This is from Sheffield Stop the War Coalition. Please join us at the demonstration on Saturday.
Protest Saturday 31st August 12pm, Town Hall, Sheffield.
Britain, France and the US are committing to another disastrous military intervention. It now seems, even with them backing down this week to vote in parliament that it is not a matter of if, but when.
Apart from the inevitable casualties, any attack on Syria can only inflame an already disastrous civil war and would risk pulling in regional powers further.
Most people in this country have learnt from the disasters of Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. According to a Telegraph/YouGov poll on Sunday only 9% of the British public would support troops being sent to Syria, and only 16% support sending more arms to the region. Our politicians however have learnt nothing.
* Share the information of this event with your Facebook friends, forward this page to friends. We need to show our opposition to any attacks on Syria.
We need the maximum level of protests to stop them plunging us in to yet another catastrophic war.
