Huge Worldwide Antiwar March - Noon March 22


Antiwar March From Queen Elizabeth Square, Assemble 12-Noon, March 22

The countdown to war has started. Bush and Blair have imposed a march 17 deadline for Iraq. The arms twisting, bribery and threats continue at the United Nations Security Council. But whatever the result The US and British governments are determined on war. Massive mobilisations across the globe
have created obstacles for the war planners and further protest can help raise the political price of their imperial designs.

The justification for war keeps changing as their lies get exposed. The latest inspectors reports revealed that claims By Bush and Blair that Iraq had tried to purchase uranium were based on forged documents and the aluminium tubes were for regular artillery as Iraq claimed.

The US and Britain now emphasise the need for "regime change" because of Iraq's human right record when both governments had been arming and financing the Iraqi regime during the 1980s when the worst abuses occurred. But the world knows this is a war for oil and the planned military occupation of Iraq will be serving the US/British oil companies in the first instance.

The long-term occupation of Iraq with the military bases that will inevitably follow will become the platform for dominating and region with 65% of world's known oil reserves. It will also be the source of new wars to defend the empire.

A recent picture in the NZ Navy magazine confirmed what the peace movement has been saying for weeks - that the NZ frigate on duty in the gulf was providing assistance to the US war effort by escorting US warships through the Gulf as they deliver their deadly supplies. At this critical moment in world history when mass murder is being organised before our eyes the NZ government should condemn the war plans and withdraw the frigate and any other NZ military forces from the Gulf.

MAKE MARCH 22 A DAY WHEN THOUSANDS SAY NO MORE WARS, NO NZ INVOLVEMENT, BRING THE FRIGATE HOME

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
