Britain Needs An Anti-War Foreign Policy Talk – 23rd January

Tuesday 23rd January 7.00pm
The Forum
(downstairs in The Auditorium),
Millennium Plain, Norwich

When the war on terror was launched in October 2001, those who opposed it predicted not just a devastating series of wars but a crackdown on civil liberties and a rise in racism against Muslims.

Pro-war media and politicians told us these wars would root out terrorism, encourage democracy and protect human rights. Well exactly the reverse has happened.

It is imperative to bring the discussion on rising Islamophobia in Britain and Europe and its underlying causes to the forefront. The context of the War on Terror is being ignored by mainstream media reports.

Join this meeting to discuss how we should respond.
