People from all over Thanet gathered at Broadstairs war memorial to protest against the bombing of Syria on Saturday 12 December.

The protest was organised by Christine Tongue of the Thanet Stop The War group.

Christine said: “It was a very moving occasion. We had readings and a song and people expressed their opposition to the British government’s decision to join the bombing.”

She added: “What saddened me the most was to hear how many hundreds of civilians have already died in bombings in Syria. And I fear that the British bombing will lead to yet more innocent people dying.”

Christine explained why the Thanet Stop The War group decided to hold their meeting at the war memorial.

“The war memorial is a monument to those who died in war. What better place to come together say that we don’t want more deaths?”

She said that there will more protests in the future if the bombing continues
