Demonstration Against George Bush in London!

Sunday 15 June 2008 at 5.00pm

Parliament Square

Called by Stop the War Coalition and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament


Below are statements by three prominent figures joining the campaign to say: George Bush not welcome here. Together with many more, they will be handed in to Gordon Brown at Downing Street as part of our demonstration on Sunday 15 June. We are encouraging all our supporters to contact any leading politician, trade unionist, member of the the legal profession or celebrity in the world of the arts that they know and ask them to add their statement.

HAROLD PINTER , playwright and Nobel prize winner:

"There is no more suitable candidate for Leading War Criminal than George Bush. The only person that comes anywhere near him is Tony Blair. They are both beneath contempt. Bush should certainly be arrested and sent to Guantanamo Bay where he can rot forever."

LOUISE CHRISTIAN, human rights lawyer:

"George Bush bears a heavy responsibility as the leader of the most powerful country in the world who has comprehensively turned his back on the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights of 1948 and the whole concept of international law."

MOAZZAM BEGG , former Guantanamo detainee:

"History will judge G.W. Bush as the man who wreaked devastation and destruction on earth even as he was having men tortured in the world's most notorious and secret prisons."
