A meeting’s been called on Wednesday 3 February to discuss why Britain’s at war – and why Thanet should care.
Lindsey German, national convenor of the Stop The War campaign group, will be speaking in a public meeting in Broadstairs.
She will be joined by Aram Rawf, who came to Britain from Iraq as an asylum seeker almost 20 years ago, to discuss the bombing of Syria.
A spokesperson for Thanet Left Forum who have organised the meeting said: “Britain is bombing Syria. It’s supplying weapons and advisors to Saudi Arabia to bomb Yemen. This is a chance to question why we’re doing this.”
He added: “Are we really doing this in self-defence? And wouldn’t the money be better spent helping poor areas like Thanet.
The meeting will take place at 7pm on Wednesday 3 February at the Red Hall, 11 Grosvenor Road, Broadstairs CT10 2BT.
