Despite heavy rain, around 30 protesters joined a Stop the War protest against the bombing in Syria outside the new Broadway shopping centre on Saturday.

Socialist Party members joined the protest with placards and leaflets, running out of the latter due to the broadly positive response the protest received from those passing by. Most people could see that the invasion and bombing a number of countries in the Middle East hadn’t made them more stable, but had in fact destabilised them and created the basis for ISIS to develop.
Plans are underway to relaunch Stop the War in Bradford and at the end of the demo those there promised to gather there again at 5pm on the day Cameron decides to go for a vote in favour of bombing Syria.
