Letters Extra: Greenwich petition

11th April 2003 at 01:00

The following educational workers in Greenwich agree with the fact that the removal of Saddam Hussein would benefit his country and the population for obvious reasons, ie, his dictatorialmurderous role in Iraq. However, we wholeheartedly disagree with the methods being implemented at the present moment in time, for example over 50 per cent of the population of the country are children aged 14 and under.

There are other ways of dealing with him and his forces, we do not believe that they have been followed up and explored to the full.

Yours in solidarity,

Brian Ferber (Joint Branch Secretary, NUT) PC
