“TO END WAR – THE PEOPLE MUST GO ON STRIKE”

# 3 Day INTERNATIONAL STRIKE for PEACE #

30th NOVEMBER 2011…

TO END WAR – THE PEOPLE MUST GO ON STRIKE”

From Midnight Thursday 29th November – 12 Noon Saturday 3rd December 2011

Across the UK people will be striking to highlight the severe financial cuts our Government has imposed on the people of our country, as a direct result of our on-going illegal wars of aggression against the people of Afghanistan.

Education, Health Care, Civil Liberties, Pensions, Employment, Legal Aid, Libraries, Housing,

the list goes on…….

Meanwhile, we are expected to find money to pay the EU bankers for the financial crisis created by their own greed and incompetence.

WE PAY THEIR BILLS !

WILL THEY PAY OURS?……..NO!……THEY SEND THE BAILIFFS!

The on-going war in Afghanistan has cost BILLIONS. Soldiers, civilians, women and children have been killed and seriously wounded. WHAT FOR?

…..Because endless global wars are HUGLY PROFITABLE.

Why then, do we all go along with it? We know it’s wrong, yet we submit like sheep everyday !

Sorry, but by complying, we allow our Government to wage illegal, immoral wars of aggression.
If we really want to address the situation and deliver justice to the people of Afghanistan, if we really want to regain our self respect as a nation and as a people, then we must unite and stand together to DEMAND that our Government stops hostilities and orders the troops home. Some will have to stay for humanitarian reasons.

We don’t need a world full of armies opposing each other. We need to feed the hungry, tend to the sick, and clothe and shelter the poor. That is the duty of humankind, whether we like it or not.

It’s not rocket science!

Reality check- Let’s all unite and go on strike together for all the reasons mentioned, with the aim of actually achieving our objective.

10 years of protesting, marching, campaigning and lobbying has simply not been enough!

We have NOT STOPPED ANY WAR……….THEREFORE….

TO END WAR – THE PEOPLE MUST GO ON STRIKE”

We now need to SHUT DOWN for 3 Days in order for our strike to be effective.

By collectively being on “Peace Strike” together, we – the ordinary people – become the most powerful that we can be. We will send a clear message to our government that we will not support any acts of aggression towards innocent citizens of any country… we will not be deceived into waging wars for ‘Global Corporate’ greed and power.

INTERNATIONAL STRIKE FOR PEACE”

Including pensioners, housewives, students, claimants, the disabled, families, etc., joining together in solidarity for peace.

*Note This does not include emergency workers and carers, whose work and travel we support. Police, Fire Service, Nurses, Doctors, Ambulance Crews, Carers, and Emergency Utility Workers.

*WITHDRAW LABOUR* No Work

*NO SHOPPING* Boycott all shops & supermarkets

*SHUTDOWN* Nurseries, Schools, Colleges, Universities

*DON’T BUY PETROL* Boycott all petrol stations

*NO TRANSPORT* Except emergency & essential workers

*NO TV* Boycott the TV networks – they sensationalise war

Forward Plan:

Prepare for the strike days in advance so that we are organised and have enough food, drink and medical supplies to carry us over a week to facilitate any disruption our action may cause us.

Make sure we have enough provisions for children and the elderly, our families,not forgetting any pets.

Let people in your area know, including older and vulnerable people, so they have time to prepare.

Enjoy your time off to relax and reflect; spend precious time with family and friends. Treat it like you would an extended Christmas break.

* If necessary, we will continue to call follow-up strikes, in order to make our Government comply with the wishes 0f the people -who elected them- and whom they serve.

Under international law it is a criminal offence to assist in a crime against humanity, a crime against peace and a crime of genocide. Therefore to go ‘ON STRIKE FOR PEACE’ to save life can only be a moral duty and not an offence in law.

(Source: Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, Article 25)

(c) For the purpose of facilitating the commission of such a crime, aid, abet or otherwise assist in its commission or its attempted commission, including providing the means for its commission

We ask all people to be united in peaceful non-violent inaction.

Pass the message on, nationally and internationally.

Peace Strike operates a 24-hour on-going ‘Peace Picket’ at Parliament Square, London, UK.

White Flag Revolution

General Peace Strike

Saturday 20th November 2010

ongoing….

SHUT DOWN WESTMINSTER /WHITEHALL

A non-violent direct action to shut down Westminster and Whitehall including other Cities and Towns across the United Kingdom starting on Saturday 20th November. Following the STOP THE WAR demonstration from Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square proceed with us down Whitehall / Westminster carrying white flags for peace in order to make a historical stand from 4.30pm.

This will be a peaceful protest.
Bring tents, sleeping bags and refreshments, white flags, make banners, placards.
Be prepared to stay as long as needed.

Help leafleting and campaign with us to mobilise the widest possible support. Online media can also reach millions. Use Facebook, Twitter, your email, website, blog etc. Following the demonstration we need a 60,000+ critical mass of Volunteers to then proceed to Westminster and Whitehall to send a determined message to our Government that the war in Afghanistan must end!

“Everyone can make a difference”
This war is unwinnable

Please join this crucial demonstration in Westminster and Whitehall which will give back a voice to the anti­war majority in this country and tell the politicians the time for peace is… NOW!

The war in Afghanistan has entered its 10th year, longer than World War I and World War II combined.
77% of the general public do not support the illegal war and occupation of Afghanistan.
342 service personnel have been killed – twice the number killed in the Iraq war to date, with over 4,000 seriously wounded field hospital admissions,.
⚫Tens of thousands of unarmed innocent Afghan civilians have been killed since 2001, with 2010 the worst year yet.

Too many innocent lives in Afghanistan are being lost.

What for?

“Afghanistan Time for Peace.”

To Stop War – The People Must Stop!

The Orange Revolution ­ staged by the people of the Ukraine, followed the 2004 Presidential elections, for which,  it was claimed showed massive corruption, fraud and voter intimidation.
This democratic revolution was highlighted by a series of acts of civil disobedience, mass sit­ins and general strikes, with thousands of supporters camping out along the central streets of Kiev.

“Lets UNITE now for future Peace.”
The people are saying;

“CUT THE WAR, NOT OUR BUDGETS!”

Listen to the people

Why it’s time for the troops to come home

We, the people, have nothing more to lose by taking a stand  now for common humanity.
We need UK forces to withdrawn soon; we need to break the NATO coalition. If we don’t act now, this could result in an escalation of war into Iran
.

So much bravery, loyalty, devotion; so many young lives already destroyed. Unmanned drone planes continue to bomb Pakistan daily, despite the fact that NO declaration of war has been made. This is not reported within mainstream media.

The war in Afghanistan is a mess. The insurgency grows,  and why wouldn’t it: foreign troops have invaded and occupied their country! The people responsible for 9/11 are no longer there. So why are we?
Why are we offering up the lives of our sons and daughters every single day, for no reason anyone can define. The October 20th Governments budgets cuts are upon us. These are the severest spending cuts since the 1930s – all in order to fund an illegal war.
Prime Minister Cameron says our British troops will be in Afghanistan at least another five years at a cost of £5bn a year, while cutting child benefits to save £1bn a year and cutting housing benefit to
the poor to save £1.8bn a year.
Following the successful withdraw of our service personnel, we, as a country
must take responsibility for ongoing humanitarian aid and support to the people of
Afghanistan.

Peace Strike is committed to bring our service personnel back from Afghanistan alive, and to aid in the prevention of further conflicts within the middle east especially Iran.
