>> Newsletter No. 12
>> November 6, 2004
>> Bush’s re-election and the tragic deaths of three UK soldiers in Iraq
>> should be a signal for all those opposed to the occupation to renew 
>> and
>> redouble their campaigning efforts. With the assault on Fallujah and
>> Ramadi imminent, it’s time to escalate our activity. More than ever we

>> and complete withdrawal of all UK forces from Iraq.
>> “I think they should just get them all out of there now, because if 
>> not
>> we are going to lose a lot more like this,” said Craig Lowe, a serving
>> soldier and the brother of one of the three British soldiers killed on
>> Thursday by a suicide bomber near Baghdad. He added that his brother
>> had blamed Bush for “starting a war over nothing, trying to get money
>> and oil. That’s what we all thought.”
