Cut war not welfare

Among the speakers at yesterday’s 5000 strong London protest to mark the 10th anniversary of war in Afghanistan was Billy Hayes, General Secretary of the CWU, who referred to this year's TUC Congress, and the overwhelming opposition to the war in Afghanistan and support for an end to the bombing of Libya. Billions of pounds had been spent ‘uselessly’ in Afghanistan and billions more would be wasted if the British withdrawal is delayed to 2014 as planned by the Con Dem government:http://www.cwu.org/billy-hayes/?p=376
