For immediate release: Thursday 26th September 2003

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB), and the Stop the War Coalition (SWC) are organising a demonstration on Saturday 27th September. The march will assemble at 12 noon at Speakers Corner, Hyde Park, going to Trafalgar Square.

CND’s opposition to the war on Iraq has been totally vindicated. CND were against the war because it was an illegal, immoral and has been clearly proven – an unjust war.

CND is calling for – ‘No More War Lies’. CND demands a public inquiry and no more lies to send this country into another war. CND demands the end of the occupation of Iraq and the government and resources of Iraq to be returned to the Iraqi people.

Kate Hudson, CND Chair said “We demand honesty in government and ethics in foreign policy”
