EDM 300 - MAIL THIS NEWS TO FRIENDS IN BRITAIN
01 Jan 2004
A Motion has just been tabled in the British Parliament, which calls the United States Government to account for breaching the Geneva Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention.
In the interests of peace, a Motion has just been tabled in the British Parliament, which calls the United States Government to account for breaching the Geneva Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention.


Austin Mitchell, MP for Great Grimsby, has tabled Early Day Motion number 300 in the House of Commons. This is an in-House Resolution which invites the signatures of MPs during the next twelve months. If enough Mps sign, the subject will become a significant mainstream news story. The key to the Resolution is in its last two lines, which are a challenge to Tony Blair and, ultimately, to the Bush Administration. During its first three days in circulation, EDM 300 was signed by 14 MPs. Their names and its text may be seen by clicking on:
http://edm.ais.co.uk/weblink/html/motion.html/ref=300


Please consider writing to your MP and forwarding this message to everyone who you think may also do so. (If you are overseas with friends in the UK, please forward this to them now, so that THEY may do so.) Given the speed of e-mail and with the possibility of such help multiplying, tens of thousands of people in Britain could already be asking their MPs the same question when our Parliament re-convenes on 5 January. Simply put, the question is: Please will you sign Austin Mitchell’s Early Day Motion number 300, entitled ‘Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention and Iraq’, tabled on 16 December 2003?


If you can’t remember who your MP is, look here:

Posted letters addressed to MPs at The House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA are most effective and should elicit a written reply.


Alternatively, you may send a fax via:

Or most MPs may be e-mailed via: http://www.parliament.uk/directories/hciolists/alms.cfm


If your MP signs EDM 300, you could also write and thank them and ask that they canvass the support of other MPs.


If you would like further background to EDM 300, an article is on the Web site of Paul Flynn MP at: http://www.paulflynnmp.co.uk/mustreaddetail.jsp?id=789


Please forward this to all your friends now. Thank you. Peace on earth and goodwill to you and your family.
