What to do on Sunday…
Join some campaigns, go to a local church fayre, share the truth.
This week, our Walthamstow MP voted for airstrikes, against my and many others wishes. This is her prerogative. I’m not inclined to hear any more about the reasons, and I’ve already spent half my week correcting the lies of the media about how I protested my position against bombing. Stella knows how I feel- In the last year, I’ve written to her three times — about military action, the arms trade and refugees. I haven’t recieved replies to my questions.
If there’s a meeting on Sunday I’m not sure I’ll be there. Here’s what I’ll spend my time doing — taking steps towards safer lives for us, and safer lives for Syrian people. What the motion voted on in Parliament talked about, but hasn’t yet acted on.
“Cut Sources of Finance”. Arms to the region fuel the terrorism.
Spread the message, join the campaign, fight against arms sales to Saudi Arabia. They are the UK’s biggest client, and our taxes subsidise this. Join CAAT — hell, we could even set up a local group!! Who’s in?
