Syrian air strikes should be condemned




On Monday, April 16, I joined a thousand plus demonstrators in Parliament Square in London against the bombing and air strikes in Syria that had taken place about 72 hours beforehand orchestrated by Trump and supported by Macron and May.

In London several speakers took to the stage to condemn the action of America, Britain and France. Lindsey German, Stop the War convener, Labour MPs Richard Burgon and Chris Williamson, John Rees and Bruce Kent gave particularly good speeches.

The action by Theresa May to support America and France was a disgrace and should have gone to Parliament beforehand and the letter by Ronald Mortimer in support of Theresa May shows how ex-military people think we should behave in these conflicts.

We should be looking for peace all around the world not engaging in conflicts which could lead to more wars. As for Assad being done for war crimes, what about Blair and Bush over Iraq? They are just as much war criminals because millions of lives were lost. The world has become a lot more unstable because of their actions over a decade ago. For Ronald Mortimer to say that demonstrators should live in a country under a tyrant like Assad is no answer.
