PEACE PROTESTERS will march through the centre of Haverfordwest today (Saturday) to voice their opinions on the UK’s involvement in air strikes in Syria.

On Friday, April, April 13, UK, the US and France hit sites near Damascus and Homs, in response to an alleged chemical attack on Douma on April 7.

Prime Minister Theresa May has said it was "legally and morally right" for the UK to join air strikes against the Syrian regime to prevent "further human suffering", telling MPs there was "clear evidence" the Assad government was behind the Douma chemical weapons attack.

But the decision has caused uproar with many in Pembrokeshire.

Campaigners say the decision should have been subject to a vote in Parliament.

Legally, UK prime ministers do not need Parliament’s approval before launching military action, although they have done so since the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Following calls online for action, Pembrokeshire Stop the War group has taken swift steps to organise a demonstration.

Today’s march will assemble on the Old Bridge in Haverfordwest at 12.30 and march to Castle Square at 1pm where there will be a rally and speakers.

There will also be an open mic where anyone will be welcome to say a few words and air their feelings about our foreign interventions and the recent bombing of Syria.

A spokesman from Stop the War said it was "vital people get out on to the streets and demonstrate".

"We strongly condemn the missile attacks on Syria on Friday which will have only brought the Syrians more misery and destruction," he said.

"They will have done nothing to end the war or alleviate their suffering "The overwhelming majority of people in this country oppose this action just as they have opposed the series of wars of the last 17 years."
