I will be attending the Glasgow demonstration on 15th February. I have been contacted by hundreds of people by phone, email and in person. Only one has been in favour of military action based on the evidence we have at present. We must never give up the chance to find a peaceful solution.
John Barrett MP
Some decades ago, an Australian right wing government "wrapped itself in the national flag" to portray opposition to the Vietnam war as unpatriotic. Many fair minded Americans must feel similarly abused today. Our demonstration is vital to encourage both them and other "old Europeans" in their misgivings about the Bush/Blair rationale for war.
There is no case for war against Iraq - if the weopons inspectors cannot find anything - perhaps there's nothing to be found!!!!
For the sake of so many lives, make your voice heard.
Theodore Butt Philip
This is the first time in my life I have ever been on a demo but feel so strongly that we should all stand up and be counted. Perhaps then Tony Blair will find out what people of this nation really think.
My mother is demonstrating for the first time since Suez, so moved is she to protest against the abuse of international law and the unilateralism of Bush/Blair.
It really is important that Liberal Democrats make their voices heard loud and clear to restate what the real priorities are for justice and peace, particularly in the Middle East. Protesting against this unjustified war shows how strongly we feel about it.
Cllr Gareth Epps
This will be the first time I've ever been on a national demonstration, but I had to stand up and be counted on this one.
I'll be in Copenhagen on the 15th Feb, showing it isn't just people in the UK who don't want to go to war. The war will have international effects, international public opinion is against this war, it is about time Tony Blair stopped behaving like a poodle and emerged from behind George Bush's shadow. There is not sufficient evidence for war I'm marching to say I don't want it.
War on Iraq without a mandate from the UN would be a crime of astonishing dimensions. How could people who claim to be Christians, like Bush and Blair, venture on such an undertaking?
I usually sit back and let my wife do the politics but I feel so strongly that this war is wrong that I'll be going to Glasgow next Saturday. It's 30 years since I was last on any sort of march.
War is never painless; this will clearly do more harm than good.
Cllr Jim James
We are being misled and pushed into war and danger. Tony Blair won't allow us to vote, or his party, or parliament and is prepared to ignore the UN and Nato, if other countries can't be bullied into line. US defense sec. Rumsfeld and his cronies sold Saddam anthrax and other weapons while supporting the war with Iran. I don't trust war criminals. 500,000 deaths or more just from sanctions. (UN figures) Cluster bombing hasn't 'sorted out' Afghanistan. Hooray for 'old europe'. I'll be at the Glasgow demonstration to protest about this war on a lie.
Britain are not Americas 51st state, and 84% of Britains citizens do not want this war. When is Blair going to listen to HIS people and not Bushes warmongers?
War with Iraq will increase terrorism in this country with the likes of suicide bombers operating in our towns and cities. The attrocities in Iraq on innocent men, women and children will be like nothing we have seen before. If Blair and Bush go to war with Iraq without the consent of the UN then they MUST be tried for war crimes against innocent civilians.
I DON'T WANT A WAR IN MY NAME, GIVE PEACE A CHANCE.
According to the polls the vast majority of people oppose unilateral military action on Iraq. I haven't seen any evidence yet that justifies putting the lives of our service personnel and possibly ourselves at risk. It's important that we stand up and be counted on 15 February. If you think war is wrong, make your voice heard at a march near you.
I am not a pacifist and have never marched before, but I feel that Tony Blair has behaved disgracefully on this issue. He is dragging us into a war that the vast majority of British people oppose and will not even allow Parliament to vote on the issue. We should not hesitate to point out that the Lib Dems are the only party that is principled enough to oppose unilateral military action. I will definitely be attending the march and will bring along as many friends and family members as I can.
I have been a member of the Labour Party for seven years since I was fifteen. I have held numerous posts in my local Constituency Labour Party (CLP) e.g CLP Youth Officer, secretary of the Local Government Committee, a member of the CLP management committee and a branch vice-chair.
However, inspite of my membership of the Labour Party I am enraged at the Prime Minister's plans to go to war with Iraq, if necessary, without the sanction of the United Nations. It is excellent to see a mainstream party such as the Lib Dems opposing this war. If the Lib Dems can work with dissident Labour MPs, the Scottish and Welsh Nationalists and Conservatives such as Douglas Hogg who have all signalled opposition to this war, then it might, even at this late stage prevent a war.
We need co-operation across the mainstream Parties to stop this war.
Well done Charles Kennedy for this courageous stand against an illegal war!
Well done LDs, for daring to be different.
I am against any war led by Bush and Blair alone for many reasons which i won't go into as i'm sure you all know them. However, To me, this march is far more than that. It is about standing up for the democracy and freedoms which we are so lucky to enjoy in our so called 'free world'. We must show Blair that he cannot and must not lead our nation into actions which only a tiny minority want. I urge anyone who has ever thought that democracy is a good thing to attend the march.
I feel that it's time to stand up and be counted-It's time to send Blair a message - that the people of this country don't want an unjust war!
I have never attended a peace demo before, but I shall be attending the demo in Glasgow on Feb 15. It's important that we all stand up and be counted and say that the war on Iraq will be unjust. We have to keep exposing the bankruptcy of the arguments of those on favour of the war.
Cllr Bernard Salmon
This is a vital moment in British-and global- politics. Whilst the march is primarily about preventing war and saving thousands of innocent lives, at the same time it is also about democracy, government accountability and preventing Blair from overriding the overwhelming opinion of the British electorate.
We have a Lincolnshire coach going to the London march with up to 45 people on board, with placards, banners, etc.
I'll be at the Glasgow demonstration, to send a strong message to Tony Blair at the Labour Party Conference. This kind of situation is what the United Nations is for - if the US & UK go to war in Iraq, the principles of international law will be completely undermined. How can we expect other countries to abide by it if we don't?
It is quite ludicrous that Tony Blair says, without batting an eyelid, that there is a "clear and imminent" threat to the United Kingdom from Saddam Hussein. The proposed war was decided upon long before September 11th by George Bush. It is up to us to stand up and be counted to stop Tony Blair being dragged into a war unapproved by the UN which will turn this country into a pirate state.
Cllr Paul Walter
