pensioners, Students and others in protest against this bloody imperialist war. The protest was held at the same time as the amazing 100,000 strong protest in London, and helped amplify its impact locally. We are now uniting with Lancaster CND, Lancaster Stop the War Coalition and many others to get a large turn out for the protest outside the Labour Party Conference in Manchester on Sept 23. The local press turned up to cover our protest and carry our message further. We are determined to turn the tide against imperialism, racism and war. We worry that the attack on Hezbollah is the preparation to an attack on Iran or Syria and a wider war. Also, as the protest fell on the anniversary of the genocidal US atomic boming of hiroshima 61 years before, we became more determined to disarm our imperialist rulers of their weapons of mass destruction.
