Video Clips 8 – “I’m here because they’re lying to us really …. / …. It doesn’t make any sense to me at all.”

Person 1:

I’m here because they’re lying to us really. If they said that they wanted to get rid of Saddam, I’d be very happy. I’ve been marching against Saddam since before he bombed Halabja, and it would have been nice to see some more than, there was about a hundred and fifty of us after Halabja, on that march – no MPs, didn’t – Well there was Corbett I think, but Tony Blair certainly wasn’t there. If he said now, we’d like to get rid of Saddam, I’d be very happy, and I’d march for him. But to say its because of Al-Qaeda, and it’s because of ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ – what of load of rubbish, huh?

“I’m surprised, the media seems to be very anti-war…”

But I think the thing that we miss here in Britain, is that Bush is just obsessed with finishing of what his dad did, and for him it’s a personal crusade for his Dad.”

What about the UN resolutions against Israel ?, you know, it’d be really nice to see resolutions against Israeli behaviour taken seriously, cos so far its yet to happen. I think the Palestinian question is a big issue, and bombing Iraq really isn’t going to help that much.”

Interviewer:

Why are you here?

Person 2:

“Because I think it’s a terrible idea that we’re going to go and murder people for an imperialist war in Iraq.”

I just don’t believe them, I just think they’re talking rubbish. It doesn’t make any sense to me at all.”

I just think it’s time to start listening to … the things that really make sense.”

This doesn’t make any sense at all to me, it’s just violence, and corruption, and evil and wrong. That’s all I’ve got to say. Thank you very much.”
