On Saturday 28th NOV, a group of people marched in Queen Street, Cardiff, standing in a heavy storm, holding the slogan “Don’t bomb Syria.” They were trying to convince politicians before the vote on UK’s military action in Syria.
After the Paris attack, David Cameron has proposed the UK join the military action in Syria against ISIS, a vote of whether UK will be sending air strikes in Syria will be hold on Wednesday next week. A group of activists gathered together to urging their MPs to consider carefully before voting taking Britain into the war.
The organizer of this protest Adam Johannes said: “British foreign policy is not exactly brimming with success stories over the last decade. Afghanistan? Iraq? Libya? There’s not a bad situation that our interventions haven’t made worse.”
Invading other countries had never worked before and Britain invading Syria will only make the situation worse. Salha from the Muslim council said: “have we not learned from the invasion of Afghanistan? Have we not learn from the invasion of Iraq. Now we are about possibly to invade Syria. “
Pippa Bartolotti from the Welsh Green Party said: “I hope you all have be in touch with your MPs ,I have a long conversation with mine, and he is going to vote against, and as a green I am very pride to say , the green will vote obviously against the war . Next week we might be in a war, all we can do is lobbying our MPs, let us make people against the war, let us make sure that Cameron loses.”
