This video from London, England says about itself:
On Friday 26th September 2014 the UK parliament voted to start bombing Iraq for the 3rd time. On the evening before Stop the War Coalition called an emergency protest outside Downing Street. To show there are other opinions available than to just have yet another Western military intervention.

Red Cross: US Strikes Add to Humanitarian Crisis in Iraq, Syria
Strikes Compounding the Humanitarian Conflict
September 26, 2014
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has warned that the US-led airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria have “compounded the humanitarian consequences of the conflicts in both countries.”
Even though the US couched the initial attacks in Iraq as a “humanitarian intervention,” their focus has since expanded to a full scale war to “destroy” ISIS, in which officials have promised to keep civilian casualties to a minimum, but didn’t appear overly concerned about the deaths in the strikes so far.
The Red Cross warns that the situation is continuing to worsen, and warned that all the combatant factions must refrain from harming civilians and must allow humanitarian workers to bring help.
As US strikes have increased, ISIS has moved most of its forces to less conspicuous targets that are less convenient to hit. This has made the US more likely to go after difficult targets, particularly those in populated areas, which means the humanitarian woes of the conflict are likely to grow as the war continues.
ISIS AIRSTRIKES COST ALMOST $1 BILLION According to The Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, the U.S. has spent between $780 and $930 million so far. [HuffPost]
