THE PEOPLE'S DOSSIER VERSUS THE DODGY DOSSIER

Have you submitted your question to Tony Blair for the People's Dossier, which Stop the War will be presenting to the Iraq Inquiry?

Start: 17:00
End: 19:00

The Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) will hold a demonstration this Friday January 29th at 5pm outside the British Embassy in Ballsbridge, Dublin. The protest has been organised to coincide with the appearance of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair before the Chilcott inquiry, where he will answer questions about his role in launching the war on Iraq in 2003.

The protest will coincide with a series of protests taking place in Britain at the Chilcott inquiry and on the previous day (Thursday 28th) at the international conference on Afghanistan, hosted by current British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown.

The IAWM, like its British counter-part, the Stop the War Coalition, believe any serious inquiry into Mr Blair's role in the Iraq war could only conclude that he told multiple and deliberate lies to justify an aggressive and illegal war.

Similarly, the British and Irish anti-war movements believe that the international conference on Afghanistan being hosted by Gordon Brown, the day before Mr Blair's appearance at the inquiry, is a cynical attempt to re-brand the hugely unpopular war in Afghanistan as the "good war," when it is one equally as immoral as that fought in Iraq.

Press Release
GAAW TO HOLD ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The Galway Alliance Against War will hold its annual general meeting on
Wednesday 3rd February at 8pm upstairs in Richardson’s of Eyre Square
Galway.

Last year was a very busy and wide-ranging one for the local peace group.
Not only did its members play a major role in mobilising humanitarian help
for the Palestinians of Gaza last February, but they were to the fore in the
Galway No 2 Lisbon Campaign back in September.

In between GAAW has continued to articulate its principled opposition to warplanes participating in air shows over Galway.  Readers will recall that GAAW organised one of its “99 Red Balloon Peace Events” to express its disagreement with the RAF’s Red Arrows air display in June.

On New Year’s Day GAAW kicked off the new decade with a New Year’s Peace Party which included a telephone link-up with “the bravest woman in
Afghanistan”, Malalai Joya, an Afghani MP, who opposes not only foreign
occupation of her country and the fundamentalist Afghani government but also their opponents, the Taliban.

Haiti Solidarity Ireland invite you to join them in calling for the removal of American and other international occupation troops from Haiti with a picket of the American embassy in Dublin on February 25 from 6-7pm.

The protest will also call for the right of ordinary Haitians to control the reconstruction of their country, against the interventions of imperial powers and the brutal repression of a colluding domestic political and business elite.

The picket is part of an international day of action which will see solidarity actions take place in over a hundred cities around the world. It has been called by a coalition of Haitian grassroots organisations and trade unions, including Fanmi Lavalas, the country’s most popular political
party, which has been illegalised and persecuted by the Haitian government.

——————————

Haiti Solidarity Ireland is a coalition to support Haitians in their struggle against foreign intervention and for an inclusive, democratic and equitable Haiti. We are organised on the principles of international solidarity and anti-imperialism and have branches in Cork and Dublin.
