The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent

Stand Firm

Davy Carlin • 05.04.03

So George Bush is coming to Belfast to 'talk' and attempt to take credit for peace while slaughtering innocents in war, in a war summit. His 'Historic' visit will be met by protests called by the Irish Anti War Movement, Belfast and Derry Anti war coalitions with many others now getting involved. Already in the space of hours almost twenty buses, and growing have been booked and are being filled by Irish Citizens from around the country to come to Belfast.

Others shall come from further afield to stand with us and show solidarity including George Galloway MP. All those opposed to this war should come to Belfast with the first protest taking place at Hillsbourgh at 6pm on Monday.

Walkouts, strike actions and other street protests etc are being planned. Those parties and politicians who are opposed to this war should boycott the meetings and take a stand and join with citizens of Ireland in our stand against the hypocrisy and the continued slaughter of this US led war upon an impoverished people.

Stand firm and speak out.

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
