TOMMY SHERIDAN'S COLUMN: Striking a blow.
THEY strike - we strike. That should be the clarion call of the anti-war movement.
Senior school students should leave their schools, other students should leave their colleges and universities.
Workers should stop work. We should all take action for at least an hour on the day the bombardment begins.
As The Proclaimers sang in the 1980s: "What do you do when democracy fails you?"
After the demos, the lobbies, the letters to MPs, and the petitions its now time for peaceful direct action and civil disobedience. Walk out for at least an hour. Declare publicly - NOT IN MY NAME.
At 5pm on the day of the attack, attend the vigils in your town centre or organise one yourself.
On Saturday either demonstrate in your own town or city or travel to Glasgow's George Square for 12 noon and take part in the action along with tens of thousands of others
PROTEST: Walk out to register your opposition
