Dear list members, FYI. Though a bit 'overripe' a message, I think, it's deserving a reminder. Also see Plaid Cymru's 'Archif y Wasg' for their vocal stands against the Afghanistan bombing raids, Blairism etc. Best andreas A N U Assyrian News Watch * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Assyrian Chaldean Syriac ------------------------------------------------------------------- Plaid Cymru - the Party of Wales .... Press Releases ...... Datganiadau i'r Wasg ... Gorffennaf 19fed.....July 19th 2002 European Leader to speak at Swansea anti-war rally Plaid Cymru the Party of Wales’ European Leader will address a rally in Swansea tomorrow (Saturday, 20 July) when she will call on Tony Blair to listen to public opinion and resist US plans to launch military action against Iraq. Jill Evans MEP, who is also Plaid Cymru International Affairs Spokesperson, will join protestors at Castle Square from 2pm. She said: "We oppose military action by the USA and Britain against Iraq as it would have no legal or moral justification, and would intensify international tension and conflict. It would also inevitably lead to the death of many more innocent people. "Tony Blair must understand that there is enormous opposition to an attack on Iraq with cross-party support for Plaid Cymru’s view that the United Nations alone should decide on the course of action to be taken." Plaid Cymru - The Party of Wales is also calling for the lifting of the economic sanctions which have caused so much misery and suffering for the Iraqi people. It says that there is no justification for the sanctions following Iraq's withdrawal from Kuwait and their abolition would act as an effective incentive for Iraq to co-operate on the international level. Jill Evans MEP, who is chair of CND Cymru and represents the whole of Wales in the European Parliament, added: "There must be consistency in the international response to breaches of UN Resolutions. Iraq for example is being treated very differently to Israel." The rally takes place at Castle Square, Swansea tomorrow (Saturday, 20th July) starting at 2pm. Diwedd/Ends.
