Humanitarian Intervention

Brian stood for ten long years in parliament square protesting against the wars and sanctions that we imposed on other countries, delivering death and suffering to millions of people.

Will it always be the same? supplying arms to maintain this addiction to violence and repression.

‘Man’s default mode is war’  it is said and certainly this maxim is fed with a constant diet of violence and war nostalgia on film and television.

Iran appears to be the next middle east country on our war agenda. Constant sabre rattling from America and Isreal possibly mean that it is only a matter of when! So millions more lives will be blighted over our greed for the resources  of the middle East.

18th century imperialism masquerading as 21st century humanitarian intervention.
