Preparations for protest against the war in Iraq, now in its sixth
year, are being made by all organisations opposed to the war. They will continue with protests at the Labour Party Conference in Manchester on 20th September at 12-30am.
On its internal business Left Alternative reports the resignation of
John Lees and Lindsay German from their National Council. The remain, however members of Left Alternative. John has been a tireless member of the officer’s group from the inception of Respect in difficult political circumstances while Lindsey has been our inspirational mayoral candidate in the Greater London elections of both 2004 and 2008.
Another protest is being arranged by People before Profit who are
calling for lobbies of MPs in support of a windfall tax on energy firms which are making multi-millions in profit while implementing huge rises for ordinary people. Has your MP signed the call for a windfall tax? Supporters are also asked to protest at local Tesco’s when profits are announced at the end of the month.
All these are most worthy campaigns and the heat is now building up on Brown now for his opponents to either sack him or leave him be.
This emphasises once again that the only way to be rid of Brown NOW is either a Citizen’s Arrest of Brown inside Parliament or outside it to stop
the slaughter of innocent children and people in Iraq and Afghanistan and bring him to justice before the Court of Human Rights at the Hague for Crimes against Humanity. George Galloway and Ken Purchases have not replied to me asking them to do it, so we might be suggesting that other left militant MPs such as those on Labour Briefing take up the cudgels to end the war and make themselves public heroes by getting Brown and Blair locked up NOW.
