Issued 29th August 2013 by the International Office of Dr Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi said: ‘what a civilized world needs is politics with principles.’ The British Parliament has demonstrated this effectively.

As the difficult issues of Syria challenge us the world needs to free itself from the military industrial complexes that stoke violence and make profits from the blood and lives of innocent people. President Eisenhower had warned us of the consequences in 1953 and we are now learning the lesson!

Ultimately the British Parliament has shown the courage to reject military solutions to world problems.

I agree with the Nobel Peace Laureates Archbishop Tutu and Mairead Maguire and stand with them in their call for ‘human intervention’ and ‘dialogue’ to lead the way to peace and reconciliation in Syrian. end/.
