The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent

Day X & Beyond

Davy Carlin • 6/3/2003

Yesterday's school students actions against the oncoming war on Iraq I believe is just the tip of the iceberg. On day X I believe we may see many more students joining in but this time supported by teachers by lecturers and by other education workers. They may be joined by many other trade unionists, women's groups, community groups, solidarity groups and minority groups. As well as by political and peace organisations and many other groups and individuals. Why? Simply because many people believe that this war is wrong. On day X death will rain down on women and children already dying through poverty and hunger. International actions will be organised and co-ordinated and Belfast will be no different. Ten minutes or a half an hour away from whatever station is nothing compared to what the innocents will be facing in the bloody and relentless barrage on a poverty stricken people. Stand Firm, Speak out and ALL OUT - ALL OUT against this coming slaughter.

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
