No to Johnson’s war drive

Following the Foreign Secretary’s talk of attacking Syria, Left Unity Principal Speaker, Joseph Healy, said:

“At a time when the prospect of nuclear war hangs over North East Asia, Boris Johnson has decided to sound the war drums over Syria. Not only that but he seriously proposes to bypass Parliament with any such decision! Has Johnson learnt nothing from the lessons of the Iraq war and from other Western interventions in the Middle East?

“This is yet another example of the centralisation of power by this government, treating parliament as mere window dressing. Even Johnson’s icon Churchill said that jaw-jaw was better than war-war.

“Left Unity condemns this attempt by the Tories to drag the UK into yet another war in the Middle East. We will work with the peace movement and all progressive organisations to oppose this warmongering.”


Left Unity is active in movements and campaigns across the left, working to create an alternative to the main political parties.
