Stop the War Coalition’s Response to the Chilcot Report
The Chilcot report is a damning indictment of Tony Blair and those around him who took us to war in Iraq.
The report vindicates Stop the War and all we have been campaigning for over the years. This report would not have happened without our campaigns and our ceaseless demands for Blair to be held to account.
It clear that Blair used lies and deception to get his way, that the war was unnecessary and illegal and that everything was done to ensure it went ahead.
The victims are the Iraqis, those soldiers who died and were injured, but also the whole political system traduced by this process.
The anti-war movement and the millions who marched were vindicated by this report and we now demand justice.
We welcome the fact that this report is so damning but for us this is not the end but the beginning. Meetings should be held in every town and city around the country. There must be legal sanctions against Tony Blair and he should no longer be considered fit for any office.
If you are in London, join us tomorrow (7 July) at the People’s Response to Chilcot public rally at Mary Ward House at 7pm.
