British organization Military Familes Against the War have won their action against the government:

Press Release: Military Families Against the War

Today Military Families won their appeal against the government’s decision to refuse a full public inquiry into the Iraq war.

Rose Gentle and Peter Brierley and others had argued that the war was illegal and based on lies.

Their sons had died as a result of these lies.

There will now be a judicial review of Prime Minister Tony Blair’s decision to not allow a public inquiry.

This is a Prime Minister who has not visited soldiers wounded in his wars and who has refused to meet with families of servicemen killed in Iraq.

Rose Gentle said today, ‘Prime Minister you have refused to meet me in Downing Street now you will meet me in court.’
