Remembering The Innocent Dead: 2 Protests to Mark O'Bomber's & British queen's visits
The Galway Alliance Against War is to hold two protests in the city next week to mark the visit of Queen Elizabeth and President Barak Obama to Ireland. According to a GAAW spokesperson the protests, which will take the shape of mock funeral processions, are being held to remember “the innocent killed by the British and US war machines in their on-going illegal wars.”
“The Irish State will roll out the red carpet for the commander-in-chiefs of both the British and US armies. We feel there is a need for a reality check. Over the last 10 years both of these military forces have been involved in major illegal and unnecessary wars that have caused the deaths of over a million innocent people in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Barak Obama won the US presidency claiming he personified “Change” and “Hope”, when in fact he continued to pursue the bellicose policies of his predecessor, George W. Bush. In his first week as US President he sanctioned drone attacks that killed some 25 innocent Pakistani civilians. Since then he has proved himself to be nothing other than a serial killer. Also, when one brave whistleblower with the US armed forces, Bradley Manning, showed the world the reality of the US occupation of Iraq he was brutalised and incarcerated“, stated a spokesperson of GAAW.
