We'll be discussing plans for the Convoy To Calais. In addition we will have a speaker who has recent experience of Yemen where Saudi Arabia is fighting a devastating war, causing widespread casualties and suffering. Many of the weapons it is using have been supplied by Britain. Despite a call from the European Parliament for an arms embargo, Britain's arms trade with Saudi Arabia continues. Read about the war and Britain's part in it here.
In recent weeks the media and others have tried to whip up a storm, trying to equate support for Palestinian rights with anti-semitism. You can read Stop The War's statement on this here.
And don't forget – we are promised publication of the Chilcott Report into the invasion of Iraq early in July – look out for details of local events around this.
Come along and discuss how we can spread the anti-war message in Bristol. All Welcome.
