The World still says NO to WAR

The World still says NO to WAR

From: Peace Action Wellington

Friday, March 19, 2004

Saturday, March 20 marks the one year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq by the United States and its so-called 'coalition of the willing.' In Wellington, people will take to the streets demanding that the Government 'END all New Zealand support for Bush's Wars.' There will be a rally and march from Civic Square at 12 noon.

'365 days have passed and not one single weapon of mass destruction has been found; Iraqi civilian casualties are approximately 10,000; this war of lies will not be tolerated by the world community. This date is an opportunity for everyone to express their outrage and horror at the continued illegal and immoral occupation' said Peace Action Wellington member Valerie Morse.

'The United States, Britain and Australia have murdered 10,000 innocent people in the Iraq war and occupation; this is state terrorism on a massive scale. Supporting terrorism of this type will endanger New Zealanders overseas and could invite terrorist attacks on New Zealand soil.'

'The New Zealand Labour Government is complicit in these acts by sending armed troops, including SAS soldiers, to Afghanistan and Iraq. They are propping up the United States' imperial army.'

Peace Action Wellington works for peace, justice and self-determination and demands an end to all New Zealand support for imperial wars.
