STOP THE WAR COALITION AND VIOLENCE IN IRAQ

  • Session: 2003-04
  • Date tabled: 14.10.2004
  • Primary sponsor: Barnes, Harry
  • Sponsors:

    That this House notes that the Stop the War Coalition leaders recently put out a statement by e-mail to its supporters which backed 'the legitimacy of the struggle of the Iraqi people, by whatever means they find necessary' to end occupation; believes that this scurrilous statement would strongly imply support for the so-called resistance and thereby acquiesce in the murders of more people such as Ken Bigley, as well as hundreds of ordinary Iraqis; further notes, however, that versions of the statement published in the Morning Star and on the Stop the War website exclude the words 'by whatever means they find necessary'; expresses the hope that the Coalition's leadership has disavowed these outrageous words which will only encourage those who use physical force in Iraq; and urges the Stop the War leadership to clarify its position without delay, reassure the public that they have not lost their moral bearings and, if this is a policy statement made internally to their membership, to withdraw it and institute internal action against those who issued this terrible statement to make sure that such highly offensive positions are never taken again.
