As soon as the first bombs dropped on Baghdad, members of the United Socialist Party (USP) in Sri Lanka (section of the CWI) got to work making more than a hundred large hand-written posters with the slogan ’Bush, get out of Iraq! Let the Iraqi people take action!’
Day X. Sri Lanka.
Socialists’ anti-war poster campaign
As darkness fell, they set out across Colombo, the capital city, to paste them up wherever they could. As dawn broke, the message made a big impact on people.
No other party has organised any such protest. Mass demonstrations have not yet taken place in Sri Lanka since US imperialism’s started its invasion. However proposals for joint action will be put forward at a meeting of Left organisations this Saturday (22 March).
