BROMSGROVE and Redditch Green Party representative and former Parliamentary candidate Spoz joined some 300 people outside Waterstones in Birmingham City Centre to protest against the bombing of Syria.

Spoz – aka Giovanni Esposito – gave a speech at the Don’t Vote for War Protest where he was joined by speakers including Stop the War Coalition chairperson and former Respect Party councillor, Salma Yaqoob.

There were also representatives from The People’s Assembly Against Austerity, the National Union of Teachers, Socialist Worker, Momentum, the Labour party and Birmingham City Council on Wednesday.

During the event, Mr Esposito told The Standard: “It was great to see so many people supporting, what is after all, a common sense cause.

“It may kill some blood thirsty terrorists, but it could also kill innocent men, women and children.

“This is unacceptable on every level.”

With the vote to bomb Syria made several hours after the protest, he later said: “To say I’m disappointed is the under statement of the century.

“I’m utterly disgusted with the decision, it just goes to show that common sense is not that common in the Houses of Parliament.

“These people do not represent the majority of British people.”
