The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent

Not In Our Name

Davy Carlin

This Saturday at 1pm a feeder march takes off from the bottom of the Whiterock on the Falls road to join up with the anti- war march through Belfast city centre. The march is supported by the Trade Union movement, the student movement and by many political and community organisations amongst others. Anyone who is opposed to this war on Iraq is urged to attend and to make their voice heard as will many others in hundreds of cities around the world at the same time. It has been agreed that a full report of all international marches and their feeder parades, actions etc will be reported for those hundreds of cities and the thousands of trade union and anti-war organisations around the world who are involved, so that everyone can get a feel of what is going on in all the other cities on Feb 15th. I hope that Belfast and its various marches send out a clear message when read in other cities that we said loud and clear in our numbers on this historic day of international protest - 'not in our name'.

The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent



Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.
- Thomas J. Watson
