A ring of steel has been thrown around the Welsh Cities of Newport and Cardiff as this coming week Wales plays host to the NATO summit, at the Celtic Manor Hotel and Leisure resort Newport. During this summit Cardiff castle will hold a champagne banquet while food bank queues mount in the rest of the city. Ten thousand police are being drafted in, to police what is expected to be Wales largest ever protest. This doesn’t include private security
No doubt this summit, to be attended by Barack Obama, will discuss the current situation in the Ukraine and who else the Americans and its cohorts, including the UK, can bomb in the next twelve months. We vote these people in and we hand over our power to them. Then they fence themselves off and stick two fingers up at us, whilst indulging in boundless hedonism and decadence.
Tomorrow I will be travelling down to Newport from Nuneaton by car, then a train into Newport from Pontypool in order to attend the Newport no NATO march anyone is free to join me and welcome to stay over in Nuneaton for an early depart tomorrow. I will be representing Veterans For Peace.
