10th Anniversary Of 15 February 2003 Protests Against The Iraq War

EDM number 1055 in 2012-13, proposed by Caroline Lucas on 07/02/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Iraq and Military operations.

That this House notes that 15 February 2013 marks 10 years since the largest ever political demonstration in UK history, with between one and two million people marching in London against the then-imminent Iraq war; further notes that anti-war protests involving many millions of people took place that day across the world; deeply regrets that the war went ahead and that the will of the people was ignored; and believes that any decision to engage in armed conflict should be subject to prior approval via a free vote by Parliament rather than relying on prerogative power.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
