are all here for the same reason - because we disagree
with President Bush and Prime Minister Blair holding
a war summit on our soil under the auspices of bringing
constructive intervention to the Norths peace
proposals on the table apparently pertain to post-conflict
Iraq - which the US want complete control of, therefore
reinforcing that this war was also an imperialist
move. The proposed interim body being comprised of
25 American republicans who have I am sure shining
humanitarian credentials like their president. Also
lets not forget the majority of contracts have already
gone to US owned corporations - an example of which
is Halliburton who vice president Cheney coincidently
worked for - for 13 yrs in fact.

- this is the offer to the long suffering people of
The idea that these people believe they can travel
the globe bringing war or their own terms for peace
to whichever region they wish to - discussing their
intervention in the Palestinian question with a proposed
roadmap for peace while the Israeli government and
forces lead by Ariel Sharon continue their security
policies which lead to the deaths of innocent Palestinian
men, women and children on a daily basis. In addition
there is the reoccupation of Gaza, the extension of
their control on the West Bank via the building of
a so called security wall, their inability to fulfil
multiple UN resolutions even in regard to nuclear
weapons inspections - will this merit the same response
as we have seen in Iraq for non compliance of UN resolutions?
Bush while running in the election to be the republican
partys presidential candidate cited Getting
Saddam Hussien as his primary objective if he
was to be elected president.
of the biggest ironies in this situation is that the
man who claims that his goal is to liberate the Iraqi
people and bring them democracy, and who is the leader
of the richest and most powerful (apparent) democracy
in the world was not even elected by majority vote.
Just, as he did not gain the majority of world support
to wage war on Iraq. As we all know Mr Bush Sr. was
once director of the CIA who were responsible for
many rigged elections in Central and Latin America.
(And also lets not forget was a business partner
with the father of Osama Bin Laden). We also know,
that the disputed state in America during Bushs
election, was governed by his brother. So I ask you
was Bush elected democratically? If he was not elected
democratically then is he a dictator? Who are the
greatest threat to world peace - The Bush family or
the family of Saddam Hussein?

of people on this island north or south. Tony Blair
brought Bush to this particular area in the hope of
avoiding mass protests - imagine the millions at a
welcoming party had Tony brought George for tea and
crumpets at Downing street.
12th April is International day of action - all across
the globe people will be marching in continued opposition
to this war - joining those elsewhere The Belfast
anti war movement call on everyone to join us at the
Arts College at 2pm in a march to the City Hall to
voice our ultimate disgust against this ongoing illegal
and immoral war.
Blair and Ahern have no right allow the worlds
biggest tyrant to wash the blood of innocent Iraqi
men, women and children in the pool of the peace process.
say to our political parties who walked with us shoulder
to shoulder in the anti-war movement - shame to the
leaderships of the Womens Coalition, shame to
the leadership of the Alliance Party, shame to the
leadership of Sinn Fein and shame to the leadership
of the SDLP for allowing the warmongers the ability
to masquerade as men of peace.
