Stop the Olympic Missiles meetings
PROTEST: Called by Stop the Olympic Missiles – http://www.stoptheolympicmissiles.org
Saturday 30th June
Wennington Green, Mile End Park, London E3 5SN
As part of the Olympic Games this summer, the Ministry of
Defence is planning to place surface-to-air missiles on rooftops
in residential areas around London, including in East London.
There has been no consultation with local people about the
missiles, nor has any risk assessment been conducted. The
presence of missiles in the local area will create a real danger
and does not serve reasonable security purpose.
We demand that the Ministry of Defence scraps the plan immediately.
Do we want missiles in our communities?
