Protestors outside the Council House

Dozens of Coventry people protested at short notice tonight against the government’s plans to bomb Syria. The event, organised by Coventry Stop the War Coalition,took place on the eve of the vote in parliament tomorrow (Weds 2nd Dec) and drew much support from passers by with many car drivers ‘tooting’ to show their solidarity.

Local press from BBC Coventry and Warwickshire and Touch FM interviewed activists about the protest and what is happening around the country, with thousands braving the cold across the UK and an even greater number lobbying their MP’s, urging them to vote against the Tory war plans.

Socialist Party members on the protest

Socialist Party members attended the protest, gaining many signatures on the petition against military intervention. The Socialist Party, alongside sister organisations in the Committee for a Workers’ International, have been part of protests around the world against this latest imperialist adventure which will not bring security for the population here, and only bring more chaos, destruction and death to the people of the Middle East, at the same time strengthening the hand of ISIS/Daesh.

There is an old adage of the movement ‘Socialism or Barbarism’. This is the choice facing humanity today. Capitalism offers us nothing but austerity and war, time to fight for socialism!
