Liberal Democrats’ spring conference at The Sage in Gateshead was the focus of
an anti-war protest organized by the British Veterans’ Group (BVG) on Saturday
10th March 2012.
BVG members were joined by non-veterans in their common cause of ending the abuse of our armed forces, who are fighting global capitalist wars in foreign lands. One hundred and twenty British service personnel have died since the Liberal Democrats jumped into bed with the Conservative party to form the coalition government in May 2010.
The British National Party’s Veterans Officer, Pete Molloy, said: ‘Our “No more loss of British blood” protest brought it home to members of the public as they passed us, with many of them expressing their support.
‘I would like to thank Northumberland Police for facilitating our protest, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.’
The British National Party’s National Organiser and BVG member Adam Walker was happy with how the protest went and thanked all those who took time out to show support for our armed forces.
Mr Walker said: ‘The Lib Dems are hypocrites because they have sold their principles on the war for the sniff of power. Shame on Nick Clegg and shame on the Lib Dems.’
Mr Molloy added: ‘This protest is only the start of the BVG’s political campaigns. We will not just be campaigning against foreign wars: we have plans to protest against other organizations or individuals who are against our armed forces, such as Islamic extremists.’
