ABC Wednesday: "U" is for unnecessary casualties #DontBombSyria #WelfareNotWarfare @STWuk

The fabulous photo above was taken by my new friend Rina Srabonian.
The photos top and below are mine ;-)

Hundreds of us were in Manchester on Saturday to demonstrate against the likely UK government decision to bomb Syria. Thousands of others around the country marched too as part of the Stop the War Coalition. Even the racist Daily Mail is opposed to bombing Syria and Richard Shirreff, a former NATO General, points out how it will end in tears, and the spilt blood of innocents.

We are out tonight in Manchester to demonstrate, join us in Piccadilly Gardens from 5.30 if Cameron and other right wingers, including right wing Labour Party traitors, have declared war by then.

Yes, of course we need to remove the threat of ISIL but just as with UK bombings of Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, all that happens is thousands of innocent civilians get killed. Some of the mourning relations and friends are then more likely to become radicalised and take to barbaric actions like we saw in Paris, Bamako, Madrid, London, NYC etc. Did the UK government learn nothing from the illegal invasion of Iraq by Dubya Bush and Bliar?

As many have stated before, including Brian Eno on Saturday, a way to remove the threat is to trace the ISIL money and cut it off.

Taking part in ABC Wednesday.


  1. Praying for peace!
    Happy ABCW!

  2. I don't really understand why there still has to be 'war' ... i don't want to understand to for that matter...
    like many other people around the world i love peace and pray for it on daily basis... if only people would learn from that it will stop permanently

    Have a nice abc-day / - week

  3. Indiscriminate bombing doesn't do the job. If one has to fight, fight smart. Better as you say to cut off their money and logistics. And to train Kurds and free Syrians on the ground and support them.

  4. The whole thing is such a mess. Canada is taking in (I think) 10,000 refugees by end of the month and another 25,000 by February. I feel so horrible for all these innocent people and agree with you about cutting off the funding for the terrorists. Unfortunately, it's a very complicated matter that I pray will sort itself out before we have World War 3.

  5. The 'racist' Daily Mail?

    Would that be the same Daily Mail that was at the forefront of the campaign for justice in the Stephen Lawrence case?

    1. Same Daily Mail that spills its racist bile daily. The Stephen Lawrence case was unusual for them but they were hardly unique in campaiging for justice there

    2. I assume by 'racist bile' you mean any opinion which is not mainstream Guardian/BBC/PC orthodoxy.

  6. Yes, cutting off DAESH's money will degrade it.
