Stop the War hits back ahead of rally
Saturday 12th December 2015
Group points to history of being proved right on British wars
Wolverhampton North East MP Emma Reynolds insisted yesterday that her leader should not attend the organisation’s events because it stood against the party’s values.
Ms Reynolds was a supporter of rightist Blairite Kendall (who got only 4% of the votes) in the Labour leadership election. She claimed that Corbyn, who won with 60% of the votes, should not have been allowed to be a candidate at all. She used to be a lobbyist for Big Business at the European Union in Brussels; and was Special Adviser of fellow Blairite Geoff Hoon (later sacked because of corruption).
But Stop the War chairman Andrew Murray hit back at a fundraising dinner, saying: “Stop the War has faced a hurricane of malicious attacks in recent weeks, largely as a proxy means of trying to undermine Jeremy Corbyn.
“These attacks serve only to distract from the government’s crumbling case for war in Syria — and the fact that our movement has been proved right in its campaigns against the disastrous conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.
“Stop the War has nothing to apologise for and much to be proud of.”
Today’s demonstration will see an expected 10,000 people march from outside BBC Broadcasting House on Portland Place to Downing Street.
Stop the War convener Lindsey German argued that a continued campaign was absolutely necessary after Chancellor George Osborne’s comments that the air strikes had given Britain “its mojo back.”
“He’s made it very clear what this is all about,” she added.
“It’s about Britain having a place at the table with the other great powers.
“We think there’s no other justification for it at all.”
“Britain should be using its resources to welcome refugees into our society, not dropping bombs on Syria while simultaneously locking out refugees from the region.”
Fellow anti-war protester Sequoyah De Souza Vigneswaren said he came down from Leeds because “we have a moral duty to oppose the war crimes that are committed for strategic national-interest in our names.
“It is not just our right, but our obligation to hold our imperial elites to account.
“It is the very least we should do if we actually believe in the values of internationalism, peace and social justice.”
