PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT RIGHT TO 'PUT HUMAN LIFE FIRST' SAY PEACE CAMPAIGNERS

CND press www.cnduk.org


The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament today welcomed the release of the hostage Angelo de la Cruz and praised the Philippine government for withdrawing its military presence from Iraq. CND Chair Kate Hudson congratulated the Philippine government for their decision to "put human life first" and pull out of the violent occupation of Iraq. She called on the UK government to follow suit.

 

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament has always opposed the war on Iraq. It condemns the occupation as both Illegal and immoral and calls for the immediate withdrawal of troops.

 

Kate Hudson, Chair of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament said:

 

"On the day Tony Blair defends the indefensible in the Commons debate on the damning Butler report the Philippine government has put human life first and shown that there is a better way. It has acted to end the cycle of violence by pulling out of Iraq.

 

We demand that our government follows suit and rethinks its warlike approach to solving the complex problems of the world today. The violence will only end when the troops are withdrawn and there is full legitimate sovereignty for Iraq."
