How do we stop endless war waged by United States and its allies? | Stop the War Coalition

by Jeremy Corbyn MP

NEARLY 5,000 people have already died in the Mediterranean in the last 17 months, trying to get to a place of safety. Thousands of Rohingya people have died in the Andaman Sea trying to save themselves. And many bodies have been discovered in unmarked graves in Malaysia.

Across the world people are seeking to flee oppression and violence. They are often victims of war that is being conducted in the name of Western militaristic adventures and the quest for natural resources, and it is ordinary people who suffer.

The Mediterranean death toll included people from Iraq, Palestine, Somalia, Eritrea, Mali, Libya and, of course, Syria. Refugees from Afghanistan desperately trying to escape deepening violence and increasing poverty try to travel overland to Europe, entering from Turkey into Greece.
