Protest vigils against the attacks on the people of Iraq
It was decided at the vigil on 3 March that there will be a vigil at 5pm every Wednesday at the Cenotaph (corner Bowen Street and Lambton Quay) while the ongoing bombing raids by US and British warplanes continue.
We are protesting against the raids, an undeclared war against the people of Iraq, which do not even have the pretence of United Nations support; the recent announcement that the bombing raids will no longer be confined to military targets; and the ongoing economic sanctions which are causing the deaths of thousands of Iraqi children every month. We are particularly concerned that the NZ government supports these atrocities.
