1. 'War On Iraq: Is it also a war on our communities? The implications for BME Londoners?'

The Black Londoners Forum host the first of a series of community forums

'War On Iraq: Is it also a war on our communities? The implications for BME Londoners?'
Time: 6pm
Date: 27th March 2003
Venue: Committee Room 5, City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London (Nearest tube station London Bridge)
The Debate will examine the following:
• Whilst only 20 per cent of Londoners support Britain joining a US-led action against Iraq without United Nations approval, 72 per cent oppose it (YouGov survey, Feb. 2003). What does this mean for democracy?
• What are the possible repercussions of conflict on BME communities?
• Will war provoke more acts of terrorism in the future?

George Galloway (MP for Glasgow Kelvin)
Mike O'Brien (Foreign Office Minister) TBC
Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham
Michael Gove(Assistant editor of the Times)
Dr. Ghada Karmi (Palestinian Academic)
