English anti war protest, 20 September


This video from England is called Stop The War Protest March 15 2008 London Compilation.

From the Stop the War Coalition in Britain:

Demonstrate against the cost of war at Labour Conference in Manchester-20 September 2008

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost the lives of more than 200 British soldiers and countless thousands of Iraqi and Afghan civilians. It has also cost billions of pounds, money which could have been spent on houses, healthcare and education in this country. The war has seen the price of oil escalate, with a knock on effect on the price of food and other essentials.

It has been estimated that this war has cost £10 billion so far, without counting the cost of looking after injured soldiers for the rest of their lives. It is time we demanded that Labour spend the money on better services for all, not wars in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Labour party, Prime Minister Gordon Brown, is under attack by fellow party members after the by-election defeat at Glasgow East, which had always been extremely solid Labour party territory, even more so than the rest of traditionally pro Labour Scotland. If repeated all over Britain, only 20 or something Labour members would remain as a fringe party in the big British parliament.

Gordon Brown can hardly be blamed for this alone. His fellow “New” Labour misleaders, war criminal Tony Blair above all, bear most of the responsibility for the Labour party catastrophe. It is to be hoped that, if Gordon Brown will fall soon, as many in the British media expect now, he will not just fall down as a convenient scapegoat, while the “New” Labour disasters of wars and privatizations continue under some new “New” Labour leader. The only way to save the Labour Party now is a very drastic shift to the left, saying STOP to wars and privatizations.

  1. George W. Bush’s sentence-by-sentence speaking skills are deteriorating. Apparently, this may be due to a mental illness called “presenile dementia.” Bush may or may not be secretly still drinking heavily. Bush lied, and thousands of people died. Bush suffers from narcissism and megalomania. Moreover, Bush has been arrested three times. Bush was arrested for disorderly conduct. Bush was arrested for stealing. Bush was also arrested for a serious crime—driving under the influence of alcohol. There are reasons to believe that Bush suffers from a learning disability. Bush’s learning disability would explain a lot of things. All in all, Bush is a severely mentally ill individual. Bush is not fit to be the president of the United States.

    Anti-war protesters are great.
