Afghanistan and Iraq

I think there are plenty of things to to stop already without an attack on Iran like the 'wars' in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Also I remember there being plenty of petitions before the Iraq war (even more), and they stopped NOTHING. Sane & logical responses are needed.

Will the 200th be as effective as the 199 that went before it ?

Yet more pathetic, gesture actions that reinforce the self righteous feelings of those involved while achieving zero.

No war but the class war

What's the point of petitions?

They change nothing. Don't waste your energy: start sabotaging the war machine directly, that's the only way anything will change.

People will achieve nothing with petitions. May I remind liberals and re(con)formists that petitions were handed to the Government against an attack on Iraq and against UK support for Israeli oppression yet have achieved nothing. We need to start organisisng against the root causes of war, pollution, poverty, oppression, slavery etc and those reasons are profit, capitalism and the state.

To clarify, my comment was not meant as an attack on Maria, who has been dedicated in her campaigning at Parliament Square. All you are doing is insulting me by saying I have a small mind - I have not insulted anyone (do I accuse you of boosting Marias and your ego? or having a small mind. No of course not).
I am only commenting on the reality that petitions do not seem to have worked. Only that part. If you and others do not want to discuss how to actually achieve something then that is up to you.
