A message from the Federal Executive

Dear friend,

Saturday's march is now just a few days away now, and the anticipation is building to fever pitch!

It is clear that when the Federal Executive decided to encourage members to attend this demo (click here for more information), it was tapping into a growing feeling of unease within the Party about what is going on on the world stage, and a desire to do something about it.

Thank you to everyone who has pledged to attend the march. The list of MPs, MEPs, Peers and members from across Britain on this site really inspiring. And that is just scratching the surface. I have had literally hundreds of people contact me over the past month to confirm they will be attending from across the country. I've given up counting now, but it is clear we will be a force to be reckoned with.

Now Charles has confirmed his attendence it is absolutely vital that we redouble our efforts to ensure that the Liberal Democrats form a visible presence, demonstrating our opposition to this war on the current discredited evidence. Please ring your friends and colleagues over the next few days to encourage them to come. And make sure they confirm their attendence by filling in the form on this website.

I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!

Love and liberty,

Donnachadh McCarthy

(March Co-ordintor), Deputy Chair, Federal Executive
