Report: Strong demo against the war

I attended the anti-war demonstration today in London calling on our government to withdraw the troops from Afghanistan.

It seemed well attended and lively, and although I don't really bother much with the speeches at the end, Green Party member Farid Bakht spoke very well from the platform I thought. I'm sure others spoke well too but I was off for a sit down and a natter with pals I hadn't seen for a while.

This report on Channel Four News is probably the best mainstream coverage I've seen of an anti-war demo to date and it shows how important it is to reach out to those serving in the armed forces as part of our struggle for a truly ethical foreign policy.
