NATIONAL DEMONSTRATION AT RAF BRIZE NORTON (OXFORDSHIRE).
Supported by National Stop The War Coalition & National CND. Called by
Oxford, Bristol & Swindon Stop The War Coalitions. Please start making
arrangements in your local area to book coaches for this National
Demonstration. This demo seeks to draw attention to the massive array of
military bases around us, & broader militarisation of the U.K,
especially around South West, Wales & West Midlands, where population is
less dense, and the military bases roam free.
ASSEMBLE : 12:00 noon in Carterton, Oxfordshire, Saturday 2nd December
BACKGROUND : RAF Brize Norton is the base from which all British troops
are flown to Iraq & Afghanistan, & where they return to (alive & dead).
This National Demonstration to the gates of the base is to demand
immediate withdrawal of British troops. RAF Brize Norton is also being
used to refuel American military flights transporting munitions between
Kelly air force base in the USA to Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv,
taking bombs to be used by the Israeli Defense Force in the war in
Lebanon. A big turn out at the gates of the base will send a clear
message to the government, & is an act of solidarity with the service
people & their families who want Britain to withdraw. More details will
be circulated closer to the event.
A LITTLE MORE : This National Demonstration can make a real impact. It
has the full support & backing of the National Stop The War Coalition &
National CND. A similar demonstration was held last year when the
response from the people of Carterton, the largely military town which
lies next to the airbase, was very positive. Kate Hudson, national chair
of CND, is reputed to have said that it was the best demonstration she
had ever been on. Demonstrating there enables us to make important links
between the occupations of Iraq & Afghanistan. Brize Norton is the base
from which soldiers are sent to both countries & to which fatalities are
returned. Senior military commanders are arguing for British troops to
be withdrawn from the 'unwinnable' war in Iraq to be sent to the
'winnable' war in Afghanistan.
