Have your say on war

29th February 2008 at 00:00
The wisdom of keeping the military in Iraq is up for debate online.

Students aged under 18 can make their feelings known until March 14 at www.HeadsUp.org.uk, a website designed to ensure young people's voices are heard by decision-makers.

The debate, Defence d-day ... Should our forces be in Iraq?, is run by the Hansard Society and involves Members of Parliament.

Participants will also consider other issues:

- Should we intervene in overseas conflicts?

- What is the impact on the families of those serving in the armed forces?

- Do we stop and think about life in post-war zones such as Iraq, Afghanistan or the Balkans?

The website is described as a "non-partisan, cross-party educational resource that provides a secure, structured and student-centred discussion platform".
