Remembering Iraq

News in Brief

On 30 July, WWII merchant navy veteran and 1991 Gulf Peace Team camper Richard Crump, 87, marked 16 years of his weekly Whitehall vigil for Iraq. Originally a demonstration against the economic sanctions on Iraq, the vigil has continued as a protest against the US/UK occupation - and against the entire “war on terror”. Most Mondays, Richard can be found at the corner of Whitehall and Parliament Square between 12noon and 2pm.
