On Saturday 28th November 2015, a number of events were taking place throughout the UK opposing PM David Cameron’s march to war in Syria.
In London, thousands of people came out in Westminster and held a rally directly outside of the PM’s residence in Downing Street. It was organised by British based Stop The War Coalition and featured numerous speakers including George Galloway and Labour MP Diane Abbott. People of all ages and backgrounds were in attendance, and felt it was necessary to speak out against Britain’s march to war.
Cameron wants to join the self-described Western ‘coalition’ that claims it has been attacking ISIS for just over a year now. Yet, Russia has managed to achieve far more in the fight against ISIS in just a few months, which brings the West’s real motive into question.
Not only that, but Russia is doing so in a legal manner, with the full backing and approval of the sovereign Syrian government. This is the drastic difference between the Western and Russian missions, as Cameron has absolutely no authority to bomb Syrian territory. Moreover, let us not forget that the British have been training the so-called ‘moderate’ rebels that became ISIS.
